Man, among the living beings, has the highest capacities to adapt to new situations. Man as a social animal not only adapts to physical demands but he also adjusts to social pressures in the society. Similar such adjustments are made by teachers while pursuing the teaching profession (Chauhan, 2001). At every point of time, a teacher has to be effective enough so as to be able to deal with the various issues that crop up in his or her work area and then adjust to the situations as required. At times, a teacher had to exhibit skillful adjustable behavior whereby he or she has to sometimes curb one’s own desires just to facilitate a proper teacher-learning or work environment. Such a task, at times is not a very easy job and it requires a teacher to have enough psychological proficiency to be able to handle all the various work situations and still teach effectively and bring about the progress of students in an apt manner. Teaching aptitude may surely help to be better adjusted in teaching job. The study was conducted on secondary school teachers of Shillong, Meghalaya. The study found that training has impact on the adjustment of teachers. The trained teachers reflected higher adjustment then untrained teachers.
