Abstract

Relations among preservice teachers' (N = 133) life stress during teacher training (Time 1), burnout during the beginning of their first year teaching (Time 2), and career optimism at the end of the same year (Time 3) were examined. Path models revealed no direct effect of stress from daily hassles on participants’ later career optimism, but did reveal a direct negative effect of stress from lack of social support on career optimism. Indirect effects were also detected; both life stress predictors were related to increased emotional exhaustion, which was related to decreased career optimism at the end of the first year.
