As what I have written to other writing sites I have joined, I quoted lines from the popular song of 1969, "Leaving on a jet plane", these lines said "all my bags are packed. I'm ready to go. I'm standing here outside your door. I hate to wake you up and say goodbye..."

Salamanca Elementary School was my second school. I was promoted as a school principal I in the said school. I got 1 teacher in kinder, Grade 1 to 6, and a relief teacher. Those 8 teachers were supportive of me. I couldn't forget the generosity of the owner of the hacienda where my school is located.

My 4th school is Nagasi Elementary School. It is a complete elementary school. There is a class in kinder and Grades 1 to 6. Seventeen (17) teachers handled their respective classes. The parents and the Punong Barangay were always alert to help the school, especially when Brigada Eskwela, the annual national school maintenance is concerned.
|Cubay ES Teachers|
|Balabag ES Teachers|
Cubay Elementary School is the 5th school which is a less than an hour to travel from the city proper. It is accessible via motorized tricycle. I had 13 teachers. Nine of them were living within the barangay while the 4 teachers were commuting every day. Before I was transferred to another school, the school achieved a good improvement in its physical aspect. The invaluable support of the PTA president, parents, and the Punong Barangay made all these things possible.
My 6th and last school of assignment is Balabag Elementary School. I am proud of this school for my family is giving their all-out support in time of Brigada Eskwela. The Punong Barangay and the PTA president and his officers greatly contributed to the school plant improvement. The 15 teachers did their best in attaining the highest academic performance of the pupils in the National Achievement Test (NAT) of the grade 6.
The school had been awarded two times for the excellent and meritorious performance in access and internal efficiency, quality and relevance, and management of educational services in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
Now is the moment to say goodbye and to reminisce all the good memories I have had to those schools where I was assigned and also to the teachers, parents, and the community leaders for their invaluable support. "It hurts to say goodbye" describes what I am feeling today.
