Technology Advantages/ Disadvantages
The use of technology in the classroom opens up many areas of learning and advancement. The vast list of devices and applications that can be utilized in a classroom expands the learning spectrum, improves class participation, is interesting, and motivates students to learn.
Disadvantages of technology in the classroom can be that it can be distracting, sometimes difficult to manage or utilize, and its use must be monitored.

Professional Responsibilities
*Teachers have a responsibility to uphold certain standards due to their profession. Teachers should provide the best guidance and instruction they can by teaching as well as they can. They must give proper instruction in the pursuit of students gaining the proper knowledge they need to obtain.
*Teachers have a professional responsibility to stay current with new and changing educational content in order to move forward and be effective in their teachings.
*Teachers should do no harm to those they teach, and they have the responsibility of protecting their students and looking out for their well-being.
*Teachers should be respectful of others regardless of race, sex, color, creed, sexual preference, religion, socioeconomic status, or any factor that can make anyone different. Respect the many differences amongst others, and provide proper guidance to all students without prejudice. *School policies, rules and regulations must be upheld by responsible professional teachers. Those who follow the rules properly can guide others to do the same.
All of these aspects are professional responsibilities of teachers and should be adhered to. They are all of equal importance, but there must be a special focus on continuing to grow in the practices of teaching because there is always something new a teacher can learn.

Continuous Professional Development
Teachers have to stay current with new methods and new technology that is often introduced into education. Students deserve to receive a high quality education, and this is only possible if their teachers are properly trained and have the knowledge to successfully teach all aspects of the curriculum correctly. In order to accomplish this development, teachers can attend workshops and seminars. They can join organizations that collaborate and work together to stay up-to-date with changes and advancements in education. Online training courses or college courses are other options teachers can utilize to stay current and better develop their teaching skills.
1. Teachers are committed to students and their learning: Dedicated to making knowledge accessible to all students, act on the belief all students can learn, treat students equitably, recognize differences, adjust practices according to observation and knowledge of students' skills, knowledge, and circumstances
2. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students: Teachers have a rich understanding of the subjects they teach, know how to apply subjects to real-world settings, develop critical and analytical capacities of their students
3. Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning: Teachers create, and enrich instructional settings to keep their student's interested, they engage students and adults to assist their teaching, they are aware of ineffectual and damaging practices
4. Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience: They are models and exemplify virtues they want to inspire in students, reason and take many perspectives in creativity, take risks, and adopt experimental and problem solving orientation
5. Teachers are members of learning communities: They contribute to the effectiveness of the school by working collaboratively with others on instructional policy and curriculum and staff development, evaluate school progress and the allocation of school resources, they are knowledgeable of specialized school and community resources for students' benefit
