In "Crow Lake," the professor becomes fully aware that she is boring her class. Her class, however, is unaware that she knows what they're thinking and is surprised when she changes direction. In the selection "Students," the teacher has analyzed the class and all of their learning techniques. He knows just how each and every student approaches his class and how they think they are being discrete. In both passages, the teacher's years of experience teaching students allow them to become more aware of the students and their intentions than they show.

Often, students with self-regulation issues appear as students that are not trying hard enough to complete a task or defiant toward a task and are trying to get out of a task (McClelland, "Development and Self-Regulation").

With the help of one of my elementary teachers Mrs. Grham I walked out with one of the highest reading EOG scores in the class; something I thought that I would never be capable of doing. It was my freshman and sophomore year of high school when my teacher Mrs. Lewis impacted my life with her substantial amount of knowledge in writing and making me into a better writer and speaker. Without these two teachers dedicating their time and transferring their knowledge tome I would not be where I am; I will never
