Results also revealed moderate levels of job satisfaction thus the findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between stress and job satisfaction ( r = 0.680, P(0.000)<0.05. Although moderate and moderate levels were found on both variables, it does not necessarily mean that teachers who are stressed are not satisfied with their jobs.
