  The importance and role of teachers, as one of the key factors in the quality teaching process, have always attracted the attention of various authors and have been the subject of numerous theoretical considerations and empirical research, both in the field of pedagogy and beyond. Given the scope and breadth of problems in the teaching process, the role of teachers and ways of teaching are studied in different areas, such as, for example: school age of students, the level of student achievement, type of school, subjects, teaching methods, forms teaching work and the like. In this paper, the role of mathematics teachers in relation to student success in this subject was studied. The research was conducted in order to determine the procedures of teachers who realize their professional role in the most important areas of teaching activities (organization and implementation of teaching; developing motivation and interest of students to learn mathematical content; achieving quality communication and interaction between teacher - student), and to determine their connection with the achieved level of student success in teaching mathematics.
