I have received and read the Professional Education Unit’s (PEU) Policy on the Assessment of Professional Dispositions for Teacher Education Candidates and I understand, and agree to, the following
Main Page Content
- Professional dispositions are the attitudes, values and beliefs demonstrated through
both verbal and non-verbal behaviors as educators interact with students, families,
colleagues, and communities. Positive dispositions support student learning and development.
The six key dispositions important to my development as an educational professional
- Positive Outlook
- My professional dispositions will be assessed on a regular basis as a candidate within the PEU.
- In addition to the regular assessment, any faculty member, member of the professional staff within the PEU, or school-based professional may submit a written dispositional report if I engage in behaviors deemed inappropriate and unacceptable to the teaching profession.
- At the discretion of either a department-based committee or a PEU Committee, I may be assigned additional remedial work or I may be dismissed from the teacher education program if I have multiple assessments or reports of unprofessional behavior or if I engage in a single, more egregious behavior (including, but not limited to, behaviors that place the physical or psychological health and safety of children or adolescents at risk).
- I may appeal any evaluation or report that judges my behavior to be unprofessional and I have certain rights pertaining to processes associated with the assessment of dispositions and my status within the PEU.
