Adequately defining the students' perceptions about teachers has been at the core of much research and controversy for many years. The present study administered a questionnaire in the Turkish mono-lingual setting and was done as an extension of earlier studies to provide feedback to Turkish teachers. A total of 181 9, 10, 11 grade students attending four different state schools answered a questionnaire and three open-ended questions aimed at assessing their attitude toward their perceptions of teacher characteristics (professional, pedagogical, and personal), as well as learning. The results might illuminate the ways of reaching at a better learning atmosphere through self-assured and self-esteemed students.
