Second, is the ability to influence others, and the others include parents, spouses and other teachers, not just pupils.

Intrinsic Motivation:

motivation based on taking pleasure in an activity rather working towards an external reward.
Thompson (1998) says, “The most powerful weapon available to secondary teachers who want to foster a favorable learning climate is a positive relationship with our students” (p. 6).
Research on teacher expectations and student achievement has shown that expectations have a dramatic impact on student academic performance (Kerman, Kimball, &
Martin, 1980).
Frustration and stress, which are inevitable in the teaching profession, are the great enemies of our best intentions.

Frustration can have a devastating effect on teacher-student relationships.

As an educator, the question is not
if you will become frustrated or stressed, but when and how you will deal with it.
