The posing challenge of distance and confinement did not stop Normalites from honoring their educators’ commitment and dedication in a virtual celebration of World Teacher’s Day with the theme “World Teachers’ Day 2021: Teachers at the heart of education recovery” on October 14, 2021, via Zoom and Facebook Live.
 
In her welcome speech, Dr. Filomena T. Dayagbil, CESE Officer-in-Charge – Office of the University President left behind points of inspiration for the educators.
 
“Let this be a reminder to all of us [teachers] to be teacher leaders; that our collective purpose of educating the young is much bigger than our individual interests; that we can do more and be more for others,” she remarked.
 
The school’s Main, Balamban, and Medellin campuses then presented tribute videos to show their appreciation and gratitude where a mix of humor and emotions was added when the videos’ invigorating words, meme edits, and virtual memories with the professors were shown.
 
To further express their gratitude, students were given the opportunity to declare a word of thanks to their favorite professors through the event’s Magtutudlo Shout-out segment where selected messages were read, moving the audience with their grateful words.
 
Cebu Normal University – Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (CNU-VSMMC) College of Medicine also participated in the celebration of honoring esteemed professors who truly delivered and exceeded what is required and expected of them in the department’s pilot year.
 
Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Daisy R. Palompon concluded the celebration by inspiring and thanking both students and professors alike by noting that the reason for the professors’ commitment and dedication is the “students’ desire to acquire higher education”.
 
E-certificates were given by the three campuses’ respective Supreme Student Council (SSC) to all teachers in recognition of their service. Special awards were also given in acknowledgment of the outstanding instructors who have gone the extra mile in their profession.
