For this, 308 teachers, consisting of equal numbers of male and female (104 each) working in Secondary Schools of two Dzongkhag of Sarpang and Zhemgang. The Descriptive survey method was employed for the present investigation and the result reveals that in all the dimensions there is high distribution of scores in average commitment which is alarming. The distribution is negligible in other categories. Thus, it is an indication that the teachers of Bhutan show positive commitment towards their profession which is necessary for the development of the individual and school as a whole. Growth in profession does take place when the teachers are not committed to learners, society, do not exhibit love for profession, and not work to achieve excellence and basic human values. All these five dimensions generate excellent teacher who are much inspired and exemplary to other fellow mate.
