Dear Filipino/ Filipina Teachers,

You must become an advocate of what you believe, otherwise you will become a victim of what others want you to believe. - JESSE JACKSON

Dear Filipino/ teachers,

Please take pride in who you are and in those values and beliefs for which you stand. Be proud of your education, work, and personal accomplishments. Don't be afraid of who you are, since you act with courage and compassion. Tell others, and bask in the feeling of being your best.

(by ERUANNIE) If you are:

1. a pinoy/pinay educator in practice and in deed

2. retired or currently teaching and in the field of education

3. an advocate for teaching, school, education, and the like...


...you are invited to join us. Be decisive. You don't allow yourself to become paralized by indecision. Take the initiative. Do it now.

Success may involve many mistakes and disappointments. Let's try anyway. If we hesitate too long, doubts may linger and turn into fears. Yes, we may be rejected. Yes, we may fail. The difference between successful people and others is not whether we make mistakes or even temporarily fail, but how we respond.

Inspiring, being proactive, giving hope, and going that extra mile -- these are the values a nation needs from the leadership of its professional educators.

WE CAN DO IT! PINOY/ PINAY TEACHERS, UNITE!

You are now invited to visit our official website/ Bulletin Board: http://pinoyteachersnetwork.blogspot.com .

Join in our discussions, speak your mind with us. Help us disseminate our existence. Tell everyone about it.

Check out our Bulletin Board, see you there!

**************

From the bottom of our passionate hearts, the Pinoy Teachers Network would like to sincerely thank your kindness for our logos, JONAS DIEGO (creator of Yan ang Pinay logo).

schatzli said...

i recommended your site to a friend.

sisilip lang ako sa teachers site... good luck dito ha! and dont forget to relax

vonjobi said...

join po ako... pero pag nakakahinga na ako... mga next month =)

also, hindi ba pwedeng isang logo na lang? para kasing discriminatory pag yung isa lang ang nakita mo. parang may separate network para sa lalaki at may iba sa babae.

evi said...

Bilib ako sa mga teachers. Bilib din ako sa gumawa nitong logos. Ang galing.

Zarelle said...

nilagay ko na sa page ko ang logo and link ng pinoyteachersnetwork. yey! sana dumami ang members natin.

TEACHER SOL said...

HONEYPOOH, yep, help us spread the word. Sino pa ba ang magtutulungan kundi tayong mga Pinoy, di ba?

SHA, watcha think of our Bulletin Board? Any suggestions for improvement is welcome by the group.

TEACHER SOL said...

VONJOBI, sige lang, anytime welcome any support from you guys! Ako rin di makahinga eh, on training ako sa Baltimore Maryland, national Board Cetification Assessor's training. hay! Di nga makapag-blog hop ngayon. Sakit ngipin, sakt ulo, pero eto still blogging for advocacy and passion -- on education.

EVI, please help us spread the word about our group. Pls tell your friends about us. Thanks *wink*

BabyPink said...

ang mga guro ay mga bayani!:)

watson said...

This is a nice idea Teacher Sol! I actually saw this first on DubaiChronicles (sa comments section). Cheers to the success of the group!

nikki said...

i wish my mom could join your group but she's completely computer illiterate!

more power to your group.

TEACHER SOL said...

PICHAPIE, I like it that you pasted the logo to your blog's sidebar to show membership & support. I will do the same *wink* Nauna pa sakin maglagay ng logo sa sidebar. Help naman mag-moderate ng egroup, on training ako at di maka-blog parati. Just welcome each new member pls.

BABYPINK, "It's too bad that the people who can run the country are busy teaching in their classrooms." Tama ba? Hindi ako ang nagsabi nyan...

TEACHER SOL said...

WATSON, pls help us spread the word about us, we need to be united so we can be stronger, so we can better help the school children back home. Hehe, nakita mo pala ang message ko kay Jeff *wink* sa tagboard ng Dubai Chronicles...

NIKKI, Why can't she? Your mom can still join us, tulungan mo mag-open ng email account at turuan mo mag-check ng emails. Help her naman, kung may time pa sya at kung may time ka pa, hehe. Regards to your mom, saludo ako sa gurong Pilipino!

Hey Teacher Sol,

It's great to see teachers being united like this. I do hope it can also be a tool to be used to teach the less fortunate kids who cannot go to school because of distance ( in our country's rural areas). I dream that teachers like you can reach out to these kids... SOMEDAY!

schatzli said...

i will be emailing you ideas ok
also I will give you a link of an ex teacher...

goodluck talaga.... one day i suggest pay a domain and get the page professionally done...........

am sure marami members ito...

TEACHER SOL said...

