Cagayan De Oro Mayor Oscar S. Moreno, expressed the local government’s commitment to continue supporting DepEd programs and activities. He recognizes teacher’s effort in molding the minds of every child that’s why teachers should be honored everyday.
Teachers were so excited to listen the words of our Secretary of Education, Leonor Magtolis-Briones about the updates of our department. She mentioned on the expansion of Teachers positions. She said: “Sabi ng mga teacher, nag uumpisa silang Teacher 1, forever Teacher 1 nalang sila, hanggang pumanaw na sila sa ibang dimension. Maghihintay pa na may mag re-retire, maghihintay pa na may pupunta sa ibang bansa.”
That’s why they proposed the Expansion of Teacher’s position. She added: “Ngayon ang proposal namin na imbes na Teacher I,II,III positions, hindi makagalaw masyado dahil maghihintay pa kung kailan pa kaya pupunta sa ibang planeta itong matandang ito, para naman mkamove ako sa TII or III, ito ang proposal namin.”
The Department is proposing to add to the present Teachers 1, Teacher 2 and Teacher 3 position with a new positions of Teacher 4, Teacher 5, Teacher 6 and Teachers 7, with their corresponding higher salary grades.
Teacher 1 to Teacher 7 will have a salary Grade of Salary Grade 11-17, while MT-1 is Salary Grade 18, Master Teacher II-V is Salary Grade 19-22 as well as Principal 1-IV.
For sure, teachers from all over the country will be asking questions regarding this matter. How about you? What can you say about this proposal?
