Abstract
The results of a qualitative study examining working conditions and psychological stress among first year women teachers were presented. Comments written by teachers participating in a quantitative study were analyzed. Four categories of comments, being happy with one's job, interpersonal tensions and lack of support among colleagues/supervisors, classroom management problems, and violence and other security problems were addressed. A selection of comments in each of the four categories were presented. Three generalizations were made based on the teachers' comments. The first was the positive influence of collegial relations on classroom management and teacher morale. The second generalization was that learning basic classroom management skills should strengthen teacher success and the third was the predicament presented by the high level of violence in schools.
