          Abstract

          Background:

          Teachers are at-risk of burnout due to continuous emotional demands. Existing research suggests that there is a strong relationship between the burnout phenomenon and teachers’ propensity to experience unpleasant emotions.

          Objective:

          The current study examined whether teachers' levels of burnout affect the process by which they appraise school-life events that elicit negative emotions.

          Methods:

          Participants were 316 school teachers. Teachers' appraisal of both students' negative emotion intensity (SAE) and their own negative emotion intensity (TAE) was evaluated via the Emotional Competence Questionnaire. Teachers' burnout levels were measured using the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The main hypothesis was tested by using SEM to assess a full model.

          Results:

          The findings suggest that burnout compromises teachers’ appraisal of both their students’ and their own negative emotion intensity.

          Conclusion:

          We discuss how our main findings may be interpreted and explore their implications for educational settings.
