The workforce needs to have a diverse in their roles as a teacher. The families need to be involved in the development of their child. The should take part in the child’s professional development. The professional development of children should prove their knowledge and the skills in their learning development. Providers are to organize their place for the child’s learning experience and that focuses on any problems in the place. The questions who, what, and how organizes the framework in the plan and the evaluating of the professional development. The focus of the who, what, and how is the framework of professionalism (Inclusion., 2008). This is to make Early Childhood Education and this is to help educators to have the skills, knowledge, and dispositions to work closely to the practitioners to help with improvements in classrooms and to make it more better with the children with disabilities and the families (Inclusion., 2008). The point that I had new insight from is the who because it states that most of the consultants, and the technical providers had a bachelor’s or a Master’s and the experience in teaching children in ECE and that was in a state wide survey. This goes to show us that you need a degree of some kind to work with children, and to be in a teaching position. I see that is why I cannot be in the position as a teacher till I get a

I am a first year teacher and have very little experience and I work in title 1, high poverty school. This year I have implemented equitable chactersitics of creating a safe place for my students, expectations for respect in my classroom, collaborating with other skilled educators, participating in advanced education coursework and attending professional development. I know these are equitable characteristics because students are more likely to succeed in a setting where they will feel safe and respected by others. This is important for all students, but can be especially important for students in low-income families that may have one or more ACES that they must cope with every day at school. Next, collaborating with more skilled teachers and coaches helps me diagnose problems and help reach struggling students. Last participating in professional development and working on my master’s degree helps me keep up to date in what is going on in education and helps me in constant state of learning, growing and improving my
The Conceptual Framework created for the SUNY Cortland teacher candidates is important for many reasons. It was important for the campus to create a “College-wide shared vision for teacher education” (CF 3) as they prepared for their NCATE accreditation. The college wanted to make sure that the framework formed a true representation of their program goals, identity, and beliefs. This conceptual framework is important for the individual candidate because it is used to guide, and provide “a sound foundation for assessment”(CF 7). As stated on page 11 of the framework, “SUNY Cortland is dedicated to developing candidates’ knowledge, integrity, professional standards and commitment to their future students and school community”. This is very important as every piece of the statement can go hand-in-hand with the NAEYC Standards. The Conceptual Framework is also important for candidates as it sets to build three key components in each individual. These components are personal responsibility, social justice, and global understanding. What is also unique about the Conceptual Framework is that it is seen as a “living document”, meaning that it has the ability to be changed whenever change is needed, and whenever we uncover new discoveries of early childhood development. My intention in writing this paper is to gain a better understanding of what is expected from me as a candidate in a SUNY Cortland education program. I hope that I will be able to take the information that I learn from the Conceptual Framework and use it in my future teaching.
The article, “Diversity in Early Childhood Education,” by Francis Wardle, was enlightening on how early childhood educators need to build a homogenous classroom environment that resembles the family and the community that children reside in. Educators and administrators need to evaluate the classroom environment to incorporate diversity in the classroom so, that young children can feel socially competent about their culture.

Assessing the cultural diversity in our exceptional children’s department is important for several reasons. First, we need look at the referral process and ensure that there isn’t a disproportionate representation of students with culturally diverse backgrounds in special education. Secondly, we need to assess whether the students who are receiving special education services, are doing so using appropriate culturally relevant tools and instructional techniques. Finally, we need to make sure we are communicating appropriately with the parents and other family members of all our
Professional Development Plan Nursing is a profession of caring and respect for human dignity, which is the core value I strive to maintain throughout my career. My primary goal while in school with Walden University is to complete the MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program. Advocacy is the consequence of that respect required of a nurse, and with Walden University mission and vision I am bestowed with the ability to understand healthcare from the patient’s perspective and range of socio-cultural factors that influence their decisions. I have acquired the knowledge to assess how each individual interacts with and relates to others, families, and communities within a consistently changing society. As a nurse and agent of change, it is my responsibility to analyze how their environment positively and negatively affects health and research means that will promote the modification of stressors and develop alternative resources that can be made available to the individual.
Síolta - The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education in Ireland (DES, 2010) requires ECCE settings and practitioners to value all children equally, and to support the development of positive self and group identities. Component 14.3 provides practitioners with reflective “signposts” and practical examples of how to promote diversity and equity for young children and their families. Settings must set forth values and a vision which engages in cultural and diversity awareness, collaborative action with families and the wider community, in a pedagogical culture of action and reflection. A culturally appropriate environment recognises diversity as a core aspect of a child’s identity and actively engages in recognising and valuing difference, challenging bias and promoting equality.
The attitudes, beliefs, and values that teacher candidates hold about diverse learners is a theme present throughout the literature and is strongly correlated to culturally responsive practice. To teach learners from other cultures, we must first understand our own influences, values, beliefs, culture, and biases (Imler, 2009; Kahn et al., 2014; McHatton et al., 2013; Scott & Mumford, 2007; Sobel, Gutierrez, Zion, & Blanchett, 2011; Taylor, 2010). Researchers have developed a variety of interview and survey assessment instruments using qualitative and quantitative methods to determine the attitudes and beliefs that a teacher candidate holds. Kahn, Lindstrom, and Murray (2014) utilized the Professional Beliefs about Diversity Scale (PBADS) in their research with preservice special educators. They found that preservice teachers who exhibited characteristics of culturally competent teachers also noted having relationships with people from cultures that were different than their

As I ponder over my personal professional development experiences as an educator the realization of how one has developed over time is personally satisfying. Educating children especially children with special needs is a challenge within its self. As a teacher it is important that this writer makes a positive influence with students. There are going to be certain ideas that one tries to uphold and other discriminations that one will not allow. Everyone has their own beliefs teachers should do what is necessary not to infringe on others, but show children different way to think so that they have all the information needed to make educated choices. Children are open-minded they have not yet had to deal with or understand the injustices that they will encounter. If children are taught from an early age they will have the ability to succeed especially children with special needs as an educator my main goal is teaching the purpose of public schools, and education reform.

The educational system is plagued by disparities in achievement, the absence of pedagogical reform, and inclusive curricula. When students are deprived of fair and equitable educational opportunities this hinders their ability to flourish and grow into healthy learners.

To be a teacher does not only imply to know the subject to be taught, it also includes being willing to constantly improve oneself integrally, as much as updating the resources and materials one uses in teaching. Reflecting and analyzing over and over again the best way to teach to learn and how to make students to extend what has been learned. The many hours spend in the classroom will never be enough to plan lessons, prepare materials, review pupils tasks and exams, as well, all the administrative requirements one has to cover for whatever institution we work. Besides all this a good teacher, a professional one, will have to find the time to keep preparing to improve oneself.
