Teachers must strive to be updated in their professional knowledge and apply their knowledge to practice. They must understand and reflect on student development, curriculum, pedagogy, ethical and legal standards, research and policies to guide their judgment in practice. (OCT, 2021, Standards of Practice).
As a teacher I:
ensure that I continuously seeking out new knowledge in order to improve my practice and grow as a learner and teacher.
will always support a welcoming environment that is suitable for all students.
will ensure that I always include current and real world information into appropriate lessons, activities, and classroom discussions.
will constantly write up a reflection on my own teaching methods and make a contentious effort to improve on my practice.
