TEACHING RESOURCES, LATEST EDUCATIONAL NEWS AND ARTICLES ABOUT TEACHING
To further enhance the craft of the teachers, we provide teaching materials and educational resources that help teachers and students share more applied and available information to their colleagues. We also give updates on the what’s and why’s of the field of education.
OPINIONS AND VIEWS ABOUT THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN THE PHILIPPINES
For teachers’ voices to be heard, we give the teachers around the country a chance to express and exchange their opinions in a fair manner through the use of online forums and discussion.
As a professional learning community, we aspire to give information and create teachers’ discussion online that requires continuous improvement, promotes collective responsibility, and supports the alignment of individual, team, school, and school system goals.
We want teachers to interact regularly and frequently to engage in collaborative professional learning to strengthen their practice and increase student results because we believe that TeacherPH’s learning community members are accountable to one another to achieve the shared goals of the school and school system and work in transparent, authentic settings that support their improvement.
The participation of every teacher in all educational discussions here on TeacherPH advances the goals of the whole country’s educational system. Communities of caring, analytic, reflective, and inquiring educators collaborate to learn what is necessary to increase student learning. In TeacherPH’s learning community, members exchange feedback about their practice with one another, visit each other’s classrooms or work settings, and share resources. Learning community members strive to refine their collaboration, communication, and relationship skills to work within and across both internal and external systems to support student learning. They develop norms of cooperation and relational trust and employ processes and structures that unleash expertise and strengthen the capacity to analyze, plan, implement, support, and evaluate their practice.
It all began when the two opinionated fourth-year high school students of Antipolo National High School named Mark and Roselyn watched a documentary film about the terrible conditions of the students and teachers in the remote areas of the Philippines. The two have since then exchanged their views on the importance of the educational system of the Philippines. They were so passionate about the field that they promised to join someday and even create a publication about the critical issues in the country.
To make the story short, the two kept communicating online after graduation and kept exchanging views on different issues. In 2010, Mark created Astigtayo.com which is an online forum of Filipinos in and out of the country. The website tackled different issues concerning the situation of the Philippines and gathered almost half a million followers. Rmae also published articles on Astigtayo.com voicing out the trends and concerns in the field of teaching.
As many members of the forum supported the stimulating articles written by himself and Rmae, Mark decided to turn down the website and started a new one.
TeacherPH was then born on October 17, 2014. From then, it started getting attention from teachers nationwide. TeacherPH was able to provide information for teachers published on the Department of Education’s website. It also began to connect the teachers nationwide via online forums. The news and feature articles published on the site are based on the different opinions and concerns voiced out by teachers nationwide.
Seeing the potential of the website as an online professional learning community, Mr. Francis Kenneth D. Hernandez, CAR-PhD, joined the team in 2016 and is now working as the administrator of TeacherPH to continuously voice out concerns and help teachers and aspiring ones grow in their field.
Now, TeacherPH is known as the fastest online professional learning community for teachers and by the teachers. Hundreds are joining the online forum every day, and thousands of teachers meet dynamic people like them every day.
Recently, TeacherPH was featured by United States-based websites for its excellent articles about the teacher protection policy act.
We keep inspiring and helping the people in our field! So join us now! Let’s educate and inspire together!
