Top 5 Paasa of 2016 Teachers Edition

9 Shares

For teachers, the year 2016 has been a roller coaster ride filled with a mixture of challenges, blessings, and guess what, expectations. Yes, you read that right. That’s why before this year ends, we are listing down the Top 5 Paasa of 2016 – Teachers Edition. Some of  it will be just for laughs so do not take it “too seriously”. Have fun!

1. HOLIDAYS

Because of the loads of tasks they carry upon their shoulders, teachers often long for holiday breaks which give them a chance to spend a day or two with their families or go traveling to a place where they can release their stresses, yes, stresses to nth level. Kaya naman kapag may pagkakataon ay todo search ang kaguruan sa mga special non-working holidays ngayong taon. Kung pwede nga lang ay ideklara na wala ring pasok ang anniversary ng Aldub o ang panunumpa ni Pangulong Duterte sa kanyang katungkulan. Sayang nga naman, two days din yun.

2. THE NOTORIOUS HASHTAG #WALANGPASOK

Sino ba naman sa atin ang magkakaila na minsan sa taong ito ay nadama mo rin ang lamig ng panahon sa mga araw na walang hinto ang pag-ulan at ang nakakaakit na pagtawag ng malambot mong kama, tila nagsasabing halika, matulog ka, pahinga na muna.

Isa ako sa libu-libong umasa na sa kasabay ng pagbuhos ng ulan ay ang pag-announce na #WalangPasok. Ngunit sa kasamaang palad, ay tila naging gawi na hindi lamang ng mga kabataan kundi pati na rin ng ilan sa atin ang ganitong uri ng hiling sa mga panahong ang ilan sa ating mga kababayan ay sinasalanta ng malakas na hangin o pag-ulan.

Ito yung mga araw na naaalala natin si Mayor o si Congressman. Ito yung mga araw na napapadalas ang ating pagdarasal. Kahit umihi lamang ang palaka ay full force na agad sa pag-comment sa mga Facebook pages sa pag-asang anumang oras ay makikita natin ang ating bayan sa listahan ng mga #WalangPasok

Madalas ay tagumpay. Hayahay ika nga. Maghapon kang makakanood ng Koreanovela. Maghapon ay makakakain at makakatulog. Maghapon mong makakasama ang iyong pamilya. Ang saya di ba? Pero may pagkakataon din naman na ikaw ay nabigo at umasa.

3. SALARY INCREASE

Kasabay ng pagluklok ni Duterte bilang bagong pangulo ng ating bansa ay ang pag-asa ng mga guro na itaas ang ating sweldo na kung tutuusin ay sumasapat lamang sa ating mga pangangailangan o kung madalas ay hindi pa nga. Malaki raw ang pag-asang na ang ating sahod ay itaas sa kadahilanang mahal “raw” ng pangulo ang mga guro sapagkat ang kaniyang ina ay isa ring guro.

Masarap sa pandinig. Masarap isipin. Pero bes, masakit ang umasa. At sa loob ng isang taon, ay puro paasa ang ating nabasa lalung lalo na sa social media. Nariyan pa ang mga usap-usapan na magiging 39, 000 o 25, 000 ang basic salary ng kaguruan. Pero nasaan na? Sabi nga nila, TO RECEIVE IS TO BELIEVE na lang. Mahirap ang umasa at masaktan nang paulit-ulit. Hugot pa more!

4. PERFORMANCE-BASED BONUS (PBB)

Patapos na nag taon ngunit marami pa rin sa atin ang umasa at nabigo na maibibigay ang isang bagay na kung tutuusin ay kay tagal na nating hinihintay, ang PBB. Unfair kung ituring ng ilan dahil sa hindi pantay-pantay na halagang matatanggap ng bawat paaralan.

Sa loob ng nakalipas na mga buwan ay walang sawang umasa ang mga guro na ang bonus na sana ay matatanggap nila bago matapos ang taon ay mapapasakamay nila, ngunit marami ang pinaasa. Sasalubungin ang bagong taon na salat ang bulsa. Ang handa sa mesa ay ipinangutang pa. Yan ang masakit na katotohanang kinakaharap ilan sa ating mga kaguruan, katotohanang ni sa hinagap ay hindi naranasan ng mga taong inaasahan natin sa pagsulong ng mga pagbabago para sa ikabubuti ng lahat ng kaguruan at ng ating kagawaran.

Gayunpaman, anu mang halaga na ating natanggap o matatanggap ay nararapat lamang na ating pasalamatan dahil ito ay biyaya pa ring maituturing na kaloob ng Poong Maykapal.

5. THE SYSTEM

I don’t want to include this one in the list as this may require another article just to tackle this one but we cannot deny the fact that it is still on top of the list when it comes to the things we expect to undergo positive changes.

Ang sistema ng edukasyon sa Pinas ang isa sa mga bagay na pilit tayong pinapaasa. Nais nila na makapaghatid tayo ng dekalidad na edukasyon sa mga batang ating tinuturuan ngunit sa kabila nito ay ang samu’t saring mga trabaho na ating kinakaharap sa araw-araw. Nariyan na ang sangkaterbang paper works na kung tutuusin ay hindi na dapat kasama pa sa ating tungkulin. Sabi nga nila, 60-40 na raw ang paper works to teaching ratio ngayon. Mahirap umasa na ito ay mababago sa isang iglap lamang.

