"Being on the PCC has strengthened my professionalism since I often view things through a lens of ethics towards the profession. I value the work on the PCC as I believe it strengthens the profession by keeping our standards and expectations high for our members. Staff members and colleagues look to me for advice due to the knowledge and experience gained from the work on the PCC."
- Len Lorenz, Registered Teacher, PCC Member
“Serving on the Professional Conduct Committee or Discipline Committee provides a more concrete and in-depth understanding about what is explicitly required of teachers in terms of conduct and competence, and the disciplinary measures that can be applied when these are not properly attended to. Because teaching is a profession requiring of its members to exhibit professional behaviour at all times, anyone wanting to expand their ethical knowledge should consider sitting on one of the SPTRB’s committees. Doing so will increase your legislative knowledge of the Registered Teachers Act/SPTRB Bylaws that we as Saskatchewan Teachers are expected to abide by. Committee work will also provide many opportunities to reflect and reevaluate your own behaviour, give unexpected guidance when facing inevitable professional dilemmas and lead to making better daily professional decisions overall.”
Natasha Cochran, Registered Teacher, PCC Member
"Serving on the PCC has been such a huge asset in my own personal growth both as an educator and as an administrator. It has given me the opportunity to reflect on the profession in a more holistic way, especially in the context of the public trust."
Dan Mielke, Registered Teacher, PCC Member
