The tenure of teacher is doesn’t matter because whole life they scattered the seeds of their knowledge in whole society.  They face many challenges in their personal as well as professional working conditions; these conditions may affect their mental health. Stress is a psychological disorder; it is very difficult to keep this type of stress away from today’s world of rapid industrialization and increasing urbanization. Work-related stress is a vital factor to job satisfaction. Due to this stress, a person is neither able to work properly at his workplace nor is able to fulfill their own personal responsibilities. Teaching profession can be identified as a stressful occupation in this modern challenging world which can adversely affect the health of the teachers which in turn affects the students and the learning environment.  Job stress has become a common term in today’s parlance.
