Abstract: A questionnaire survey was conducted on 844 primary school teachers in Maltese state schools to investigate the prevalence of stress and the level of job satisfaction. Three out of every 10 teachers rated their job as very/extremely stressful. Length of teaching experience and age-group taught were found to be moderators of teacher stress. The great majority of respondents (75·5%) were fairly/very satisfied with teaching. Sex and age-group taught proved to be moderators of job satisfaction. The results revealed significant negative correlations between self reported teacher stress and job satisfaction, and between teacher stress and intention to take up a teaching career a second time.
