As we celebrate World Teachers’ Day, I remember the week of August 31 – September 3, 2010, when 10 Filipino teachers, who were simply doing their best to love their students more and more, were recognized by the President of the Philippines (Aug. 31),
the Philippine Senate (Aug.31),
the House of Representatives (Sep. 1),
and, of course, the Metrobank Foundation and the Metrobank Group (Sep. 3).
I know that if it weren’t for the awesome transforming power of God’s love, I wouldn’t be the person I have learned, in the light of God’s grace, to actually love and be proud of.
Happy Teachers’ Day!
