youth and are held by standards of professionalism. In other words, parents should feel good about leaving their children’s education and safety in the teacher’s hands while they are not present. Teachers should give each student the same amount of care despite their race, age, learning level, etc. An ethical person is a good role model who practices good morals, ethics, and professionalism not just at work but in their day-to-day life, as well. The next professional expectation is working with colleagues and others to build ongoing connections with community resources to enhance student learning and well‐being. Students cannot learn their best if they are struggling with outside issues and trauma. If a teacher notices and identifies an issue, they should do everything in their power to remedy it. Attending community events and contacting community resource agencies will allow teachers to build a resource guide for students and their families to foster a flawless learning environment free from external issues. For example, a teacher discovers that a student is struggling with homelessness and have not eaten. The teacher can offer a resource to the student's parent regarding agencies that specialize in low-income families. The teacher can also give the parent a food stamp application or a reference for local food banks so that the family can get something to eat. As the teacher learns new resources, it is best to share them with colleagues because chances are this student is not the only one struggling. Rather than feeling helpless, having community resources will allow teachers to feel helpful.
