“My teacher, my hero” is perhaps one of the clichés heard during the first week of October as the world celebrates the end of Teachers’ Month. Despite the repetition, the saying still stands true. Being a teacher in one of the prestigious universities in the Philippines brings about pressure, too.
Amidst the stress and the level of academic excellence, teachers also undergo many frustrations in reaching the high standards of excellence that is expected from a faculty of the national university. As such, a celebration like Teachers’ Day is a glorious moment to show appreciation to teachers who consistently hone students to think critically and inspire them to reach the zenith of their potential.
