Abstract: The personality of the teacher has an unconscious effect on the minds of the students; it can induce them to learn, to misbehave, to be happy, to be unhappy, to resent school and to love school (19:38-40). An employer will seldom hire a teacher without a personal interview and (or) references concerning the personality of the teacher. If personality is so important for effective teaching, it would seem that it has a special implication for the teacher training institutions in the selection and guidance of students. The institution has an obligation to the students and to the profession to graduate only those young women who have the qualifications of a successful teacher (53). "No school is greater than its staff" (28:119); thus, the education of the nation can be of no higher quality than the quality of individuals who are certified as teachers.
