The study aimed at exploring the level of Emotional quotient among Teachers in context of the gender and the level of Institution they serve in. There were two hypotheses that were postulated as well as tested. The Emotional Competence scale by Sharma& Bhardwaj (1998) was utilised in form of the instrument to test the hypotheses. The sample comprised of 120 school and college teachers from Dehradun. Gathering of data was done through the random sampling technique. The analysis on the bases of statistical values was done using the T- test. The results showed an insignificant relationship of Emotional Intelligence with gender as well as with the Institutional level .It is further suggested that the schools and colleges should introduce programs, workshops and activities for their teachers in order to enhance their emotional skills as it will help them to effectively deal with the challenges pertaining to their profession and will help them to gain insight about not only themselves but about the emotions of the students as well.
