World Teachers’ Day 2010

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),

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!
