The emerging profile of pre-primary teachers is not very encouraging. The present scenario of pre-primary teachers' work environment is not at all conductive to his/her personal and professional development. Learners' optimum growth and development. The teacher has been often loaded with number od unnecessary non academic responsibilities straining his/her time and energy resources. This paucity professional front and unsupprtive environment at home front many a times creates acute stressful situation for the teahers which adversely affect not only their own well being but also the academic development of their students. Needless to say that as a consequence of a pessimistic trend sets in. These problems are incresaing at a faster rate. How it affects the job satisfaction leveles? What is level of stress the teachers are experiencing" How they are coping up with it? All these qquestions become crucial. An attempt has been made in this book to pave way as indecators/ guidelines for improving the teacher contribution to the teaching learning process. There are range of physical, psychological and behaviour symptoms one can experience if faced with high levels of stress. Some of these indicators of stress problems are increased blood pressure, incresed heasrt rate, increased muscle tension, headaches, increased anxiety, depresson, aggression, confusion, irritability, obseccive concern with trivial issues and poor work performance. The aim of stress management is to help one balance the various aspects of one's life work, relationship and leisure - and to balance the physical, intellectual and emotional aspects of life. People who effectively manage stress consider life a challenge rather than a series of irrigation, and they feel they have control over their lives, even in the face of setbacks. This book will help teachers in analysing the cause of job disssatisfacton and stress and they themselves will be able to understand their problems causing stress and job satisfaction. By being aware of their problem and coping style the person is more likely to bring about a change in his or her situation.
