NAGA CITY --- On joint and collective motion, the members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod here on Tuesday honored and expressed their gratitude to all the teachers in public and private schools, colleges, and universities in the city.
The commendatory remarks, which were articulated in a resolution sponsored by City Councilor Joselito SA Del Rosario, were made to express their admiration to educators in whose honor the World Teachers Day was celebrated yesterday, October 3.
“It is indeed a golden opportunity for us to let our teachers feel that they are loved and respected for performing their noble task to be of help in shaping the future of the coming generation,” says Del Rosario.
In one of the provisions of the resolution he wrote, Del Rosario said: “just as our parents are responsible for giving us love and a good way of living, our beloved teachers are responsible for ensuring us [our] bright and successful future.”
He even mentioned about the hardworking teachers in the EDUCARE who travel on foot in far-flung sitios of Barangay Panicuason and other rural areas in the city to teach and coach Nagueño children to excel in mathematics, science, sports and other areas of competition locally and internationally.
“They even brave the blistering heat of the sun and the rain in going to and from their workstations just to teach,” Del Rosario said referring to all the EDUCARE teachers and those working in public and private elementary, high school, senior high school, and tertiary educational institutions in this city.
The resolution, according to the city councilor, aims to congratulate and commend all the teachers and faculty members for the hardwork and dedication that ensure every one of their continued support to promote quality education in the city.
The resolution also commends the Naga City Division of the Department of Education headed by Supt. William Gando and all the different public schools division supervisors in the city, the City Social Welfare and Development Office headed by Annabel Vargas and the Early Childhood Care and Development headed by Elsie Romano.
The commendation was presented “for unselfishly and tirelessly leading the teachers to effectively do their tasks under their able leadership and supervision.”
