The present paper presents the results of the study that investigated the patterns of stress experienced by secondary school teachers in Choma District of Zambia. The study objectives included; to establish the forms of stress faced by teachers; and to recommend solutions to the identified patterns of stress. A descriptive survey design was used in the study where a sample of six secondary schools and 120 teacher were selected from the District using the simple random sampling technique. The Teacher Stress Inventory (TSI) questionnaire was employed in the study. According to the study teachers moderately experienced patterns of stress in terms of, emotional manifestation, fatigue manifestation, cardiovascular manifestation, and gastronomic manifestation but rarely experienced stress in terms of behavioural manifestation. This could be minimised by the Ministry of Education conducting seminars and workshops for the teachers on stress prevention and management together with School head teachers organising leisure events for teachers to allow teachers to refresh and be rejuvenate.
