Abstract

In the early years of teaching, it is prevalent that novice EFL teachers should make a lot of adjustments to the new working place which may cause some tensions for them. Under a narrative inquiry framework, the researcher collected reflective stories of five Indonesian novice EFL teachers and interviewed them to examine common tensions experienced and how they cope with these tensions. The findings revealed 19 kinds of tensions the participants faced. Self-image building and independence vs dependence on others are the most common tensions experienced, while the others are related to professional, pedagogical, and cultural matters. Furthermore, four common strategies were identified, namely looking for solutions by themselves, accepting as the situation as it is, receiving help without asking, and sharing with significant others. It is suggested that fellow teachers, school staff, and related authorities give more help to novice teachers in handling the tensions.
