Professional Dispositions

A professional disposition is the foundation for a career in teaching. A teacher does much more than distribute information to students. They communicate with community members (including parents and students), serve as role models, and handle sensitive information (such as grades and Individualized Education Plans). A teacher must be 100% professional at all times, no matter what. To do so, a teacher will act ethically, work within the school community to constantly seek improvement and resolve issues, work indovidually to improve his or her skill, and collaborate and cooperate with his or her colleagues.

  • Demonstrates potential for teacher leadership.
