National Teachers' Month "Together4Teachers"

The National Teachers' Month (NTM) celebrates the excellence and greatness of Filipino teachers in building a patriotic and child-friendly nation.

 The month-long NTM celebration, which started September 5, will culminate on Oct. 5 which is the World Teacher’s Day (WTD) and also the National Teachers’ Day (NTD).

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Together4Teachers”. The digit “4” represents the 4As of Gratitude Framework: Attention, Approval, Admiration, and Appreciation. The objective is for all to come together as a community to celebrate and express gratitude for our teachers, using the 4As as its guide.

Through the NTM Commemorative Stamps, Phlpost pays tribute to our beloved and hardworking teachers who play an important role in shaping the future of the students under their guidance and care.  The Artworks for the colorful NTM Stamps were provided by illustrator Beth Parrocha, a founding member of Ang INK, ang Ilustrador Ng Kabataan - the Philippines' first and only organization of illustrators dedicated to children's illustrations.

The cartoon-style stamps illustrate the elements of Philippine culture that are embedded in the lively scenes of teachers sharing knowledge with students to learn more about our country's famous tourist spots such as Mayon Volcano in Albay, the Vinta of Zamboanga, Philippine tarsier of Bohol and the Banaue Rice Terraces in Ifugao province.
