A DAVAO City councilor urged teachers to learn more about education technology and update their knowledge regularly as she praised their contribution to society in commemoration of the World Teachers' Day.
Committee on education, science and technology, arts and culture chair councilor Pilar Braga, in her privilege speech, said that for teachers to attain the highest ideals of education, they must be in stride with technology.
This would help not only the teachers but also the students to sharpen their skills in knowledge, in the art of teaching and interpersonal skills, Braga said.
"The teachers are being honored everywhere because through order and chaos, rebellion and disease, strife and harmony, flood and drought, teachers persist to thrive in their work of bringing light and liberation to people by education," Braga said.
Baraga added that teachers make teaching more enjoyable by sharing simple stories of joy and happiness while the students look for good teachers who can inspire and motivate them.
By virtue of a Proclamation No. 242 issued by then President Benigno Aquino III in 2011, the period from September 5 to October 5 of every year is celebrated as National Teachers' Month.
