A Batasan Hills National High School mentor was recognized as Quezon City’s most outstanding teacher for 2019, besting 15,000 of her colleagues based on four criteria measuring their students’ achievements.

Joan B. Callope was named as the city’s most outstanding educator during QC’s World Teachers’ Day celebration held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on September 30, garnering the best accumulated scores in the following criteria:

  • zero percent dropout rate;
  • 100 percent promoted rate of students;
  • 90 to 100 percent rate of good nutritional status of student that are beneficiaries of the school-based feeding program; and
  • zero percent rate of non-readers and non-numerates

Callope said the award serves as an opportunity for her school to get more support from the local government and different organizations.

“Maraming salamat sa QC government at Schools Division Office. Hindi ko sasayangin itong pagkakataon, at tinitingnan ko ito bilang isang oportunidad dahil mas lalaki pa ang suporta na ibibigay sa akin at sa aking paaralan dahil sa pagkilala,” Callope said.

Quezon City also recognized 11 other educators as the best in their respective districts and levels.

Marites Letrodo of Project 6 Elementary School, Ferdinand Garcia of Holy Spirit  Elementary School, Baby Agnes Galapia of Pura V. Kalaw Elementary School, and Wind Love Cucal of Placido del Mundo Elementary School were named as best elementary teachers.

Pamela Desuyo of Lucresia Kasilag Senior High School, Marvin Diaz of Quezon City High School, Lance Gerard Abalos of Balara High School, Ian Joen Noel Alvarez of Sta. Lucia High School, and Rowena Arcega of Culiat High School were in turn cited as the city’s best high school teachers. 

Edna Gerance of Commonwealth Elementary School and Annariza Alzate of Maligaya High School were named as the best special education teacher and best alternative learning system (ALS) teacher respectively.

It is the second consecutive year that the Quezon City government conducted its tribute at the Smart Araneta Coliseum recognizing the contribution of teachers. This year’s tribute was organized in coordination with the Schools Division Office, Magna Anima Teachers College, ABS-CBN, Araneta City, Gerry Roxas Foundation, and J. Amado Araneta Foundation.

QC Education Affairs Unit head Julliene Alyson Rae Medalla said that they hope the program would be held every year to commend teachers.

“We are so thankful for all your contributions to the education landscape of the city and we hope to continuously work with you to be able to uplift the quality of education in the city,” Medalla said.

October 5 is World Teachers Day and October has been named Teachers Month in the Philippines.
