Sociological Issues 2 Do teachers really like teaching students. Yes to me I think that they do. When I was substituting in high school here, I loved teaching the students for they are constantly learning new things. Teachers of young students love the freshness, the innocence of their students. The middle school age teachers are serious about shaping young minds and influencing students to make good choices in life, and teachers of upper secondary students believe in shaping pre-adult minds to be productive citizens and leaders. Usually, before education majors take a single education course, they already have a particular love for a field of study. They may love biological sciences and then decided to become a teacher. They may love to write or study literature and then decided to become a language arts teacher. Love of subject is why many teachers teach. It's a personal driving force that influences teachers to want to share that knowledge and love of content area with students. The love of teaching, the creative planning, the pulling together of ideas, the development and organization of curriculum, the fascination of seeing students when they learn something new; these all contribute to love of teaching for most teachers. The ones that lose this love of teaching, sadly burnout and leave the profession, or worse, remain in the profession without desire or drive. But where there is love of teaching, students are inspired by the very inspiration that drives teachers to teach. Teachers desire to influence those they teach, to make a difference in the world. Making a difference means living a life that projects professional integrity. It means being a role model for their students, influencing the next generation's values and goals.

It is love of students, love of subject, love of teaching, the pay and benefit incentives, and the opportunity to be a good role model and make a

These are the copious note- takers (that is, in college; in earlier schooling, most Verbal’s’ needs are addressed in the classroom and they often seldom study and still manage decent grades) and will even copy their own notes over. These people are not the ones who put nasty yellow highlighter all over their books, but they ARE the ones who write (nearly) as much in the
