Teaching in a changing, diverse society has become a more complicated job than ever. Today we live in a world where the social structure has changed, information is increasing dramatically, and technologies are constantly upgraded. Life-long learning is not simply an ideal goal; it is actually a way to survive. When it comes to learning, there is teaching as well. Traditionally teachers stand on the top of social hierarchy because they process knowledge and skills to deliver knowledge. However, the change of our world has also given away teachers’ privilege of processing knowledge. Everyone can be knowledgeable since knowledge has become very accessible. Today the role of a teacher is no longer as same as it was decades ago. At school teachers are challenged academically, professionally, and ethically. In order to have the job done right, teachers need to know exactly what they are expected to do. That is why professional ethics are so important to be followed by teachers.
