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!
One hundred years from now it will not matter
what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in,
how much money I had in the bank, nor what my clothes looked like.
But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.  ~Author Unknown

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.
- John Steinbeck

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

Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.
- Napoleon Hill

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
- Teton Lakota (Indian saying)

We 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 tutorials. 
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.  For more stories on our tutoring sessions click to http://voluntutoring.blogspot.com
