Getting Personal with Teacher Burnout: A Longitudinal Study on the Development of Burnout Using a Person-Based Approach
The main purpose of this study was therefore to examine whether the use of a person-based approach could identify patterns of intra-individual change in burnout during the first three years of employment for beginning teachers. The authors conclude that the results showed that the majority of the beginning teachers had low levels of burnout, indicating that they coped well with the transition from education to employment. However, the results also showed that more than one in ten experienced burnout at some point during this period. Furthermore, the findings revealed that about half of the teachers experienced moderately high burnout or high burnout at some time.

Lesson planning was identified as the greatest cause of stress for student teachers because of its time-consuming nature. The author argues that the prepracticum experiences of these student teachers may have lessened the stress levels reported during the practicum.
