The purpose of this research was to examine the resilience building process in four novice secondary science teachers in order to understand how and why some novice science teachers remain in the profession while others choose to leave. The results of this study suggest that the interaction between stressors and protective factors constitute the primary force of the resilience process and stimulate responses to help counteract negative effects of stress. Underlying the success of the four novice teachers in this study is the notion that their resilience stems from their ability to revise protective factors in order to address changing stressors. Finally, it can be reasoned that resilience can be fostered in novice teachers as a means to encourage teacher retention.
