GARCIA LINO, Maritza Elizabeth. Work stress in secondary school teachers of a public institution in the city of Manta. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2020, n.43, pp.140-154. ISSN 2528-7907.

Assessing stress in the teaching professional is a reflective and critical challenge about the role they play, since among multiple professions, the teacher has the greatest impact on the development of the individual. The objective of this descriptive, non-experimental, cross-sectional study was to assess work stress in secondary school teachers, analyzing the relationship between sources of stress, coping strategies, and perceived health symptoms in a sample of 57 teachers from a tax institution. The Technical Note of Prevention (NTP) 574 was applied as the main tool, as well as NTP 421 and the coping strategies questionnaire. The results reveal that there is a high percentage of teachers who are in a stress situation that ranges from worrying to severe, with items related to supervision, improvement and student factors generating the most stress. A statistical relationship was found between the strategies "emotional repression" and "wishful thinking" with 71% of the grouped sources of stress, as well as psychosomatic symptoms with the supervision and adaptation factors. It is necessary to apply timely prevention measures in order to reduce the level of stress in teachers.
