The present research aims at investigating the burnout levels among primary teachers in independent (government) schools in Qatar. It also intends to investigate if there are significant differences in the level of burnout attributed to some demographic characteristics. The third version of the most commonly used burnout scale; Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey (MBI-ES), was utilized in order to measure participants’ burnout level. A total of 1657 participants responded and completed the questionnaire in a voluntary base. The results showed that participants have high level of burnout within the EE domain and low levels of burnout within the other two domains; DP and PA. The MANOVA analysis revealed significant differences between primary teachers’ burnout level and gender, nationality and years of teaching experience in one or more dimensions. However, no significant differences were found between burnout level and teachers’ educational level in any of burnout dimensions.
