Rethinking the role of
educator in formal and non-formal educational context: this is the objective of
the article. In the reflection we remember the Law 205 (c. 594-601) that
regulates the profession. To recognize the value of the educator, we recall the
studies of John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Jacques Maritain, Bogan Suchodolski
and Jerome S. Bruner. The professional, cultural and ethical commitment make it
possible declare the educator as a ‘teacher of cordial virtues’.
