Teachers are effective when they deeply care about the learning of each student. “Caring is the very bedrock of all successful education.” Teachers who believe in their students’ abilities demonstrate that they care by placing the learners at the center of the educational process. With this focus on caring foremost, teachers engage students actively in the learning process. This engagement is essential for learning to be fun, meaningful, and enduring. The caring teacher continually reflects on and refines his or her instructional approaches to ensure that the needs of each student are met.
