Pedagogical Love and Good Teacherhood
The aim of the article is to discuss the concept of pedagogical love and its connections to teaching and learning from various perspectives, as well as to illustrate the connection of pedagogical love to other forms of love. Pedagogical love is a specific teaching attitude and concretely demonstrates that action in the teaching profession, with pedagogical love as the core, consists of trust in pupils’ learning capacities and the desire to help pupils improve their abilities and talents. However, pedagogical love is not the only or easy solution to meeting different pupils’ needs and various learning problems.
