Introduction Various studies show that teachers' attitudes towards their jobs influence students' educational outcomes. Teachers in working settings are supposed to gain increasing knowledge, skills, and a positive attitude towards the teaching profession. Teachers should have knowledge and skills to execute their duties. In other words, knowledge and abilities are the most effective indicators of teachers' behaviour. Competency is a must for a successful teaching career. Competency comes from the word "competence," which indicates a person has the aptitude or talent necessary to succeed in any career. The ability to communicate effectively with students both within and outside of the classroom is a key component of effective teaching expertise. This includes everything from organizing the classroom to managing it. As a result, we may say that the efficacy and correctness of the same profession are in doubt if professional attitudes are not taken into consideration. Teachers' professional conduct can be predicted by how they feel about what they do for a living. Teachers' views are influenced by their vocational notion of what it means to be a teacher (Dabat, 2010). Because of this, it is assumed that a teacher with a supportive and upbeat attitude toward his or her job will produce the right kind of students, while a teacher with a negative outlook, regardless of his or her level of subject expertise and professional training, may have a negative impact on a student's performance (Shaheen, 2015). It is crucial to have a positive outlook on life. It's a mental condition that can be both pleasant and harmful. It is a feeling that an individual holds towards any object, person and idea. It is also defined as complex state of mind involving different feelings and beliefs (Maheshwari, 2006).It is a psychological and impartial state of mind, which is organized through experiences, exerting a dictate and active influence upon the individual's response to different situations with which it is related (Allport, 1954).Attitude towards any profession is more important both by professionals proud as well as for making commitment towards the profession. A person's attitude has a great impact on his performance. A teacher's attitude has a great effect not only on his/ her personality but to also on students. A positive attitude has a positive effect and has a favorable and enriching atmosphere for both the teacher and students. A negative attitude has a negative, unpleasant and unfavorable effect and renders the task of teacher and creates an unpleasant atmosphere in the classroom (Bandura, 1997). Attitude is made up of three components affective, behavioral and cognitive it is a measure of individual behavior (Feblman,2002). The quality of teaching is totally depending upon the teacher attitudes and his sincerity with the profession. It requires various measuring tools to be used for teaching profession. It enables the teacher to make his effort more comprehensive and deliberately successful (Dylan, 2010; Gunes, 2007; Kilmen& Demirtasli, 2009).
