1.1  Background of Study

Teachers play very important role in the learning process of students who idealize teachers and try to copy them. Moreover, teachers are the hub of educational system in the world and Nigeria in particular. Therefore, teachers, are the forefront of the battle of national development.

National Policy on Education encapsulates this as “Teachers educational shall continue to be giving major emphasis in all educational planning and development”. Also, the policy stipulate that, the purpose of teachers education is to produce highly motivated, conscientious and efficient classroom teachers for all level of our educational system (Goe and Stickler, 2023).


Education has being the pillar upon which all meaningful national development are built (Equasi 2023). It is the instrument which set a pace for growth, development source and understanding and issues in all their ramifications. For education to be the relevant in a society it has to be effectively taught. And this can only achieve through the use of good method and suitable instrumental material.



Teachers factors are personal attributes of the teacher that makes distinct from one another to excel in his or her chosen career. Adodo (2007) argued that one key overridden factor for the success of the students academic achievement is the teacher. Students learn at different rate and by different means, some learn better when they hear, some aroused through the experience of the teacher and her achievements.

Base on this, the teacher experience and achievement emphasizes the device that aroused internet of learners and make the lesson to be meaningful and understandable.

Teachers like other professions require people that are skillful and tactful. All teachers can teach, but some can teach with special skill. Such that learning can take place in a very simple way. That is to say, if student have their way, they can make choice of the teacher, one who is skillful and meditate the children learning.


Teachers’ experience are often considered in terms of teachers intellectual competence, mastery of the subject matter, lessons delivery skills, teachers relationship with students, motivational ability, years of teaching experience, teaching methods etc. affect students performance and learning.

The quality of education depends on the teacher as reflected in the performance of their duties where some of teachers factor influenced student’s academic performance or achievement, some of this factors are qualification, years of experience, knowledge on the subject matter, teaching methods and teaching skills.


The teachers qualification which is one of the teachers’ characteristics as usually believed to be potentially the largest influence on schools and student because of its crucial role in the teaching and learning process.

The concept of teachers’ behavioral trait, teachers’ productivity and teaching effectiveness are multi-dimensional. More of these additional experiences occur after regular school hours and considerable length to the working days. Some teaching specialization may concentrate on preparation and organization, while many others may involve on marking or extracurricular involvement.


Teachers handling subject like economics must have skill and method of teaching, experience, qualification, good manners as well as teacher-student relationship.

Teachers’ attitude can help or hurt student motivation, achievement and well-being. Recent studies found that negative teaching attitudes can impact academic achievement and increase students’ psychological disorders and physical symptoms of stress.


Teachers who use humiliation or sarcasm can leave a child feeling believed. Discipline by fear and can intimidation can be harmful to the students’ future success. Teachers who are harsh in their display of authority or are in different towards their students or lessons can leave a lingering feeling of negativity with the student.

However, the teacher is a trained professional with knowledge and skill as well as a level of competence in the task of teaching and re-modeling the students under his care. Fagbamiye (2016) remarked that teachers’ competence contributes to students academic performance.
