The present study addresses the globally acknowledged problems of burnout among teachers, especially as this affects private professional institutions. The study included two phases. The first phase of study uses MBI i.e. Maslach Burnout Inventory to observe the levels of burnout. In second phase of the study an attempt has been made to observe the differences in 3 factors of job burnout i.e. emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment on the basis of 4 Demographic variables i.e. age, education, gender, and marital status. Results from the present study confirmed that teachers working in private professional institutions report high level of burnout. Their observed level of emotional exhaustion was more than the standard level. Besides this their depersonalization level was more and personal accomplishment was low. But no noticeable differences were found in the dimensions of job burnout on the basis of age, gender, marital status, and education, but overall job burnout was higher than the standard level. It is recommended that teacher burnout should not be seen only as individual problem, but also an organizational problem and effective strategies on administrative part must be put in place in order to keep healthy, low burnout environment.
