Bongbong Marcos honors teachers on National Teachers’ Day
MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Wednesday acknowledged the sacrifices being made by teachers for their students as he honored them on National Teachers’ Day.
In his message, Marcos said he salutes the country’s educators for ensuring the youth’s “holistic development” as they become “agents of change” in their communities.
“Let this day be a culmination of a month-long celebration in which we acknowledge the many sacrifices that our teachers make to mold our students and prepare them so they can achieve their dreams in life,” he said.
Marcos also said the occasion is an excellent opportunity for Filipinos to express their appreciation for teachers’ “invaluable service” to the country, especially as schools reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I trust that, with the help of our teachers, our country will grow stronger with every Filipino becoming more capable of building a better future for all,” he said.
“May this celebration not only inspire present teachers as they continue their efforts in shaping the lives of our young learners, but also motivate those whose dream is to be such agents of genuine unity and empowerment,” the President added.
