National Teachers College - 75th
The National Teachers College was officially
incorporated on September 29, 1928. The Founders were Dr. Segundo M.
Infantado, Sr. and Dr. Flora A. Ylagan. The exemplary lives they
led, their teachings and ideals, inspired NTC graduates in making
their Alma Mater the venerable institution of learning for educators
that it is today.
Through the years the NTC has continuously
striven to make its academic programs relevant to the life and
progress of the nation. It believes in democratic education and its
main objective is to mold a corps of dedicated and competent
educators who shall in turn impart on their students such virtues
and qualities as are needed in the formation of a good citizenry and
an ideal society. In recognition of its 75 fruitful years of service
to the Country, the National Teachers College faithfully adheres to
the principles of democracy, responsibility and social competence.
The design is based on the "Ang Karunungan ay Tanglaw" monument, a
sculptural piece of art that depicts the Filipino's unsatiable
thirst for knowledge and esteemed regard for education. A fitting
tribute to Dona Teodora Alonzo, mother of our National Hero, Dr.
Jose P. Rizal.
A brainchild of Dr. Priscilla Y. Arguelles,
herself a veteran educator and now President and Chair of the NTC
Board of Trustees, the monument was skillfully executed by a young
sculptor, Paul Ouiafio and now it proudly stands on the Triangular
Island bounded by Legarda and J. Nepomuceno streets adding beauty
and splendour to the City and helping restore the old glory that was
