The working conditions at school are portrayed by several authors as being upstream of a malaise experienced by some teachers [4], [7]. This malaise, which can be observed by anxiety, psychological distress or exhaustion, can have multiple repercussions related to the professional development of teachers, the costs associated with premature departure from teaching, but also to the educational success of students [3], [4], [5]. These difficulties could be accentuated, among other things, by the environment where teachers are working [1]. In this sense, several researchers have sought to identify the factors influencing the development of well-being at work among teachers in order to better support them [8], [9], but few address the challenges of teaching in a high school’s reception class.
