The present investigation is an attempt to create a successful teacher’s profile as perceived by school students. The successful teachers were identified informally by enquiring the students. Then students of successful teachers are taken as samples. Data was collected by face-to-face interview with every sample. Every student’s response was recorded. The sample’s responses were in a statement. These statements refer a particular character of a teacher. Therefore the investigators have given a particular term for such statements. The terms are treated with percentage analysis. A database of successful teacher’s profile is created in conclusion, which contains 31 characters of a teacher.
