Kouyimoussou virginie

The particularity of this article lies in the identification of the determinants of the resilience of teachers working in disadvantaged environments in Mbama school district. This research aims to examine these determinants of resilience in order to contribute to the development of teacher resilience in Congo Brazzaville and to request the political decision-makers’ participation for the improvement of their working conditions. The quantitative method, based on the questionnaire we used, enabled us to identify the difficulties these teachers face and how they cope. The results reveal that the courage, the will, the conviction, the vocation, and the ability to overcome difficulties are the determinants, which contribute to the resilience of these teachers. Given its importance, resilience deserves to be encouraged in teachers, in order to be prepared for it, so that, they are no longer surprised by stressful situations in both their professional and social lives.
