Yesterday, our school was invited to give an intermission number for the closing ceremony of an event conducted by the Caviteños of Southern California and I am one of those who are asked to perform. The audience are Filipino-Americans, who have been living abroad for a very long time. Together with fellow teachers, we decided to perform our two favorites, the “Curacha and Alcamfor”. We are very much applauded, that in just a short notice we were able to give a great performance.
A teacher’s work is not confined inside the four corners of the classroom. There are many times that we have to leave the room, and teach even those who have already graduated, not as classroom teachers but as ambassadors, showcasing our country’s rich heritage and culture.
We formed a team, kasama ang iba pang lalakeng guro. We had a great game, their defense is excellent, but in the end it was our offense that prevailed. Masaya kami, pero mas masaya ang mga nakapanood na mga estudyante.
