Personal aspects of teachers is an important area in teacher education studies. This they are closely linked to various issues and challenges of teachers such as attrition and early retirement. The purpose of this study is to investigate two important personal aspects among in-service teachers, namely, reasons to become a teacher and feeling about being a teacher. A total of 467 in-service teachers from public schools around Malaysia was sampled to provide responses for the study. Results showed that enjoy working with children, the opportunity to further studies and assurance of job were the three most important reasons. With regards to feeling about being a teacher, we found that primary school teachers showed significantly positive feelings compared to their secondary school counterparts. Their feeling about being a teacher was also significantly varied according to their teaching experience. Nevertheless, no significant difference was reported on the feeling of being a teacher according to gender and ethnicity. We also provide discussions within the context of teacher professional development in Malaysia.
