          The word teaching has a wider scope than the way people think of it. Teaching is neither restricted to the four walls of the school where instruction is carried out for learners.
Teaching starts from the home where parents teach their children norms and values of the society. Teaching can take place when teachers plan and guide the students’ experiences such that they will learn the desired skills or knowledge as quickly as possible and make steady progress in mastering the subject.
It must be strongly noted that teaching goes along with learning. Van Dalen and Brittle (2007) defined teaching as the guidance of students through planned activities so that they may acquire the richest learning possible from their experience and required the active participation of the child. Teaching according to Ayejuyo (2010) is the act of impacting knowledge by an experience individual to an inexperienced and less matured individual.
Adolescent is a period of major change ushered in by the normal activity associated with the growths part of puberty and by changing environmental expectation it is that period in everybody’s life that lies between the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. It is a stage in human development and it is regarded as a separate culture within the larger world.
Adolescent are group of people who have their peculiar way of selecting and preparing for occupation in tasks one has chosen to perform in the adolescent stage.  Bust (2008) opined that if the adolescent is aware of his professional aspiration and the opportunities that exist for the realization of his personal ambition he will choose relevant subject that would be related to his interests everybody wants to be somebody of great important in the society.
Therefore many people choose careers not because they have the ability or trait associated with the occupation or jobs they have chosen but because of the respect and the prestige, which the occupation commands in the society. Every individual regardless of socio-economics background would like to choose occupation that is lucrative.
The teaching profession is seen by most people as a stepping stone to other jobs, consequently teacher who taught in most of our school who are graduates from universities  did not study education as their disciplines. There are some teacher whose social ways of life makes people look down on them hence having negative attitude towards the teaching profession.
Despite the fact that government has increase the salaries of teachers, some still dress shabbily and would not take up their work properly. There is saying that whatever your hand find doing do it with all your might. Teacher should be stop of reason for choosing the profession he or she choose out of the existing profession. Also people speculated that parents have great influence on children in chosen a career. In most case, it has been observed that parents do not have an interest for teaching as a profession this they tend to discourage their children from having anything to do with teaching as a career.
However students restrict their interest in some known profession than to teaching there have been speculation those adolescent attitudes towards a profession is influence by peer group they lend to choose a profession based on the profession their friend have chosen. In short this study is an attempt to find out the attitude of secondary school adolescent towards teaching profession.
