Teachers are not just educators, they are also the students’ mentors, inspirations, and pillars of support. They help students believe in themselves and instil a love for learning that lasts a lifetime. All of these can create a nurturing environment in which students develop essential life skills. However, the life of a teacher is not without its challenges. Many educators face health-related hardships due to the demands of their profession. Loss of voice, frequent illnesses, and decreased ability to teach are some of the struggles that teachers encounter. The constant interaction with students, often in close quarters, can expose them to various germs and infections, making their health a priority concern.
“Our dear teachers are the critical point that makes a student ready for the future. They are also the ones who change lives and drive students to do well in life. It is most important that they are always healthy and in good shape, because if they are not, how can they inspire our students to dream big?” said Francis Zamora, San Juan City Mayor
Promoting health and safety within the school community is crucial, especially in the face of global health challenges. Teachers play a pivotal role in this endeavor, not only by setting an example but also by educating students about good hygiene practices.
“Schools are the agents of societal transformation, and our teachers are our main partners in promoting health and safety in the community. We always ensure that our teachers are healthy to be able to provide quality education to all our learners. That is why this partnership with Betadine is important to make sure that our beloved teachers perform at their best.” stressed Josefino C. Pogoy, Jr., Chief Education Supervisor, Curriculum Implementation Division – SDO San Juan City