ANONYMOUS, thank you for the support. Since I posted this entry in my blog and strated inviting Pinoy Teachers to join the Network, our www.pinoyteachersnetwork@yahoogroups.com, the official egroup has been very busy all day & night. I couldn't keep up welcoming the new members anymore. Thank goodnees there are 7 of us in the core group who can be the moderator for the egroup discussions. I'm already exhausted when I go home after this intensive training as an assessor for the National Board certification. I hope we get more members so we can better help those school children in the remote areas back home who need our help.

SHA, thanks for your positive response and for helping us spread the word about our network. Dumadami na ang members, I'm getting membership requests evryday & membership acceptance. So far so good. I will wait for your email.

nikki said...

she has cataract kasi sa isang eye din (she's just recovering from her operation sa other eye) so she can't see very well. but i'll see what i can do. :-)

goyong said...

Sali ako diyan! Dati rin akong guro ng Araling Panlipunan back in the early eighties bago ako naging isang magbubukid at migranteng pinoy.

tas said...

...susuportahan ko kayo sa inyong adhikain na mapalawak ang salita at kultura ng Pilipino! sana lang wag umiral ang "ningas kugon at crab mentality" sa proyektong inyong itataguyod! mabuhay ang mga gurong Pilipino! naway dumami ang mga bayaning katulad ninyo na patuloy na nagpapaunlad ng sariling wika natin! MABUHAY KAYO!

TEACHER SOL said...

NIKKI, do you know that there's a Pinay Teacher here in Washington DC still teaching special ed up to now, totally blind sya because of cataract. 10 years na! take note, she's one of the best teachers here at I passed my 2 major state board exams because of her. I will blog about her next week. Her story is really inspiring to me!

GOYONG, advocate of aducation ka pa rin ba? Kung sasabihin mo sa akin ang URL ng blog mo, bakit hindi, hehe.

TEACHER SOL said...

"sana lang wag umiral ang "ningas kugon at crab mentality" sa proyektong inyong itataguyod! mabuhay ang mga gurong Pilipino!"

TAS, Ningas kugon? Hindi mangyayari yan dahil mas marami ako sa gawa kesa sa salita. Nasa cyberspace na rin ang aming Bulletin Board (http://pinoyteachersnetwork.blog-city.com), at dumadami na rin ang myembro nito sa aming egroup. Sana may mga taong katulad mo na nakakapag bigay sa amin ng lakas ng loob para dito.

Crab mentality? "Ikaw na ang gumawa ng mabuti, ikaw pa ang lalabas na masama". Ewan ko ba kung bakit nasa mentalidad yan ng ating kapwa Pilipino. Ang ugat daw nyan ay inggit. Sa halip na suporta ang ibigay, tutuligsain pa ang kabutihang idinudulot mo sa kapwa. Marami na akong karanasan sa ganyan, hindi ko na pinapansin yan. Masaya sila sa ganyan.

Kung maging biktima man ang Pinoy Teachers Network, ang masasabi ko lang..."we'll get by, with a smile"...

Sana mas marami pang tao ang sumuporta sa aming mga guro, sana mabigyang importansya ang aming adhikain na mapaunlad ang kalagayan ng mga bata sa ating bayan sa aming maliit na paraan.

Salamat muli, Tas, sana makita ko ang URL ng blog mo para mabisita rin kita.

MARISOL, I know that your training is taking up most of your energy right now. Ganyan din ako pag-summer. Walang tigil! Eto, nagtuturo pa rin ako (half-day)& nagre-review para sa Colonial Williamsburg Institute. Gusto kong i-max out ang salary credits ko, so nagregister ako sa university. Ipinaplano ang travel itinerary for August, also! When attempting a relaxing moment, nasa harap ng computer monitor! Bakit ganyan tayo, no?

I'm here to help you out. I posted the info on my blogs. Lumalaki na ang network, nakakatuwa!

So take a break ok? I have your back!

TEACHER SOL said...

LIZ, thanks a lot for responding to my SOS, can't really moderate the egroup right now. The messages are unbearable for me considering my very tight schedule for this training. We'll see each other soon! I am soo excited!

GOYONG, Hmmm, I will let the core group members decide about your membership. Where's the URL to your blog?

leonor said...

Hayaan mo, ipagkakalat ko. Mabuhay kayo!

schatzli said...

busy lang ako... i have been doing a mental mapping for your network

TEACHER SOL said...

LEONOR, maraming salamat sa suporta ng kababayan natin dyan sa National Writing Project.

SHA, I appreciate your thoughts, I'm also busy so I don't blog-hop much these days. I am ok, I hope you are too.

Toni said...

Thank you for sharing this! My sister's a teacher and she'll be interested in this!
