As a single educator, the possibility of experiencing stress is high, especially when working abroad. Educators are often buried with mass of schoolwork, resulting in long-working hours extending to their homes. Educator’s time revolves around their professional work and leaving little to no time for their personal development. Method: A qualitative approach that uses phenomenological research design to understand the lived experiences and behaviors of single educators, specifically in Qatar, relative to the central question: “What are the sources of stress of single teachers who are currently employed in Qatar?” Data were gathered through a twenty-five semi-structured interview and were analyzed using an inductive approach in theme development. Findings: Findings have shown the different aspects of development that educators encountered as they live as a single person. Conclusion: Once individuals recognize their stressors, it stimulates the initiative to create room for personal growth. Acknowledging everyday stressors while looking at the bigger picture of one’s life. Recommendation: to have an equal number of younger and older respondents to compare their experiences; to obtain more direct responses related to the central problem of the study; to select a wider range of teachers in different positions in the school to know possible correlation to their stress levels
