My Teacher My Hero

The Department of Education is spearheading the celebration of the National Teachers’ Month, an advocacy that began in 2008 as an idea by DepEd Secretary Brother Armin Luistro together with Metrobank Foundation, Inc. president Chito Sobrepeña to recognize the contribution of Filipino teachers in shaping the country’s future leaders. It was President Noynoy Aquino who signed Presidential Proclamation 242 declaring the period from Sept. 5 to Oct. 5 of every year as “National Teachers’ Month” (NTM).

A lot of activities have been lined up to celebrate the NTM, with individuals, corporations and organizations mobilized in a multi-sectoral effort across the entire country to create a strong advocacy that “cultivates a Filipino culture that celebrates all teachers’ service and heroism,” the NTM Coordinating Council said.

Teaching is perhaps one of the most underpaid professions but despite the low pay, a lot of teachers never waver in their passion and idealism to mold the minds of our young people. In many parts of the country, teachers walk for hours and use their own resources to buy chalk, etc. just to fulfill their calling. During elections, they serve as board of election inspectors and in the process put their lives at risk. In fact, there have been too many stories about teachers dying just to protect the sanctity of the ballot especially in election hot spots like Maguindanao.

People shouldn’t have to wait for the National Teachers’ Month to say “thank you” to these everyday heroes.

Knowledge is power, as they say! recently read a very interesting opinion regarding infection and its features - but it is better with such concepts do not collide. Although sometimes and to have.. to help to improve your immune system make good use of various herbs, e.g., aloe: Amazing things you can do with aloe vera - isn't it miraculous properties it has, do you agree?

It's really a great idea and a very wise decision to express the respect and recognition to the Teachers. What a difficult job - to teach children. And how often do we forget that owe their teachers that we have become who we are. What do we call teachers? Is it only those who teach us in school? Of course not. Sometimes ordinary people we meet in life, deserve to have the title of Master. For example, look at this 100-year-old man:
Don't you think that it is necessary to learn from him some life lessons?
