Intrigued by the notion that effective teaching is as much about relationship as it is about ‘technical’ proficiency, the author examines the values of teachers that inform classroom relationships, and poses the question as to whether there are particular teacher values that are necessary for quality values education. This question is addressed by focusing on the teaching strategies involved in the major approaches to values education, and by deducing the teacher values necessary for effective teaching. The implications for the pedagogy of teacher education are briefly discussed.
