What does it mean to be a teacher?
Professional standards mirror the many things that teachers do.
Referring to and reflecting on the standards can help to guide your practice - inspiring young people and helping them achieve their potential.
Five years after the Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession and the Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession were first developed, the Ontario College of Teachers is reviewing them to ensure that they accurately describe "what it means to be a teacher in Ontario."
The College invites you to participate in the review of the standards by completing a short questionnaire, available on the College web site.
By sharing your experience in relation to the standards you help the College to clearly describe the knowledge, values and skills reflected in our everyday practice.
