“Maswerte ang ibang mga batang nagsisipag-aral sa mga private schools. Hindi katulad ng mga bata namin na minsan wala nang oras para maglagi pa sa library para magbasa. Minsan nagmamadali nang umuwi dahil tutulong pa sila sa kanilang mga magulang, magpapakain pa sila ng kanilang mga nakakababatang kapatid, maghahanap-buhay pa sila para sa kanilang pamilya”, laments Mrs. Cecille Marquez, a public school teacher from Marikina High School.
This is the challenge that faces all the public school teachers all over the country. For the assigned librarians, their burdens are doubled because they also handle teaching loads on top of their library responsibility. Good thing that there are still hardworking, resourceful and creative teachers who continue to work harder to ensure that their students will be getting the best education possible.
In an effort to equip our teachers with skills and bolster their potential in creatively harnessing their library, Acts of Hope for the Nation (AHON) Foundation in cooperation with Ateneo de Manila University-Rizal Library conducted a two-day basic librarianship training seminar last April 16-17, 2012.
