Professional life of teachers has changed due to the Informational Technology. The world has become a global village, various type of educational development methodologies, activities has been introduced which are very useful for student performance.

Professional teacher performs their duties with full devotion responsibility and with honesty on the other hand non-professional teachers are dishonest and show immoral attitude of the teacher may cause the negative effect on the student performance. Professional development has key effect on student achievement from these three steps. The First, professional development improves teacher knowledge. Another, improve classroom teaching.

He generally in contact with the society and not feel any delay to request that something or offer something with others. They feel fervor while sharing thoughts and perspective to their companions, partners and also understudies. Because of this sort of act, they generally consider men of their word, splendid and reliable people in the society (Hussein Khalafalla,2017).Rational thoughts creative mind, dutiful, self-dignity, disciplined, affable and responsible these are some basic qualities of good and professional teachers (Villegas-Reimers,2003). Positive attitude of teachers plays a visible and vital role on students’ achievements and behavior (Drent & Meelissen ,2008). State of mind is the solid propensity to respond emphatically or adversely explicitly. Behavior are absolutely reliant on the psychological and passionate part of a person. Hargreaves (2000) study found and conclude that teachers who are having positive attitude dutiful and loyal with their students. They build student performance and turns their troubles into convenient and student likes a teacher and give respect to them. Some teacher who are have highly qualified and having vast experience but the attitude of their students with them is not as good as it should be. It means these teachers have not bother it to wipe out their (students) negative behaviour and turn such behaviour into positive, affable, respectful, attitude (Hussain et al.,2011).
