Entitled "Teacher Wellness and the Impact of Educational Restructuring in the Holy Spirit School Division," this study has sought to identify the level of well ness among teachers in this regionalized school division. Through a survey format, teachers identified and rated those factors which cause stress, and those which contribute to job satisfaction. In rating nine given factors associated with stress, inclusion of special needs children in the regular classroom provided the greatest amount of stress. Intrinsic rewards reaped through working with children proved to be the greatest contributing factor to job satisfaction. Female teachers in Divisons I and II reported greatest stress at school and while balancing personal and professional demands. Respondents reported that educational restructuring in Alberta has proven to have negative effects on the health and wellness of teachers and administrators.
