Abstract

In the present study, an attempt has been made to study the emotional intelligence of teachers working in Government and Private Senior Secondary School. Further, the author has tried to give suggestions to improve the emotional intelligence of teachers. Emotional intelligence has gained considerable attention in the last decade. This surge in interest is due, in part, to claims about EI's ability to predict important outcomes such as life satisfaction, peer attachment, substance abuse, depression, and loneliness. Emotions are not a form of thought, not an additional way to think, not a special cognitive bonus, but are fundamental of thought. Emotional intelligence is not a subject or an isolated skill that can be taught. The teachers role in this learning process is to act as facilitator role model to enhance student understand of emotional intelligence integrating emotional intelligence in to content areas should not be difficult, especially in language arts and social studies. Integration could be as simple as asking students to write a reflection paragraph about what they think the character in the story should do to solve the problem.
