National Teachers' Month 2017

De La Salle University-Dasmariñas joins the nation in honoring its teachers for the whole month, from September 5- October 5, 2017. For this year, the theme for National Teachers’ Month, “Gurong Pilipino, Kaakbay sa Progreso,” highlights the role of educators in nation building.

This year’s celebration will focus on honoring the hard work and dedication of those who are part of the teaching profession. The celebration also emphasizes the importance of teachers as agents in nurturing and developing globally minded individuals, communities and families.

In its Memorandum No. 137 s. 2017, even the Department of Education emphasized that this year’s theme seeks to uplift the image of the teaching profession by highlighting the fulfillment brought on by shaping young minds. The same memorandum also emphasized that the goal of the annual celebration of Teachers’ Month is to provide an avenue for Filipinos to express their gratitude to tireless teachers whose hard work is setting the grounds for future leaders of the nation.

Happy Teachers' Month!
