The first Teach for the Philippines Week celebration took place early this past September.
In an effort to expand our movement, our organization recruited key leaders in both the public and private sectors to become guest teachers alongside one of our Fellows in several of our partner schools. This event serves to show, by example, the importance of the teaching profession.
We would like to thank all of our guest teachers, our Fellows, our partner principals and our participating placement schools. We would also like to thank our videographers, Independent Minds. Teach for the Philippines Week was a tremendous success, and we couldn’t have done it without you!
