College student dating teacher
Students who perceive their relationship with their teacher as positive, warm and close are motivated to be more engaged in school and to improve their academic achievement (Hughes, Cavell, & Jackson, 1999).
Students’ motivation to learn is impacted positively by having a caring and supportive relationship with a teacher (Wentzel, 1998).
Students who perceive that their teachers have high expectations of their academic achievement are more motivated to try to meet those expectations and perform better academically than their peers who perceive low expectations from their teachers (Muller et al., 1999).
Due to the influence of expectations on motivation, expectations can be an important factor on a students’ academic achievement.
High-poverty students often have low academic self-esteem and low confidence in their academic and vocational futures (Wentzel, 2003).Do you guys think it's ever okay to date your high school teacher after graduation, given that the student is a mature 18 year-old and teacher is in 20s or early 30s?I am aware that this is a little weird, but is it immoral or unethical on the teacher's (or student's) part? In addition to positive teacher-student relationships, students’ motivation to learn is another factor that influences social and academic outcomes.A possible reason for the association between academic improvement and positive teacher-student relationships is students’ motivation and desire to learn (Wentzel, 1998).
