"My salute to the prime movers of this 2-day seminar spearheaded by our motherly Schools Division Superintendent, Dr. Evelyn R. Fetalvero together with her right hand and equally dynamic ASDS, Dr. Elizabeth S. Larase, to our brilliant and competent speakers Sir Jesus Sison, Sir Danilo Cacait and Sir Nathaniel Saquiban, our active Division Education Supervisors, District Supervisors, School Administrators, fellow mentors, ladies and gentlemen, a pleasant afternoon.
Let me start my impression with this passage in Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you, I ordained you as a prophet to the nations."
Reflecting on God's words at this very moment has made us come to a point of realizing that the very reason why we have chosen teaching as a profession is; it is because God has designed and ordained it to happen for us!
Ma'am, we are grateful for initiating this 2-day seminar on PAVES for free. Thank you for paving the way towards our professional and spiritual growth.
To our lecturers, Kudos to you Sir! Thank you for giving valuable and significant insights that will help us transform into a better person and even into the best teacher.
To my fellow participants, we are very lucky to have this special training seminar which is really very different from the several trainings that we have attended. May we grasp and embrace the learnings that we have gained from our speakers. Let us learn to be more attentive and participative in all trainings and seminars.
As the Bible says, "even if we have all the riches and pleasures of the world yet you do not know God, everything is meaningless!"
My fellow mentors, let us not be changed by our own efforts but we will allow the Holy Spirit to transform us.
As teachers, we are the living testimony not just to the four corners of this hall but as well to the young lives entrusted to us by God. Let us be ta blessing in words, in actions and in thoughts. And from this day forward, we will together say, "we will never be the same again."
