Description Paper focuses on a stress problem and coping strategies, especially in context of teacher career. The research part of thesis deals with subjective perception of stress factors by 51 teachers at elementary school. Thesis focuses on research of coping strategies those teachers use to cope with stress. It appeared that questioned teachers consider the lack of pupils' discipline, lack of pupils' interest and time pressure as the most stressing and disturbing factors. Teacher's performance is also very much influenced by personal life events. While studying dominant coping strategies used by teachers, we resulted from classification of strategies by Janke and Erdmann and their questionnaire SVF 78. The sample of 45 teachers (women) showed that the most frequently used coping strategies are strategies of control and the strategy of compensatory satisfaction. This thesis also investigates a connection between the lenght of teaching practice and the chosen coping strategies. Significant positive relationship was revealed between the lenght of teaching practice and the positive strategy of deflection.
