An afternoon of surfing through the web, I stumbled upon this video.
I usually pick videos to watch. I admit that I did not know there are also TEDx talks happening in the country; my apologies for being ignorant, so I got curious with the video title.
Just few months back I was kind of disappointed with how some of our public school teachers here view their students. They sounded like they’ve given up on them without even trying. It is not judging when you see and hear it for yourself. Students being told “morons” and “idiots”, and being teased and compared with their parents. I understand that it’s not easy being a public school teacher, but above all, it is not easy being the poor child. I was a product of a public school, a poor child. Proud to be one.
As I listened to this teacher, my heart melted. I cried on the course of her speech and I felt ashamed again of my lack of passion in life. She delivered such an inspiring speech that resonated in my heart and I bet most hearts that have listened to it.
I found an articled too from the Philstar, an English transcript of the video in the hopes that it will be read and heard by the whole universe. 🙂
I hope you’d find hope in her words, too! As it did to me.
I salute her!
