Recognizing the important role that teachers play in the country’s development, the PEAC encourages the nominations of teacher role models in the private schools to Bato Balani Foundation’s “The Many Faces of the Teacher” (TMFT), a nationwide search for exemplary teachers that aims to honor their work, raise awareness of their valuable contribution to society, and thereby encourage Filipino teachers to achieve excellence.
The search is open to teachers of all ages who are actively teaching in private or public schools in any education level. The nomination form and other requirements must be sent to the Bato Balani Foundation no later than May 31, 2015. For questions, please contact the Bato Balani Foundation office at (02)892-5462.

In her keynote speech during the general assembly of the Association of Private Schools, Colleges and Universities (APSCU)-Ilocos Norte Chapter held last December 11, Ms. Doris Ferrer assured the responsiveness of the PEAC and its National Secretariat to the needs of the schools, especially in the regions as she discussed the implementation of programs provided for by the E-GASTPE law, particularly the Educational Service Contracting (ESC), and other initiatives of the PEAC to assist the private education sector.
At one point of her talk, the estimated 400 school administrators and teachers applauded the National Secretariat’s proposal that all licensed teachers who are teaching ESC grantees in the participating schools receive the Teacher Salary Subsidy. Since the implementation of TSS in 2009-2010, the subsidy has been given to licensed secondary teachers. The salary subsidy given to qualified teachers is P12,000 per teacher per year.
Mr. Wilfred Malapit, DepEd Supervisor in charge of private schools in the Ilocos Norte division, Fr. Tito Bonoan, Superintendent of Diocesan schools, and Dr. Marina Abella, PEAC Regional Program Coordinator in Region 3 also attended the event.
