THE Department of Education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DepEd-Armm) has hired 765 new teachers for the agency’s two districts in the province of Maguindanao.
Lawyer Rasol Mitmug, DepEd-Armm secretary, said that 435 of the 765 newly-hired teachers for Maguindanao’s first district have signed their appointment and deployment orders on Tuesday, July 3, during an acceptance and mass oath-taking ceremony.
Mitmug said similar ceremony was held on Monday for the remaining 330 newly-hired teachers for the province’ second district.
Aside from Mitmug, the mass signing was attended by Armm Governor Mujiv Hataman, Bureau of Public Information Executive Director Amir Mawallil, and other DepEd-Armm officials.
The secretary said the hiring of new teachers is part of DepEd-Armm’s mission to provide quality education for Bangsamoro children.
The teachers were hired after they passed a strict hiring process that includes Assessment and Competency Examination for Teachers in Armm, an interview and a teaching demonstration.
Mitmug previously announced that DepEd-Armm is currently preparing the deployment orders of 2,458 teachers for the entire region, which Armm officials hope would be accomplished as soon as possible. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
