The purpose of this article is to describe the representation of agency moral consciousness among magister student of the Indonesia University of Education (UPI) based on their experiences or the phenomenon of the teaching profession. In this research agency moral can be interpreted as two kinds of condition. Firstly, teachers as an exemplary figure who do their profession ethically and the second one is as a moral educator who teaches virtue values to their students, so all of them would be a person with good personality in the future. I used a qualitative method for this research with phenomenology as my framework. I also used interviews as my process of collecting the data, that designed based on moral agency building structures, which are: 1) moral identity, 2) moral sensitivity, 3) moral action. The main participant of this research is five students of the Pedagogic Masters Departments, Magister Faculty of UPI. The result of this research is all the participants interpreted that teacher is a profession that has a big moral responsibility, a teacher also specifically responsible for the future of their students and the quality of education in general. The participants said that teachers are the unsung heroes, dedicated themselves to their country and to see their students became a great human being always made them proud of being a teacher. Through moral identity development, the participants could increase their moral sensitivity by identifying some problematic situations that they had to face in their daily activity as a teacher in the school, so at the end, they could do some moral actions to emancipating the profession of teaching to be a better one.
