  • We have a moral commitment to make a positive difference in our students’ lives.
  • We go the extra mile for students who struggle the most.

  • We persist despite all obstacles.
  • We know our work is as professionally challenging as medicine, architecture and law.
  • We develop our own and own colleagues’ professional capital continuously, over the course of the career.
  • We inquire into our practice so we can improve it.
  • We respect knowledge, wisdom and evidence as a basis for our work.
  • We value being a collaborative profession. We help our colleagues, we learn from them, and we share collective responsibility with them for all students’ success
  • We treat parents as partners because they are their children’s first educators.
  • We are champions and defenders of our profession in private and in public.
  • We support and challenge our leaders to do the right thing for our students

We are good, we do good, and we’re here for good. That’s what makes us teachers.
