“I remember I started out as shy but after one semester in your class, I have gained confidence. Thank you very much sir for unleashing my talent and skill” claimed one fine arts Far Eastern University (FEU) student in a ‘greeting corner post-it’ activity of the World Teacher’s Day celebration at the FEU Plaza.
#ThankYouTamTeachers, sponsored by the Institute of Education Student Council (IESC), FEU Central Student Organization (FEUCSO), Young Educator’s Society in collaboration with the Teacher’s Academy, paid tribute to teachers of the 7 Institutes of FEU.
The event recognized the hard work shown by our teachers. It enabled us to express how thankful we are for having them, said IESC president Maria Stephanie Gana.
“Seeing them smile during the event motivated us to strive harder, aim high and get good grades as a way of paying back for all the sleepless nights they spent in preparing for our lessons”
The highlight of the celebration was a “Post-it” board where students posted messages for their professors. Upon reading one message, a teacher said, “Just a simple thank you is enough, but this event is so grand – it warms my heart”.
“I was extremely happy that the students took time to give thanks to us” said another teacher.
Despite the light drizzle, the event pushed through and came out successful, said Dr. Michelle Acomular, director of Teacher’s Academy. “As a teacher myself, my morale got boosted along with all my co-teachers. It made us feel good about our decision to become teachers, added Dr. Acomular.
The whole-day event started off with a parade participated in by faculty members and students. It continued on with AVP presentations, ‘sabayang pagbigkas’, intermission numbers and flower and gift offerings; and ended with a holy mass celebration to honor all educators around the globe.
“I hope this event will be celebrated annually in our university” said Gana. - FEU
