    • We have developed capacities to grow and help others grow: we are empowered and we empower.
    • Though there are some restrictions, we are agents of change. However, these restrictions provide us with the drive to move forward because we have to think of alternatives.
    • We have to make responsible decisions because they have a deep effect on learners’ lives and on society as a whole.
    • We have to be careful of our own accountability and reliability as teachers and as members of society and the best way is to engage in career-long learning.
    • As a consequence of the previous aspect, we actually become role models of autonomy for our students.
