Professional Code of Ethics for Teachers

Written by
Teachers help students learn the academic basics, but they also teach valuable life lessons by setting a positive example. As role models, teachers must follow a professional code of ethics. This ensures that students receive a fair, honest and uncompromising education. A professional code of ethics outlines teachers' main responsibilities to their students and defines their role in students' lives. Above all, teachers must demonstrate integrity, impartiality and ethical behavior in the classroom  and in their conduct with parents and coworkers.
Fundamental to teacher and student success is the teacher's ability to communicate effectively with students, parents and colleagues. Teachers must have good communication skills to help their students achieve academic success. Teachers also need good communication skills to further their careers in education. Without good communication skills, teachers disable the learning process as well as their own career mobility.
A teaching career is highly challenging, intellectually demanding and emotionally rewarding. There are a number of factors that can make working as a teacher quite draining, however, and even the most idealistic and energetic teachers often find their enthusiasm dampened by a variety of unpleasant factors involved in working as a teacher in both public and private schools.
