About a decade ago, Dr Nice, the founder of TeachersinPH, thought of ways to contribute for the betterment of the educational system. Astonished on the improvement of global education, she was confident that Philippines will have a centralized educational standard for all educators. What does she mean with “Centralized Educational Standard”? She meant, an online interface where teachers’ needs are answers. Where everything is readily available for them without the need to personally visit DepED/CHED’s office. A secured system where teachers and students have a unique ID so that their progress can be tracked all throughout. These brilliant system is already followed by other countries. Although, she was dismayed that such progress did not penetrate in the whole of Philippines, she converted her disappointments to fuel her to act and make her thoughts a reality. Thankfully, she have a strong support system and her life partner made her aspirations a reality. She also found a good support system by the individuals who shares the same belief. Thus the birth of Teachers in PH website.
What is TeachersinPH?
The founder believes that we are now in the world of OUTPUT! Most of the educational materials and resources are provided for the educators. We do not need to do what the theorists, founders of education, psychologists, behaviorists did for us years ago. They did all the INPUT. Now, what the teacher needs is to educate, to teach, to instruct, to train. Actually, what she really believes in is that Education and Technology works best together, that TECHNOLOGY is FOR us and not AGAINST us. Nancy Kassebaum reminded us that there can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails. Aware of these contrainsts, Teachers in PH aims to have these attended through our Menus: Resources,free downloadable resources for teachers. eReview for teacher aspirants, Blog for important news, events, circulations, emerging issues about global and local education and finally Contact page so that TiP could generate suggestions to better our site.
To help aleviate our educational standards through the provision of relevant global information on Education and Technology.
One day, PH educational system will have a better system which will make the lives of the teachers a lot easier so they can really do what they’re supposed to do, to teach, to touch the heart of the young.
