Daily, teachers step foot inside their classrooms with the intentions of making a difference in their students' lives by demonstrating care. Depending on a teacher's individual style, care may be demonstrated in multiple ways. The author explores four distinctive themes of a caring teacher. These are: (1) student-oriented; (2) work-oriented; (3) engaging students; and (4) active. The author discusses each of the four themes in terms of its characteristics.
