In the last quarter of century, the educative investigation and the pedagogical documents speak of educational effectiveness, educative resources, evaluation, didactic technology, results, efficiency, directed achievement, success…. but it is almost impossible to find references to feelings, emotions and affections. Expressions such as teacher’s vocation, passion or enthusiasm for education, love to students (do not say compassion) were prohibited as sentimentalities unknown to the professionalism of teachers, the pedagogical science and, of course, to the enterprise orientation, so recently in fashion.
