Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on the commemoration
of World Teachers' Day 2015

As we recognize the contribution of teachers worldwide, I still continue to believe that Filipino teachers are the best in the world.

Filipino educators are modern-day heroes who whole-heartedly sacrifice themselves to better our country. They are integral partners in nation-building as they provide more than just their skills, intelligence and time in order to shape the minds of our youth.

More than this, our educators are also second parents to our children. They nurture our kids as their own, extending the love from the home to the school.

I know firsthand the sacrifice that our teachers do, I know and empathize with the hardships and challenges that they face every day. My paternal grandmother was a former teacher and through her guidance, my father brought us up to value the importance of service, malasakit and pakikipagkapwa - principles that I still embrace today as a public servant.

To our teachers, we will always be grateful for your continued excellence, leadership and service. May you continue to be a true inspiration, not only for our youth, but to all of us in public service.

Mabuhay ang gurong Filipino!
