Globe Telecom, the country’s leading telecommunications network has partnered with Teach for the Philippines, a for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization to support a national campaign in celebration of the National Teachers’ Month recognizing exemplary contributions of teachers to nation-building and development.
Through Globe’s digital brand for the youth Globe Prepaid , Globe Vice President and Head of Prepaid Business Issa Cabreira took the role of a teacher in its partner school in Mandaluyong City. As a guest teacher, Cabreira taught English to the Grade 3 students of Highway Hills Integrated School and shared with the students her work experiences to emphasize the value of education and to inspire the students to strive for success.
“Globe Prepaid continues to strengthen its commitment to nation-building by recognizing the vital role of teachers in the growth of today’s youth. I personally have experienced what it feels like to be a teacher, and even for just a day, I can say that it’s challenging and rewarding at the same time, so we will forever be indebted to our teachers for having molded us to the persons we are now,” shared Cabreira. “In line with this, we also launched our very own social media campaign #GlobeWonderfulTeacher to acknowledge our teachers’ wonderful work in shaping the future of the nation”, she added.
In the campaign #WonderfulGlobeTeacher, twenty-one teachers will have the opportunity to be recognized and receive a tribute to mentors who have shown great dedication to their craft. Each lucky teacher to be selected will receive a “Globe Wonderful Teachers Awards”.
To join the campaign, all students can simply post selfies on their Facebook and Twitter accounts with the hashtag #GlobeWonderfulTeacher. To be eligible, each post must have a short description of the nominated teacher explaining her/his being wonderful. Daily winning entry will be chosen and prepaid load credits will be awarded to the winning student and teacher.
Yearly, the National Teachers’ Month is celebrated from September 5 to October 5 by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 242 recognizing the need to “celebrate the unique role and service that teachers play in guiding families, strengthening communities, and building the nation.” This year’s celebration is themed “My Teacher, My Hero” to acknowledge the teachers.
