Catholic Identity and Expectations for Teachers

Teachers in Catholic schools share the very mission of the Church to teach and sanctify, not only by professional instruction in the classroom or supporting home education parents, but by personal commitment to the truths and moral guidelines given by Christ. The excellence of a school depends to a very large measure on the quality of the teachers on its staff.

In assisting teachers to meet their commitment to the students, parents, the community, and the profession, the following expectations are developed:

  • Catholic staff members are expected to model a faithful Catholic life which includes participation in the Sacraments and striving to live in harmony with Gospel teaching as interpreted by the Church.
  • All staff members are expected to follow, both in and out of school, lifestyle and deportment in harmony with Catholic teaching and principles.
  • Catholic educators, have a special responsibility to encourage each student to achieve his/her maximum potential as they work to stimulate the spirit of inquiry, the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, and the thoughtful formulation of worthy goals.
  • Catholic teachers, help students see the relevance of a Christian value system in their daily lives.
  • In his/her relationship with the students, the teacher shows concern, love, and respect for each student called by God to an uniqueness that is the dignity of each individual.
  • In his/her relationship with the other staff members, the teacher shows care and concern for their total welfare, and their growth as persons and as a Catholic Christians.
  • In his/her relationship with the parents of the students, the teacher recognizes that the parents are the primary educators of their children and that the school and teacher are partners with the parents in this important undertaking.
  • As Catholic school educators, teachers strive to create a Christian environment which promotes sound moral and professional judgment. Through their spirit of joy and enthusiasm, teachers encourage others to join them in their apostolate of teaching in a Catholic school.

In brief, if Catholic schools are to attain the aims and objectives of Catholic education, it is not enough that teachers be academically well qualified, nor is it enough that they know the right things to say about the Catholic faith to the students. First and foremost, teachers must be and must live what they teach.
