What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

It is my opinion that if a person is to enjoy and be successful at their employment then they need to be motivated.  As an instructor, I know that I owe it to my students and myself to be motivated and to do the best job I can.

Of course, this is my opinion and I will be interested to see what others share.

Motivation is very helpful but teachers can foster motivation in students - if every teacher waited for their students to come to school already motivated, they'd be waiting a long time. I try to motivate my students with good lesson planning that intrigues them and helps them to be excited about what we're learning.
