The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Metrobank Foundation Inc. released “My Teacher, My Hero National Teachers’ Month” special stamps  to highlight the teachers’ incredible feats similar to a superhero.

The “2020 National Teachers’ Month Stamp” features the four (4) different animated characters presented as superheroes, being thanked by their students. The statements “I AM GOOD”, “I AM A STAR”, “I AM BRIGHT”, “I AM BRAVE” amplify our teachers’ excellent role in educating the Filipino children, exploring their full potentials for what they would become in the future.   

According to PHLPost , aside from the technical aspects of learning, teachers also impress upon their students important values that complete their holistic learning experience.

"The coronavirus pandemic has affected many of our face to face activities and brought us into difficult situations, but our teachers has always been at the frontlines ensuring that students can continue to learn in a safe environment”, Postmaster General Joel Otarra said. 

Aside from unveiling this year’s stamp, PHLPost launches its annual “Salamat Po Teacher  Letter Writing Advocacy Program”. The purpose of it is to bring back the passion of letter writing among the youth, effectively promote Filipino values and develop young students’ skills in composition.
