Due to the number of incidents being reported each year, EPSB is asking that this
be reviewed with all certified staff at the beginning of school. Copies have been
provided to each certified employee (small green “bookmark” looking informational
flier). EPSB is also willing to come and schedule an "ethics seminar". If you want
more information about this, I will contact Alicia A. Sneed at 502 564 4606. Her
information is interesting and informative.
Form on back of TC-2 to renew certificate that explains what is expected is included
in your staff handbook
If you question the ethics of an action, don’t do it.
If you are arrested, this must be reported to EPSB. They will follow-up to see if
you’re guilty, etc.

Guiding Quote

“I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive
element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that
creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the
weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to
make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of
torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or
humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is whether a crisis will
be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or
dehumanized.”
-Haim Ginott