In fact, it may take years before our whole educational system live up to the expectations of the teachers and Filipino people. But despite that, let us just be positive about the path we are leading to because like it or not, the teachers play a major part in this system. And our role in defining its future is more than we can imagine.

Did we miss something that is worthy to be included in this list? Let us know. Write them in the comment box below. Thank you!


This post wasn’t meant to make rants about the things mentioned above. Instead, it serves as a friendly reminder for us to continue being optimistic about our future and to remain thankful for whatever blessing we receive. May you have a healthy and prosperous 2017 ahead of you and your family my dear teachers. Stay blessed. Magandang buhay!

Serving you,

How to Write an Essay on Sally Field Sybil

Essays on Sibyl TV series require knowing the plot structure

Learn what to write in your essay on Sally Field Sybil topic to compose a substantial and exhaustive paper. The following post gives plenty of tips.

How to Write an Essay on Sally Field Sybil

Although, essays on the known TV series might seem to be an easy task to fulfill at first, there are occasions when an in-depth study of the topic is required to highlight some remarkable facts of actors’ biography. A famous American television miniseries Sybil is just the case. Sally Field acquired a role, which seemed to reflect lots of her personal dramas and to uncover her full potential as an actress.

Her complex and dramatic character was unveiled in the best way possible making viewers deeply sympathize with the turmoil she suffered. The following post will try to cover some key aspects of an essay devoted to this series.

Biography

After you’ve finished the introduction part it is recommended that you mention some biographical facts your readers might find peculiar. One should stress that Sally Field grew up in the family where quarrels and fights between mother and stepfather were quite a frequent issue.

This period of life had left an abiding mark in Sally’s memory but, at the same time, helped her to fully embrace a future role. Many critics admit that Sally Field Sybil wouldn’t be played so perfectly if the actress didn’t fall into her role. It was more than just playing Sybil, it was becoming Sybil.

Movies and Series Featuring Sally Field

Speaking of essays on TV series topics, a paper of this sort should contain the exhaustive information about the roles and movies an actor or actress featured in. This helps readers to get a clear picture of actor’s professional experience, same as his/her path to the glory and general recognition.

For Sally Field the fame came after she had played the lead role in the known sitcom Gidget of 1965. It was the start point of her future career as an actress. Further years paved the way for the roles in the movies and series like

  • The Flying Nun (Elsie Ethrington)
  • Smokey and the Bandit (Carrie/’Frog’)
  • Norma Rae (Norma Rae)
  • Places in the Heart (Edna Spalding)

It is notable that in the period from 90’s to 00’s Sally worked behind the scene as a film director and didn’t show up on the screen much. The only remarkable role that she had was Miranda Hillard in the comedy Mrs. Doutfire, which is still thought to be one of the best family movies.

Sybil

This part of your work should concentrate exactly on her character in the 1976 TV series Sybil. You may draw a parallel between the other roles of an actress and make your own claims regarding the things making her an all-round person. It is, surely, your choice what to focus on.

As one probably knows, Sally Field played a woman named Sybil who suffered from dissociative identity disorder. As the story develops, a viewer discovers that the woman has multiple personalities ‘living’ inside her.

Naturally, this fact leads to the occurrence of drama and total inability to live a normal social life. One personality exchanges the other and some of those are capable of doing harm to Sybil, but the woman seems to not know about that.

When analyzing such a complex character or, better to say, a number of characters played by one and the same person one, surely, needs to pay close attention to the backgrounds causing this kind of disorder.

As some people say, things happen for a reason, and Sybil’s life was not an exception. It is expected that you carefully study the woman’s relationships with her mother and make your own conclusions regarding the matter as it appears to be an important aspect to cover.

In closing, we’d like to add that writing a substantial essay on a mentioned TV series topic might probably require watching all of the seasons of a given movie. If you skip some particular parts you might miss an important plot component that is needed to better understand a character, as well as her motives and rueful feelings.

When you start composing your essay try to take a complex approach to unveiling the character. Think what you’d feel while experiencing the same turmoil and you’ll know what aspects to highlight.

As of writing, the video has already been viewed 22 thousand times and is being shared continuously. Teachers and other Facebook users who have watched the video urged Sir Ryan to send the video to the higher authorities to let them know of such situation our fellow teachers from Bukidnon are currently facing, everyday.

Unparalleled Devotion to Service

Teaching, among all other professions, probably is the most demanding job there is but it’s also one the most rewarding job one can have. The video below only proves how much sacrifice we are willing to do in our efforts to provide quality education to our pupils.

On a sad note, it is a MUST for our government to be enlightened about the sacrifices of teachers and aid them in whatever way they can to lessen situations like these wherein teachers risk their own lives on their way to school.

All credits goes to Sir Ryan Pugales for the video footage. His original post can be seen here.

Please share this article so we can spread the message and make the higher authorities in our department be aware of this. Thank you.
