The perception of teachers towards creative teachers and pupils is an essential pre-requisite for research concerning creativity in teaching, its assessment and promotion in the school context for teaching and learning in present time require a new model for education. This means that an interactive and creative education based on individual needs and abilities is essentially needed in order for the new model of education to function. The new education strategy also needs freedom in learning and teaching as an active mode of learning influences innovative personality development, which creates something unique; turning mundane lessons into lessons which are filled with creative activities. This study aims to determine the relationship between supervisor support, team knowledge sharing and autonomy support with teacher-creativity. This study also explains the significance of teacher-creativity in primary schools since the early stages in primary school is a critical phase for children’s development. The respondents for this study consist of primary teachers within two districts which are Kota Setar and Kuala Muda/Yan. The total population in which this study is concerned is 7729 while the sample size taken for this research is 364. Data collection was done using questionnaires that were written in Bahasa Melayu and English. Questionnaires have been distributed by utilizing the proportionate sampling technique for both districts. In Kota Setar, the questionnaires have been distributed using 160 questionnaires while in Kuala Muda /Yan with 220 questionnaires. Thus, 380 questionnaires have been distributed with only 200 usable questionnaires. The data has been analyzed by using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences by IBM (or more commonly-known SPSS). The software version of SPSS is version 22. Correlation and regression analysis were used to analyze all data, thus the findings show that all the relationships are significant. Consequently, all the hypotheses are also supported by previous researches regarding teacher-creativity. In conclusion, the findings of this study provide useful information to the teacher, school administrators, and Education Department regarding teacher-creativity.
