Professional dispositions

The Department of Education at Medaille College prepares students to enter the world of teaching birth through grade twelve. We believe that a major component of professional teacher education (both in Medaille College classrooms and in P-12 schools) includes preparing students to fulfill professional habits of conduct. As part of the learning and preparation processes, students must understand and engage in professional behaviors that adhere to both policy and guiding principles required in private and public schools and community agencies. The development of values such as commitment, responsible behavior, professional communication/collaboration, confidentiality, and integrity/honesty are essential for sustained employment within the professional workforce. Prospective educators are expected to view and assume these professional dispositions as a crucial component of their academic training.
The Professional Dispositions aligned with Medaille College and the Department of Education provide a framework for these professional behaviors. Instructors and staff will demonstrate and work with our students to assure that they understand and are able to demonstrate the dispositions in every class and learning experience. When interacting with administrators, professors, teachers, peers and students (while on all Medaille campuses and during field experiences), teacher candidates must exhibit their professional commitment to becoming an excellent teacher through engagement, words, and actions. Students will sign an acknowledgment of these professional dispositions upon entrance to their program.
