Nabanita Sarmah, Dr. Dulumoni Goswami
“Until and unless we have dedicated and committed teachers, who can take teaching as a mission in their lives, we cannot have a good educational system. Teacher should be the best minds in the country (Dr. S. Radhakrishanan).” The quality of teachers is, to large extent, determined by who are attracted to enter the profession and how they are trained. The community expects teachers to be highly subject- competent and proficient in pedagogy. Teacher’s success is determined not only by their skills and techniques of teaching but also by their personal qualities and ethics of teaching profession. So, a teacher should have constructive and encouraging attitude towards teaching because it makes works the work easier, gratifying and professionally rewarding. Primary education is the stepping stone for the progress of the educational system in the country. In this regard, Right to Education Act-2009 or The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act is an important attempt in our country.
