One of the most important factors in the success of education is the existence of teachers. The success of education will be largely determined by professional teachers. At the elementary level, there is a need for a professional elementary school teacher. Professional teachers are teachers who have the required competencies to perform educational and teaching tasks. Competence here includes knowledge, attitudes, and professional skills, both personal, social and academic.
