How can teachers develop passion in the classroom?

Most people won't argue with the statement that our current education system's primary goals are not to ignite/support educators' passions. With standardized testing, budget cuts, Race to the Top and on and on, how do educators hold onto the passion of teaching?

Fifth-grade teacher Derrall Garrison says he has a passion for classroom technology and developing 21st-century skills in his students. In this blog post, he posts a Twitter discussion among educators about what passion is and how best to create passion among teachers. "I believe passion comes from both the teacher and students -- learning is shared [and] valued together," one participant wrote.
