An Additional Word Regarding "The Teacher as a Service Professional"
Myers, Donald A.
Action in Teacher Education, v30 n1 p26-27 Spr 2008
In this article the author responds briefly to the three authors who reviewed his manuscript. Furthermore, he states that the service model that he proposed was not a compromise or a lesser goal for teachers than professional status; it was a more accurate and uplifting goal. The teacher as a service professional could have widespread support among teachers; it could be more inclusive; and it could be more acceptable and understandable to local boards of education, parents, and students. Perhaps most important, as he wrote in his concluding remarks, it would model the type of behavior that is natural to and consistent with what teachers desire in themselves and their students.
