Each one of us...
... in one way or
another, is a teacher.
If we are parents, we
teach our values to our kids. If we have younger siblings, we teach
them how to behave by the way we act towards them. At school, we are
teachers and students not only in academics but also about
relationships, responsibilities, excellence and many more things.
The question is not if
we are teachers or not but if we are good teachers. We know a good
teacher when we see one. He is the one who is patient with us when we
find it most difficult to learn. Let's pay tribute to the good teachers
in all of us!
Happy Teacher's Day on October 5, 2008!

I have come to believe that a great
teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other
great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the
medium is the human mind and spirit.

We must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but as candles
to be lit.

their greatest failure.

Judge each day, not by the harvest, but
by the seeds you plant.
Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
Tell me and I will forget,
Show me and I will learn,
Involve me and I will understand

want to thank those of you who have responded to our call for
children's storybooks and workbooks! The kids we are tutoring
are so blessed!
A small group of tutors goes to Brgy. Bungad every other
saturday to tutor around 10 or so gradeschool scholars of He
Cares Foundation. Many thanks as well to Bgy. Captain Ricky
Corpuz who allows us to use the barangay premises for our
He is also fixing up a room for us to set up a barangay library
where the kids can stay and practice their reading (which they
really need to do!).
This is a very simple yet meaningful activity for any small
group of people and we hope it will make a difference in the
lives of these very bright children! They just need a helping
hand and more than any academic superiority, we are giving them
the encouragement to keep on keeping on!
If you want to donate more books, just address them to Christina
and drop them off at any Papemelroti branch. It will be
part of our new library! If you want to be one of our
tutors, simply reply to this e-mail with the word "TUTOR" in the
subject line and we will include you in our tutors listing.
