We need committed teachers, principals, says DepEd director
CARIGARA, Leyte—As the school year opened, Dr. Luisa Bautista-Yu, regional director of the Department of Education (DepEd)-8 reminded all teachers and principals in the region to be more committed in their respective positions for the learners to achieve quality education.
Director Yu, who was here as guest speaker during the recently held Regional Division-Based Fora on SPG, SSG and PTA Universal Program Implementation, also asked the participants to work hand in hand with DepEd so that it will attain its objective which is to develop highly motivated and globally-competitive students.
The gathering was attended by around 220 participants comprised of school heads, student leaders and parents-teachers officials from Leyte division Area II.
It’s focus was for the various stakeholders in the school to have a uniform issuance of policies governing supreme pupil government, supreme student government and PTA officials.
“Our problem lies in the resources that support our DepEd projects. Sometimes the PTA as an organization is not cooperating with the SSG or with other stakeholders in the school, yet with this gathering we hope we will be collaborating with each other to attain our objectives.We should always be in good terms.”
“We want quality of life, based on quality education from quality teachers with quality relationships from PTA officials,”she said.
Meanwhile, Dir. Yu has called on the teachers and principals to be more creative on their undertakings.
She said if teachers and principals are more creative their students will become more motivated to complete their studies.
“We need passionate, committed teachers and school administrators.Teachers should enjoy teaching, and principals should render technical assistance to their teachers. And there should be no excuses.”
“Teaching is not a joke. It is a commitment. It is a passion to teach and because every child is created by God we should not choose our students ,” Yu said.
Yu then emphasized on the importance of maintaining the credibility for both teachers and school heads so that the public will not lose faith on the government, specifically the DepEd. (RONALD O. REYES)
