Abstract: This study entitled 'Keeping Teaching Journal for Professional Development:Teachers’ Perceptions and Practices'aimed to find out the teachers' perception towards keeping teaching journal for their professional development and practices prevalent in the academic institutions. I used non-random judgmental sampling procedure and collected data from fortysecondary level English language teachers teaching in private and publicschools in the Kathmandu valley through questionnaires. The major findings ofthe research showed that the teachers were aware of keeping teaching journal for their professional development and they had positive perception towards keeping teaching journal. Majority of the teachers considered that keeping journal had positive effect on TPD. Most of the teachers viewed that there were no practices of keeping journal systematically in their institutions. A large number of the teachers opined that they did not keep teaching journal.Similarly, the most of the teachers strongly agreed that the formal system of keeping teaching journal should be started in the institutions for TPD.
