Do you still remember your teacher in grade school or in high school?
Do your remember the good memories that they does to you to make sure that you excel in class or that you can keep up with your studies
I could say that our teachers are the ones who mold us to and guide us to be what we are besides our parents. They are the one mentoring us to be a greater version of ourselves.
Alumni in my high school make sure that every year, we make it a point to do thing to show our appreciation to our beloved teachers and we are not alone in this advocacy.
Last week, I attended an event that focuses on giving back to the teachers what they deserve. They honor teacher because of what they contribute to the society and to the children of the nation because of their unending sacrifice in teaching. A presscon was held in preparation for the upcoming Gabay Guro’s 9th Teacher’s Tribute day.

Gabay Guro, is a CSR arm under the PLDT Smart Foundation. Under the foundation , teachers were given Scholarships, Trainings, Housing and Educational Facilities, Livelihood Programs, Broadbanding and Computerization, and Teachers’ Tribute.
The Gabay Guro is a brain child of a small group of like-minded PLDT executives banded together over coffee for an advocacy for teacher. They started the program nine years ago and they shell out their own money to start the program.
Gabay Guro managed to write off mediocrity since then, championing excellence and paying tribute to teachers all over the country (and nearby countries) by bringing attention to their heroic deeds and at the same time, providing them with the necessary tools to contribute to the change in the lives of their students and their families.
And now, The Gabay Guro’s 9th Teacher’s Tribute will be celebrated this year. It will be the biggest gathering of the country’s celebrities. The event will happen on Sept. 25 at the MOA Arena. Stellar names set to give the teachers the time of their lives on this day are Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Gary Valenciano, Pops Fernandez, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, Ms. Lea Salonga and Mega star Ms. Sharon Cuneta and more surprise guests on the big day.
This is the day where our teachers get to let their hair loose, meet the biggest celebrities, be treated to a whole day of entertainment and huge raffle prizes beginning with house and lot and vehicles., anything to remind them of their invaluable presence in our lives.
This year’s event is made possible through the help of the ff. sponsors: Perry’s Group of Companies (for the house and lot), Foton for the (Gratour Van), Intel, Devant, Motorlandia (for the Honda and Suzuki motorcyles), Ropali, Penshoppe, National Bookstore, Enchanted Kingdom, Splash, Tempra, Flanax, Bonamine, Vivalyte, Mundipharma, Gardenia, Bic, Art Attack, Microsoft, Smart Bro, Ultera, Talk N Text and 51 Talk.
