Bulacan educators cited as ‘new heroes, catalysts of change’
Provincial officials headed by Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and Vice Governor Daniel Fernando have recognized the important role of educators in the province by describing them as new “heroes” and “catalysts of change”.
Alvarado, who was the guest of honor and speaker during the awarding ceremony of the 27th Bulacan Outstanding Administrators, Teachers and Supervisors (BOATS) held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city late Wednesday afternoon, acknowledged the not so fancy but very influential role of educators in building a better nation.
“We all know that you are not only sharing literature, arts, science or mathematics inside the classrooms but also creating the awareness of the students on the lessons of life, on how to live good, upright and being meaningful members of the society,” Alvarado said.
Quoting some words from former US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt that “democracy cannot succeed” without good educators, Alvarado pointed out that education is a most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world.
Vice Governor Fernando said that educators are the inspirations of new leaders, builders and thinkers that are shaping the bright future of the country.
“We cannot be discounted the sacrifices and knowledge that are being transferred by our educators to the youth,” Fernando said.
For his part, Bulacan Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Romeo M. Alip said that the intellect, skill, capability and conduct of the awardees were wrought and fortified by the mission and vision of the Department of Education (DepEd).
