Self-esteem is the one key ingredient that affects the level of proficiency in all fields of endeavor. Self-esteem has been correlated to: job success, school achievement, interpersonal compatibility, and general happiness (Redenbach, 1991). The author was curious to know if Self Esteem was a correlate of academic achievement of B Ed students. The participants of the study were 1037 students were drawn proportionately from 14 B Ed colleges. The findings reveal that there is a positive, negligible and significant relationship between Academic Achievement and Self-esteem among the participants. The results show the need to focus on boosting the self -image and self -esteem of students so as to enhance their confidence and levels of aspirations and through that, their motivation to become competent and professional teachers.
