Teaching is regarded as a noble career just as teachers are considered as role models to pupils and students. These days, a lot of professional misconducts could be noticed among teachers. Many teachers are now disillusioned, lazy, uncommitted, and unpatriotic. This paper is an examination of the misconducts observable among teachers, such as: immoral relationship with female pupils/students, involvement in examination malpractices, extortion of money from pupils/students, poor records keeping, involvement in commercial activities within and outside school, which have eroded the confidence reposed in them by government, parents, and other education stakeholders. To redeem the lost confidence, re-orientation of teachers, improvement in their conditions of service, among other measures, are recommended.
