With all the seemingly 'unrewarding' aspects of teaching, why do people still choose teaching as their profession? The paper shows how Robert L. Fried answers this question in his book, "The Passionate Teacher", where he identifies passion as the vital element that teachers must possess upon deciding that they want to choose teaching as their profession. The paper explains how, in the book, Fried explains the important guidelines that teachers must remember in order to ensure that their teaching is appropriate to the kind of students that they teach.

From the Paper:

"Thus, passion answers the question presented earlier, that is, why do people choose to teach as their profession despite its financial and emotional disadvantages. Passion plays a vital role in motivating people who are ready to help the younger generation not only in the transmission of knowledge, but also in communicating and sharing knowledge between the teachers and students. Passion ensures an individual to do his/her work well, satisfying not only the self but other people, especially the students, as well."
