The professional attitude of the teacher is a basic functional variable that provides instructions for changes in a teacher's behavior. The factors that influence the professional attitude of teachers include transformational leadership of school principals, job satisfaction, and teacher achievement motivation.

This study used a quantitative approach with a sample of 177 teachers selected using a proportional sampling technique from a population of 322 teachers in public elementary schools in Alalak Barito Kuala District.
