Ask teachers why they have pursued a career in education and they are likely to mention a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of children or suggest that teaching was a calling not just a job. Research shows that in addition to these reasons, teachers also indicated that they joined the academic ranks to share a deep interest in a particular subject area, to work with students of different backgrounds and abilities, or to engage students in creative ways. For these reasons, and many more, Guardians of the Next Generation: Igniting the Passion for High Quality Teaching, addresses the very heart of what helps teachers to make learning meaningful to children.
