This paper investigates the motivational power of children to change teachers' beliefs about teaching. Weekly and summary reflections written by 18 preservice teachers served as data sources. Preservice teachers were learning from the children what they expect their teachers to know, to do, and to be, and in consequence of the face-to-face encounters with children, teachers were likely to establish and change their beliefs about children and how to teach. Teacher educators may encourage this learning by asking preservice teachers, during and after their work in classrooms, to respond to the questions: 'As I related to the children, what did they require from me?', and 'How did I respond to these demands?'. The work of Emmanuel Levinas on the relationship in the face-to-face encounter between people provided an interpretive framework for evaluating responses to these questions.
