The new set of District II Teachers' League Officers for school year 2012-2013 were figuratively described by their inducting officer as "tapestry of leaders" for they're expected to be a "good weaver" in their recent induction rites.
"Why are you here?" "Why are you inducted (to office)?" asked OIC-SDS Portia M. Mallorca who is a "resume' of a true leader" as the emcee, Frances Marie P. Servicio addressed her.
Thus, everyone as a "good weaver" must be working together harmoniously and collaboratively for one mission, one vision, though they've different strategy.
"It is an opportunity for being the officer to show your best," said Mallorca.
"Be the best of a person. There's a time that you can't be awarded, but you can be a good leader," she urged.
On their job related task, she told that as teachers, they're serving the children entrusted to them. When they serve them and thinking otherwise, their service is not total.
"Grab the opportunity. DepEd is here!" she urged.
In working, she stressed that they're all challenged to improve their performance. All of them belong to DepEd La Carlota, they should increase their performance indicator, decrease their drop-out rate.
She cited a very tragic story about a boy and a father who bought a brand new car. This was about a moral lesson between "loving and choosing."
The story runs this way: The 4-year-old kid got a blunt object and wrote something in one of the doors of his father's new brand car. His father saw him, got angry. He struck his son's head with a wrench. The boy fell down on the ground with a bloody head, unconscious. The father rushed him to the hospital. Luckily the boy recovered from unconsciousness. The father got back home and checked his car. He read the writing on the car's door: "I love you, Dad." The father was shocked upon reading it. He blamed himself of what he did to his son. Then he committed suicide...
She pointed this out in relation to teaching, that it is for the love of children that they choose to become a teacher.
She further illustrated what impressed her when she's visiting every school in the division is when the (school) children are inside the classroom and they're happy because teachers are there for the love of children.
