This paper presents findings from a cross-sectional qualitative case study conducted at a public junior high school in Banda Aceh, focusing on students’ views of their teachers’ teaching practice and teacher-students relationships. In general, students’ views about the phenomenon under investigation were in deficit terms. These included students’ deficit views of teachers’ teaching practice and commitment, and interaction with students at the school affecting the learning of the young people at school. Research in the field provides evidences that quality teachers’ teaching and positive teacher-students relationships are among important factors for students’ social, emotional, and academic achievement.
