Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession Statements

The purpose of Tyndale's BEd program is to develop Teacher Candidates who embody the Ontario College of Teachers' five essential Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession. These practices are to be demonstrated by teachers who wish to be certified in Ontario.

Choose two of the five Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession. For each standard, write a 500-word reflective self-evaluation statement indicating your related skills, abilities, and attitudes, and how you are developing towards achieving the qualities represented by that standard. In these two statements you may wish to touch on the following areas: 

  • why you want to be a teacher
  • the strengths you have that will serve you well in the profession
  • the aspects of education to which you are most attracted
  • the biases you hold
  • a description of specific experiences you have had that have prepared you for the teaching profession

Worldview Statement

Provide one typewritten statement of up to 500 words describing your worldview and the resulting implications for education, teaching, and learning.

A worldview is a person's fundamental perspective on life and living. It answers the deeper questions of life, such as "Why is there a universe?” and “What is the meaning of life?”.  A person's worldview is a basic framework, which guides one's thoughts day by day and guides one's actions in all areas of life. It can be thought of as a life philosophy. As such, one's worldview will influence what one considers to be the purpose of education, the approach to teaching and learning and therefore, the reason one may choose to attend a Christian university.
