6th School - Balabag Elementary School: The First and the last

It is still fresh on my mind when Mrs. Celedonia Sia, the new school principal of Balabag Elementary School invited us to her school at the recognition program and closing exercises. Sir Avelino Santillan, ALS supervisor was the speaker for the closing exercises and I was in the recognition program as a newly promoted school principal assigned to Salamanca Elementary School.

The school looked bare and the enrollment kept on striving to increase. When I got back to the said school as the new school principal to replace Sir Rolando Heria who was transferred to Nagasi Elementary School, I notice the school needed to continue its physical improvement as already started by Sir Heria. The academic performance of the school was within the Department of Education (DepEd) standard.

Kiosk Ideas

One of the benefits about owning a mall kiosk is that you can sell almost anything that you want. It could be shoes, clothes, sunglasses or food. There are a few ideas for mall kiosks that are popular among those who like stopping by the small areas in large malls. It's best to start with a business plan and think about the things that you enjoy selling and seeing as you will have to work with these items on a daily basis.

A kiosk with food is rather popular, especially if the mall doesn't have a food court or if the court is a small size. Offer items that customers would enjoy, such as popcorn, hot dogs, pretzels and doughnuts. Once you get an idea as to what customers like, you can start offering discounts on those items so that you sell more of them to make up for the lack of selling the other products.

Another option is to have a candy kiosk. You can set up a row of candy machines that customers would have to put a quarter in to get a handful of candy. You could also have bins with scoops so that customers can get small bags of candy with the price based on the weight of the bag.

Retirement Principle: Off the Service, In the Service

To retire then what? That is the question what I have to answer. What should be my plan? It hurts to say goodbye to those persons whom I have served for several years which our companionship and camaraderie are well established. We're just brothers and sisters that we belong to one family. Sooner or later, I could adjust to a private life. No one to serve but my family, my children, my wife, and of course the Lord.

Sir Gil retirement papers There is an adopted saying and I quote, "Once a teacher is always a teacher". How I wish I could personally relate this oft-quoted saying. I officially retired last October 14, out of diligent and faithful 25-year service to the Department of Education (DepEd) as a classroom teacher  in 2 schools, and a school principal of 6 schools.

I am deeply honored to work with the DepEd for 25 years. I was elated for the tribute which my teachers in my last school assignment given me. In short video presentation they've created, it defines me of who I am. It certainly describes me - "a loving husband, a caring father, a good friend, a determined leader."

My wife and I had maintained a faithful married life for 44 years. I hadn't failed my sons and daughters of rearing them up to the "nurture and admonition of the Lord." I am a person who keeps a friend and loyal to them. For 25 years, God knows how I worked and dealt my teachers who were under me, and how I discharged my duties and responsibilities as educational leader.

When I'm Sixty-Five

Is there something that reminds you, especially the lovers of music? Yes, you have come across with that line especially the avid followers of The Beatles. You see it is similar to The Beatles' song, "When I'm Sixty-Four."

Rebing and me
Now, I'm definitely 65 years of age on October 13. I'm old enough. By the word Old, we could derive a lot of wisdom. My pastor friend, Leo Claridad a day after my birthday sent me a text message on the importance of OLD. And I quote his message,
"Old wood is best to burn. Old wines are best to drink. Old wise men are best to ask advice from. Old friends are still the most precious like gold.
"So it's not that bad to be old at all because the older we get, the better people we are supposed to become."
He quoted Psalm 92:14 the Bible (New International Version), "They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green."

I replied him. I sent this: "God provides everything. He always there. Therefore, take the letter G from God and append to the word OLD and you will have GOLD. That is why old persons are as precious as the gold. My pastor friend didn't reply.

5th School Cubay Elementary with Traumatized Kids

I won't forget the horrible incident that shook the school sometime in 2012 and the pupils were afraid and traumatized the pupils of my school. It seemed that I was one of them too. This happened  several minutes before noon. It's a lunch time for the pupils.

"The school is shaking," shouted the school children who were eating their lunch under the shady tree. One child was surprised upon seeing the water inside her glass was moving.

