A Few Good Teachers

I am who I am today because of my teachers. I thank all of the teachers who contributed to my personal as well as professional growth.

Teachers should be honored. So I applaud Bato Balani Foundation for their advocacy campaign, The Many Faces of the Teacher. Their goal is to uphold the teaching virtues through exemplars who inspire excellence.

Moreover, it recognizes outstanding Filipino teachers who influence and mold the character of future leaders.

Past awardees include Fr. James Reuter, Onofre Pagsanjan, mobile teacher Jenelyn Baylon, Batibot's Feny delos Reyes and the Bernido couple (also Magsaysay awardees).

Cheers to the Filipino teacher!
