my name is Michelle good man and I serve as the associate deans the licensure programs at liberty University school of education and I have been asked to talk to you today for few minutes on professionalism this one is very near and dear to my heart because I feel that is educators you really have to display display the utmost professionalism because you are training them next set of professionals in the future so on and to talk a few minutes about questions that I was given to you answer to help you understand better what is expected of you when you’re in the field the 1st question that I was asked to talk to about was while completing field experiences how important is it to display professional behaviors and the 1st thing that I thought of when I read this question is it’s not important as critical critic luitye a better where the important here some reasons the 1st thing is that you are practicing to be a future professional now is the time for you to practice that is behaviors look at others that are in the field how they dress how did they acted meetings find some people that you really feel are good leaders in your building and watch how they interact with others your field experience can open some doors for you if I administrators and people see you performing in a professional manner they see that you’re consistent in what you do that’s probably in open some future doors for you and the opposit I would say of that is if you are not professional and that field experience it will close doors for you I feel like in the age that we live in right now the information technology moves so quickly if there something that you do that is unprofessional it will quickly be spun around about something even your dead we 8 me CM news media all the time about teachers and other professionals acting and unprofessional ways and that hits the airways very quickly so you might be closing doors for yourself in the future if you don’t take seriously your field experience in your internship now when you’re out there the last thing I’d like to say is when you are representing liberty University you are also representing Christ and you may sometimes be the only Bible that people really read is you and your actions and how you respond to others and how you respond to situations your integrity all of those characters know that cosplay really reflect L you they reflect cries they reflect obviously you so make sure that you always stop and think the how should I respond in the situation what would Christ do that’s going to be your best way to make sure that you stay professional in all situations the next question that I was told to respond to was what are behaviors that supervising teachers administrators students and parents should see in you will I could you know I could write-up a long list of those but I’ve tried to keep them down so about 10 or so though I’ll read though 3 those quickly and by the way we call these dispositions in the school of education would be all here the buzzword dispositions and I’ve written down some of these if you go to the website the add on the adviseing guy you’ll find these dispositions and 1 of them is professionalism in the indicators that go with that here are some of the things that we want to see in you follow through with commitments if you say you’re going to do something do it take responsibility for things complete your task on time if you say if you’re a fury report cards are due on Wednesday do we haven’t done on Tuesday said that there well I had a time of what’s on due on Wednesday make sure that you get there every day that you are there promptly if you’re supposed to be there at 8 o’clock be there at 8 o’clock don’t be there in 805 and fact the best thing would be there to be there at 7:50 few supposed to be there 8 o’clock or even earlier if you need to get in and plan and get materials ready for
