Abstract:21-st century teachers of high school are elaborating those needed approaches in education and in classroom management which not only serve good teaching but also serve the moral values and the basic skills for the development of people and societies, which have to be shaped in a decisive manner during adolescence and youth. Further to this stage, it is possible, and of course imperative, to boost practical skills, to widen knowledge and to develop virtues. Education plays crucial role in the formation of the society. It is a powerful tool to empower children and adult learners to become active participants in the process of development and transformation of their societies. Georgia is a developing country with 25 years of democracy. This country is characterized with national, cultural, religious and ethnical pluralism. These factors put great challenges towards the country and its educational system and of course towards school teachers. Teachers for maintaining effective classroom activities and creating productive lessons need not only to be good teachers and good at teaching but also to be transformative leaders and lead their students to acquire all the needed skills for being active and decent members of the country’s society.
