ABSTRACT

This study aimed at describing the potential effect of teachers’ work-related stress on their job performance in the elementary schools of Southern Papua, Indonesia. To attain this objective, we employed a quantitative approach using a survey research design. Two quantitative survey questionnaires using a four point Likert’s scale were administered to 1062 teacher respondents which were incidentally drawn from amongst 3078 elementary schools’ teachers of Southern Papua. Data were analyzed quantitatively using simple linear regression analysis technique by employing Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 21. Result of data analysis revealed a significant negative effect of teachers’ stress on their job performance in the elementary schools of Southern Papua. It means that the lower teachers’ stress the higher teachers’ job performance, the higher teachers’ stress the lower teachers’ job performance. Finding of this study may theoretically contribute a valuable extension of the existing researches as it gives an insight into the stress and job performance of elementary school teachers who survive in the challenging context of Southern Papua, Indonesia.
