A three-tier diagnostic test was used to analyze the data, which revealed that the average percentage of misconceptions faced by teachers was 58% in a medium category. The results also showed that physics teachers had the highest rate of misconceptions in the Potential Difference sub-concepts (94%), while the Series Circuit concept had the lowest proportion of misconceptions (25,50%). misconceptions experienced by physics teachers must be addressed immediately, because it will have an impact on students' conceptions. The results of this study are very important for policy makers, especially the Education Office to find solutions in breaking the chain of physics misconceptions
