Say ‘Thank you’ to your teacher, DepEd urges

By

In two simple words, honor your teacher with gratitude.

The Department of Education (DepEd) on Thursday called on students to honor their teachers with simple thanks as it launched the month-long celebration of educators in public and private schools nationwide.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro on Thursday initiated DepEd’s “Thank You, Teacher” campaign as part of celebrations of Teachers’ Month this September and World Teachers’ Day on Oct. 5.

“I think we should regularly take time to revitalize the image of teachers and draw public attention to their value in society,” Education Secretary Armin Luistro said in a statement.

“It is but proper that the country dedicate a whole month to recognize teachers for their unique role in preparing students for the future, in strengthening communities and in building a nation,” said the official.

Luistro also urged students to tap their creativity and say their thank yous in their own unique way, from writing them simple notes and giving tokens to posting messages to their favorite teachers through social media.

    With gratitude, thank you for acknowledging our teachers. Just a comment. Read your article this morning. Isn’t it proper that we say “Three simple words” and not “Two”? The campaign urges the society, initiated by DepEd, to honor the teachers by saying “Thank You, Teacher.” Nevertheless, we all should be grateful of the sacrifices and dedication of our teachers. Thank you, Teachers!

    Thank You to all my teachers kahit na palakol ang grade ko, pingot sa tenga dahil mali ang sagot ko at kurot sa singit being mischievous.
    Again, thank you teacher kahit di nyo ako teacher’s pet.
