Abstract

Recently research has focused on issues involving novice ESOL attrition and stress (Farrell, 2012); one potential obstacle may be feelings of isolation. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between gender and loneliness on perceived stress amongst novice ESOL teachers. We hypothesized that female teachers will report higher levels of loneliness compared to males and that higher levels of loneliness will predict higher levels of perceived stress. Graduates from two TESOL graduate programs (N=47) were surveyed. Regression analyses revealed that when controlling for gender, loneliness significantly predicted higher levels of perceived stress, t (45)= 4.05, p <.001.
