Lately, school teachers graduated intelligent students who lack awareness of the importance of moral values and manners in school life and society. This is due to what students are showing is also learning outcomes, both directly and indirectly. Therefore, in short, a school tends to be a place knowledge transfer rather than character building; merely a place of teaching rather than educating. Considering the various facts above, the preparation of character teachers is an important and strategic step in rebuilding the character of students in schools who believe, devoted to God Almighty, have a noble character, are healthy, knowledgeable, capable, creative, independent, democratic, and responsible. This article reviewed some literature and theories to propose a strategy of preparing character social science teachers. Based on the study, the strategies are (1) Teachers must show their principles in teaching with how to treat their students with compassion, (2) Teachers should establish themselves as a teacher who not only transfers his/her knowledge, (3) Teachers should internalize rules that come from outside and becomes the norm and value in their life, (4) Teachers loyalty to their choice further encouraged them to continue working hard in educating his/her students with patience and diligence.
