Teachers aim for a quality instruction
AVILARDO B. DE LEON, Baguio City

In every enhancement in the curriculum, teachers are the last to implement. We submit ourselves to anything that can contribute to the success of a program.

Though our salaries can hardly compensate our work, we humbly and willingly accept the challenges of the profession. We have contributed and imparted knowledge and expertise to other professions. For instance, an engineer’s foundation is his teachers who taught him how to use numbers and other fundamentals in the profession.

Our curriculum requires adjustments due to various revisions. The K to 12 curriculum provides teachers with the competencies that are supposed to be attained, but the concepts used to achieve these goals and objectives require an in-depth research using several textbooks and other materials. We prepare appropriate teaching devices everyday. Our homes become an extension of our teaching duties because we bring home unfinished plans. If we do not have devices or materials, we buy using our own money or we borrow and photocopy teaching aids just so we will have one.

Despite the inconveniences, we still manage to smile when we meet each other.

Our curriculum keeps undergoing revisions and we need to cope with numerous challenges.

We sacrifice for the benefit of the majority. We love our work and we our willing to accept any challenge that may come our way. The success of the K to 12 lies in the hands of teachers who are implementing the curriculum.
