Teachers are dedicated in their care and commitment to students; they treat students with equity and respect and are constantly aware of the factors that may influence student learning (OCT, 2021, Standards of Practice).

As a teacher I:

  • adhere to the ethical standards of care, respect, trust, and integrity (OTC, 2021, Ethical Standards) 

  • will ensure that I promote inclusivity, differentiated learning, and universal design for learning within my classroom so that all my students can be successful.

  • am dedicated to providing a learning environment where students feel safe to express themselves.

  • will be mindful of the unique cultures, genders, race, and religion of all my students to provide an inclusive environment where by everyone can grow.

  • will maintain my professionalism both inside and outside of the classroom, respecting everyone around me, students, staff, parents and the community.
