The present study is aimed at determining the role of teachers' emotional intelligence components (composition class­) in predicting the aspects of creativity (writing­) among students. A descriptive-correlation method is adopted in the course of this study. The sample includes 291 students of the 10th grade as well as 10 composition teachers from the city of Qom in the academic year of 2018-2019. They were selected through multi-stage random cluster sampling and were evaluated by Torrance Test of Creativity and BarOn Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire. The results of correlation analysis and multivariate regression indicated that there is a meaningful relationship between teachers' interpersonal skills and innovation and the elaboration of creativity among students. Also, there is a meaningful relationship between teachers' stress management and flexibility, innovation and elaboration of the students. The results also indicated that teachers' interpersonal skills meaningfully predict innovation and expansion in students; their stress management meaningfully predicts flexibility and innovation in students; and their general mood meaningfully predicts the elaboration of students' creativity. The results of the present study support that the emotional intelligence components of teachers are significant to foster the aspects of students’ creativity. Therefore, holding Teacher Training Emotional Intelligence Course seems to be necessary.
