Moral and Ethical Framework

As stated in Alberta Education’s Teacher Quality Standard document, teachers who hold a Permanent Professional Certificate must demonstrate that they “understand the legislated, moral and ethical frameworks within which they work” (Ministerial Order #016/97, 1997).

I believe that I demonstrate this through the following:

  • I take the teacher quality standards seriously, and as is evident by this blog, I reflect upon and try to improve my teaching practice on a day to day basis.
  • I understand the legislated, moral and ethical frameworks in which I work. If a situation arises where I am unsure of what course of action to take, I make sure to consult the proper school authorities.
  • I genuinely care about my students, and my actions reflect that.
  • I recognize that teachers have a great deal of responsibility and that we are entrusted with the safety and well being of the students in our care. I do everything I can to ensure that students feel safe and respected as a part of the classroom and school community.
