Today’s youth character has driven further away from the values/norms adopted by the Indonesian people. In this case, teacher as the driving force of education has a very heavy duty to reclaim good characters for students. The role and function of the teacher is not only teaching but also educating. Teaching as a profession has a meaning that teacher should be able to be imitated or be used as an example in form of reasoning, action and ethics. The declining character of younger generation is also triggered by the absence of examples that can be used as idols and role models of implementing good character, therefore reexamination is required whether the teacher has already become an example or role model for students. This article discusses the importance of being a teacher with character that will lead teacher to be a role model for students. The method used is descriptive research method, which describes the problem to obtain answers. The results show that character education is shaped even more when teachers work hand in hand with students and other members of the school community to make it happen and bring it to real life. Supporting factors such as family, celebrities, officials, and community leaders should also set a good example for young people.