The furniture which I was sitting while reading a text message from my mobile phone was moving. I stopped for awhile and still I felt that the couch was moving slowly. I rushed outside my office and saw a group of pupils were on the ground sitting. Some of them were crying. I saw my H.E. teacher coming towards me shouting, "Sir Batyag ka may Linog?" (Sir, have you felt that there's an earthquake?)

That was the terrible experienced I have had in Cubay Elementary School, my 5th school assignment as a school principal. I saw how the pupils behaved, how the teachers assisted the confused pupils to stay out of their classroom. And I saw parents in group coming to the school fetching their respective children.

New Environs, New Horizons : Nagasi Elementary School (4th School Assignment)

Here goes another educational journey to my new 4th school assignment, NAGASI ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, Division of La Carlota City. It envisions to produce a pupil who is respectful to human rights, whose discipline is guided by spiritual and moral values, who can think critically and creatively among others. The place where the school is located has influenced me much on my spiritual awareness that initially brought me back to God fearing and dependency.

I have never dreamed that I would be assigned to Nagasi Elementary School as a school principal for I have been there in Nagasi in 1972. I stayed there with my friend and college mate, Hernani Osorio who is a pastor assigned in the said place. We slept at the house of the late former Punong Barangay Aurelio "Awi" Duenas. I joined with him there for I was in a great trouble.

While we are sleeping, we discussed some passages in the Bible and relayed to our personal experience the important application to our day-to-day way of living. During his service, I played the guitar to accompany the congregation while they're singing. And the rest was a history of my dark life as a student in which I was able to overcome as the Lord wants me to be.

An Uphill Journey to My 3rd School Assignment

Going to Yubo Elementary School as my 3rd school assignment is a challenge of my managerial expertise as a school principal. This school is the biggest school I ever supervised with 18 teachers and more than 500 pupils in enrollment.

The only consolation which a principal like me to feel confident about to take over another school for a reshuffling or reassignment of the head assigned is the familiarity of the members of the teaching force.

In a small division of La Carlota City, every teacher including the school administrators and the education supervisors are well acquainted with each other. The annual division activities for the teachers every December and summer In-service training. Constant contact and communication makes every teacher know each other.

The transportation in going to the school is scarce. There is one two public vehicles that plies every day and we have to catch up with their schedule to avoid being late in school. In case, we couldn't make it. We have to hire a motorized tricycle which charged as too high for the fare.

The Journey Continues to Salamanca ES as School Principal

From Cainaman Elementary School, I was transferred to Salamanca Elementary School. This is my second school assignment and it is my first school to handle as a school principal.

Well, I left Cainaman Elementary School with a broken heart. One of my old building was caught by fire due to a faulty wiring according to the report of the Fire Department officer. It started from our property room, near the classroom of Mrs. Teresita Montales, The property room was the safe storage of our condemnable books and some units of school equipment. Those that were kept inside the room including the 80 pieces of plywood to be used in the spot repair of the classroom and ceilings were all consumed by a night fire.

Starting the Journey at Caiñaman Elementary School as a Teacher, School Head

I finished my college degree in Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) in 1985 in La Carlota City College with flying colors. I took the Licensure Examinations for Teachers (LET) in the following year and I passed. I just kept it and didn't apply for a teaching job for I had already a job in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) as a custodian. No plan to teach yet.

Five years later, The Church announced that all custodian position in the Church would be phased out. So I had not choice but I was compelled to apply in the Division Office for a teaching profession. I had prepared an application letter and submitted it to the Division Office.

The applicants were ranked after they underwent the process of hiring them. And I was in the number one rank in the post. Mr. Vicente Mental, the former teacher of my youngest son, Gilbor, Jr. came over to our house early in the morning and told me that Mr. Montaño, the Schools Division Superintendent wanted to talk to me regarding my teaching application. The interview didn't take long. Mr. Montaño advised me to tender my resignation to The Church and I would start teaching in Cainaman Elementary School. I didn't complete my last one year job in the Church. I submitted my resignation paper and the Church approved it.
