Professional Credo

Develop a professional credo that presents your professional position. Incorporate at least five values that  have emerged during this unit as being important to you as an educator and include references to these values  from your reading. Indicate what your beliefs are about each value, what would be the practical  manifestations of these beliefs (i.e. what would/would not be seen, heard or experienced if it was present).
Also indicate what kind of evidence would demonstrate that this value was being lived out in your school or  educational organisation.
The five values to incorporate are:
1. Respect
2. Compassion
3. Integrity
4. Professionalism
5. Understanding
