Days for Girls International Is Coming to our School

Macasandig National High School, The school where I belong, is privileged enough to be one of the recipient of the "Days for Girls" kit. I just learned about this organization's existence today. The said kit contain items for feminine hygiene and one of their advocacy is the giving of washable sanitary pads. Well, haven't tried this one before. But we are so glad that the Days for Girls International was able to come here in the Philippines, and in our city, and in our school! They will be coming on the 20th of October, that's Friday! For sure all of our female students would be excited for this. They will also be giving under wears! And what's more exciting of this event is that, it will be graced by no less that the Miss Earth beauties!

I'll keep you posted once the event will be done. I just hope I could document the whole event!

My thanks to the city government, DepEd Region X, DepEd CDO Division, MinPRA, Rotary Club of Burwood (the main sponsor, I guess) and the Miss Earth Organization!

Kudos!

A Teacher's Creed

Just in case, my fellow teachers, we forgot why do we became a teacher in the first place, let's have a review to the Teacher's Creed: 


Image result for my teacher, my hero
I believe I have been called by God to teach.
I believe in children...young and old...black and white...rich and poor....each in need of learning.
I believe in blackboards, chalk dust, textbooks, and computers for each has a part in imparting knowledge.
I believe the love I give to my students will someday be reflected in their lives.
I believe the gift of teaching is not measured simply by marks, enrollment, or the end of the school year.
It is in the witness I give and the fullness of the life lived by those I teach.
I believe I have the power to lead those in need of learning to the threshold of their own minds.
I believe in my giftedness to use each of the tools available no matter how new or old..for the light of knowledge in the eyes of another is my goal.
I believe teaching is more than tests, diplomas, paperwork, and fundraising.
It is the values I breathe daily into another...slowly.
It is in the faith I share in Jesus...ever changing and growing...never ending.
I believe my success today goes unnoticed...until those I teach and touch can stand alone and say "in my life I have learned..."
I believe if I have taught and touched one person...in God's name...I have used my gift to me justly..and can humbly say...
I believe in teaching....
I AM A TEACHER!!

To All The Teachers In the World

Nobody is perfect. Even teachers with the noblest profession bound to commit mistakes. But regardless of that blatant fact, teacher plays a vital role in the development of every individual. Teachers molded us to become the person that we should be. They are our second parent. They taught us valuable lessons in life, they opened our eyes to the realities in the world, some teachers inspired us, others also discouraged us for some reasons. But nevertheless, a teacher will leave a footprints in our heart. 

You will never knew what it takes to be a teacher until you become one. When I had this profession more than a decade ago, I was motivated to do my best because when I was still a student, I do have a bunch of very competent teachers who inspired me a lot. But mind you, being a teacher is not as easy as teaching the A-B-C. It requires lots and lots of patience. It is my personality who easily got discouraged, but this profession taught me how to extend my patience more than I could imagine. Every school semester/year, you'll be facing different students coming from all walks of life. I have experienced crying in desperation, walking out from my class, losing my temper but the following morning- you need to face the same group of students who caused you so much headache and frustrations. But the good part there is that, these group of students have their way of making it up to you. They can be the cause of your headache but sweet at the same time. Indeed, the life of a teacher is so colorful.

I do have great respect to all the teachers in the world. Especially those who really did their job accordingly. But my heart sank for those teachers who somehow have lost their profession because of some problems and complications of their own doing. I pity those teachers who were imprisoned for misconduct and other violations. Maybe they were just lost in track but I knew they have learned their lesson well, though they learned it the hard way.



SO, to all the teachers in the world, especially my former teachers from primary to tertiary level_ THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Thank God September Is Over

It's my birth month. Yes. But, for this year, the month of September is very toxic for me. I invest much of my time, effort and health on things that really consumed all  my energy, invaded my personal time, and made my whole month a total mess. In return, this month ends with a hard cough, severe head and body ache. What could I ask for more?

On the brighter side, this month, however, gave me the opportunity to renew my commitment at church. It's been awhile that I haven't gone to church regularly. And I was able to attend a small Bible Study group just in time before I will completely lost my sanity (exaggeration though). Indeed, God will never leave me nor forsake me because He will keep on using other people to reach me out when I almost forget who I am for Him in the first place. (I'm God's precious daughter)

I could only hope that this month of October will be a whole lot kinder to me (Oh please!)
