The article presents a study that examines whether the irrational belief level and vocation variables indicate the burnout level of teachers in Turkey. Study sample comprises 633 elementary school teachers working in private and state primary schools in Mersin. Results of the study show that the most important variable predicting burnout is irrational belief. Research findings pertaining to vocational variables indicate that after psychological factors, the most significant contributions in predicting burnout in teachers are work experiences, type of school worked in and social support.
