Professionals: Student-centered educators exhibit character and dispositions expected of professionals embarking on a life-long career. They relate well to diverse populations, communicate effectively, and hold themselves to high ethical standards.  

Leaders: Student-centered educators think critically, mentor others, and encourage teacher voice as they work to create a learning atmosphere that reflects, collaborates, and advocates for the needs of the learning community.  

Scholars: Student-centered educators know and apply current research to improve their instructional practices.  

Practitioners: Student-centered educators reflect, collaborate, implement, integrate, transform, and build learning communities.
