MANILA, Philippines – As the country celebrates National Teachers’ Month, Rappler is leading a Twitter conversation to know more about the heroism of Filipino teachers across the country and abroad.
The conversation will go live on Saturday, September 7, from 3 pm to 4:30 pm. It will be moderated by @rapplerdotcom and @MovePH. Using the hashtag #ThankYouTeacher, tweet us your thank you messages to the mentors you’ve had through the years.
Join us in honoring the daily efforts of our modern-day heroes — from the public school teachers in far-flung areas to the university professors in the city — who are collectively investing in the future by mentoring the next generation.
Who is your primary mentor in life? How did your professors contribute to the person you are today? What is your most vivid memory of your favorite grade school teacher? How did your high school mentors prepare you in choosing a career path?
Let us know by joining the conversation.
Express your thanks to the many Filipino teachers who give their profession a good name, and propose what else government and civil society can do for them.
The National Teachers’ Month is celebrated from September 5 to October 5 every year, as declared by President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aguino III in Proclamation No. 242. – Rappler.com
