National Teachers' Month - My Teacher,
Our earliest memory of victory and success started with our teachers
stamping our hands with a star and a very good mark whenever we do
something good in school. It may be successfully coloring an apple,
reading a verse on our textbook or writing our name 10 times - our
teacher will surely award us with a stamp on our hand.
The Philippine Postal Corporation will issue a pair of se-tenant
stamps to celebrate the 11th year of National Teachers’ Month from
September 5 to October 5, 2019. The designs of the se-tenant pair
depict the logo of “My Teacher, My Hero”, “Excellent!”, and “Thank
you, teacher!” stamped on the outreached hand of a teacher. This
stamp design features the hand of a teacher with a “stamp of
excellence” for being our heroes and helping us reach our dreams.
It’s our simple way of recognizing all the hard work and sacrifice
of our Filipino teachers.
This year’s theme is “I Teach, That’s My Superpower”. The Metrobank
Foundation, Inc., and the Department of Education are working in
partnership with other organizations to uphold the initiative of
giving back due recognition for teachers as humble heroes shaping
the minds of the nation.
