Celebrating National Teachers’ Month and World Teachers’ Day


My father once told me that I had already paid my debt to society when I decided to work as a Kindergarten teacher immediately after my college graduation. And even after working several years here at Gadgets Magazine, the type of fulfillment of having been a part of my students’ lives, imparting knowledge and skills to them (and vice versa), remains overwhelming beyond comparison.

Now you can honor your favorite teacher as Synergeia Foundation invites both children and adults alike to participate in a community walk to honor all teachers entitled This One’s For You to be held on October 1, 2011 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) starting at 1:00 p.m.

Activities include arts and crafts, Jeepney ni Jan-Jan games, computer games, photo booths, storytelling, costumes, book and story readings, among other events. These will be followed by a community walk from CCP Eskinita to Folk Arts, PICC, Star City, CCP Ramp and back to CCP Eskinita, with the accompaniment of Escola de Samba. A special program, as well as raffle draws and awarding of prizes for teachers will highlight the day’s dedication.
