|A Poinsettia for Dr. Abrea|
We all have heroes or someone we admire most. We all have best friends, best buddies, best teachers, best instructors. They are those who we will always look up to because they have imparted much for being who we are today.
As a PNUan, I consider myself lucky because I have been under the tutelage of mentors who never stop learning to become the best in the field and more importantly, they too, go an extra mile to become not just teachers but "nanays" , sisters, friends and even "kumares".
Today, DR. ADELYNE M. COSTELO - ABREA, the current Executive Director of Philippine Normal University - Agusan Campus, celebrates her birthday and I join with the whole bunch of her students (the present and the former ones), friends, colleagues, relatives and family in wishing her blessings on this very happy occasion.
William Arthur Ward once quoted, "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires". Indeed, you aren't just a good teacher nor a superior teacher for many PNUans but a great teacher for you have inspired us to excel as set by your own example.
All the best Ma'am Bebote. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
