  • are competent decision makers;
  • are skilled in planning, implementing, and evaluating learning experience for students;
  • view decision making as a reflective process;
  • understand and are committed to the moral dimensions of teaching;
  • select and apply technology appropriately;
  • accept the view that professional growth and development is an on-going, never-ending process.
