Abstract: This study investigated the competence of elementary school teachers by examining the background of the diversity of education that the teacher obtained. The study was conducted on 60 elementary school teachers in North Minahasa Regency using analytical descriptive methods, questionnaires and teacher competency test documents. The data were proceeded and analyzed using qualitative statistics, and analysis of competency structure to explain determinant factors in teacher competency mastery. The findings of this study indicated that pedagogic competence and professional competence of teachers are still low at all levels of education possessed by teachers, and the structure of teacher competence is still low as well. Nevertheless it was found that teachers with a background of Elementary School Teacher Education (PGSD) had better competencies than teachers who were not. Important implications of the findings of this study indicated that teacher education in the field of study, and strengthening the process of forming and mastering teacher competencies are very important. This study recommends the teacher education paradigm to be based on the development and strengthening of teacher competency structures.
