"Being a Teacher": Emotions and Optimal Experience while Teaching Gifted Children.
Coleman, Laurence J.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v38 n3 p146-52 Sum 1994
The emotional experience of one teacher was studied in depth using phenomenological interviews and participant observation. The teacher experienced a variety of emotions generated when the instructional dynamics of the lesson were congruent or incongruent with his professional practical knowledge, and a compelling emotional state of "being a teacher" incorporated many of his feelings repeatedly.
