My fascination for affective teaching started when I enrolled for a Master’s degree in Education, in 1998. That is when I learned the theoretical aspects of the concept. I was also fortunate to have role models (my teachers at Spicer Memorial College) who were courageous and willing to apply the principles of affective teaching in their own classes. However, my desire to practice affective teaching was only fulfilled when I started lecturing at Mission College. I encourage you to participate in the conversation of this blog to harvest the secrets of becoming a caring teacher. You can also learn more from my book “How To Be A Caring Teacher.” Please remember that I bear witness to the success behind these principles. They come to you as a result of first-hand experience in actual classroom settings. Wanting to become a caring teacher is a matter of choice. This choice, when made on a daily basis, will help internalize the principles of affective teaching and mold the characteristic traits of a teacher. I have made this choice and have vowed to stick to it till the end of my teaching career. How about you?
