A WOW for Teachers!


To my fellow teachers, may this day be a reminder for us that we have answered to the calling that God has given to us to fulfill. To touch children's lives is to touch their future. We are called to this noble profession to make the future leaders of tomorrow.

We have been given this task to mold the children to be in the image and likeness of God. And so we have to do our best to make sure that we guide them to the path, the way that was given to them by God.

It is not easy to be a teacher. It entails patience, courage, wisdom, and strength. Also, knowledge, talent, and skill. To complete the package.... passion. Passion to grow, persevere, to teach, and to learn more.

Teachers are the epitome of everything a person should be. That is why, we need to be like the greatest teacher of all, who has defined the meaning of teaching, and has lived it... Jesus Christ.

And so let us always draw inspiration from Him.... then be inspired and learn from others whom He have chosen as well.

So here's to the noble teachers around the world!

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher inspires. The great teacher inspires." -William Arthur Ward
