Project Description: "“Teaching is the noblest profession.” We often hear this but are we aware on its true meaning?

Our project is about teachers whom we want others see as leaders in their own rights. They may not be elected leaders who are always visible to the public and whose works are not often acknowledged but their impact to their pupils and students are for a lifetime.

Most often while students are still entrusted under the care of their teachers, negative notions like mean and strict are seen that often lead these students to hate their teachers but when students mature, they start to realize and value the efforts of their teachers.

Based on our observations, we see that people don’t give due importance to their teachers and many even look down at them because of the bad image that are revealed by media because of wrong doings of few teachers. This observation led our group to work on a site entitled “Teachers Exposed”. We would like to bring out the real lives of teachers whether they are good or bad. We would also like to bring out that there are many difficulties that are faced by our teachers so our society must show respect to our cherished teachers. As students, we were alarmed with the truth stated above so we researched and interviewed teachers from schools in Baguio City and found out several inspiring stories that led us to the creation of this website.

Our website contains relevant information about teachers’ lives and their impact to society especially in teaching and molding young people, who are the hope of our nation, not only with knowledge but with good values. We hope that the lives of teachers that are presented in our site would encourage every viewer to be united in giving respect that each teacher rightfully deserves. "
