You must be willing to go through continuing education (continuous development of potentials) You must strive for excellence ( not “pwede na” mentality ) You commit yourself to moral, ethical and religious values & dedicate yourself to service.Copyright ©, otb2008 Source: The Teaching Profession by Bilbao et al

  6. 6. If teaching is your mission then it means: a. It is the “task” entrusted to you in this world. b. It is your assigned task thus you’ve got to prepare for it! c. It calls for a continuing professional education. “Once a teacher, forever a student”Copyright ©, otb2008
  7. 7. Teaching as a vocation The word “vocation” comes from the Latin word “vocare” which means “to call” thus vocation is a “call”. For Catholics, the CALLER is GOD Himself. “Many are called but few are chosen” For Non-believers, the CALLER might be a man calling another man.Copyright ©, otb2008
  8. 8. If teaching is your vocation then it means: You said YES to your call to teach! You commit yourself in the total transformation of the learner.
