Abstract

In addressing the public image of the teacher, this study reports on the analysis of 600 discussion entries on Reddit, a social media platform, in which respondents described memories of their best and worst teachers. Results of inductive analyses suggest: (1) a model of teacher, student, and teacher-student relationship for characterizing and reflecting on teachers in teacher education programs; (2) the relevance of social media in contributing to the public image of the teacher in an information technology age, as well as its anonymous and, arguably, more authentic nature; and (3) the need to address gender in teacher memory studies.
