Teachers are poor professionals today: An honest confession

Teachers are poor professionals today: An honest confession

Teachers are poor professionals in the making ever since. In the world of professionals, teachers are one of the poorest out there. It is not a joke but a fact. It is inevitable and as the years pass by, the harder it is for teachers to rise again.

Why are teachers poor professionals? The fact that they have salary every month yet they still can’t save money. Their salary every month is already budgeted and not enough. When the salary of teachers in other countries are promising, here in our country isn’t.

Teachers are poor professionals when they don’t enjoy their salary that well. You can’t expect them to save much from their salary every month. Most of them have huge loans from private lending institutions. These loans add up to the burden they carry every month. But, what choice do they have? Their salary is not enough so they resort to taking up loans.

Teachers are poor professionals because their compensation did not match up. They are over-qualified for their position yet remained underpaid. They hoped that this country can give them the fairest salary a teacher could have. Other Asian countries can do it but not in our country, why?

Teachers are poor professionals when they are being used yet they are not valued. They sacrificed a lot for their profession but it seemed unnoticed. All their lives they are willing to risk for their service yet no one saw their worth. The fact that they are present yet always not given credits. The only thing that will make our teachers happy is a fair salary like teachers in other Asian countries.

Teachers are poor professionals yet they manage to stay calm amidst all challenges. Today when all are rising, the price of commodities and all, teachers are struggling. Inflation rate is on another level and the salaries remain the same. Teachers and all other professionals out there are also in struggle. The only thing that would help them is if the higher officials will do their part in battling poverty. Give our teachers the best salary they deserve.Alec | Helpline PH

  1. Nakakadegrade ng teaching profession ang nasa article , Are u sure that all teachers are poor? and having many loans as a resort? if you want to help the teachers for salary increase dont degrade them , if dat is not ur point then rephrase or make another word for the “poor” word that the article is talking about.thank you

    1. It is not degrading but reality. Siguro mayrong mayayaman na guro dahil partner o asawa nila malaki sahod o may business. Hindi naman nakakahiyang tawaging mahirap na guro kami. Pero di ba insulto sa government na may mga empleyado silang nagdudusa sa kahirapan dahil lahat naman ng oras namin naa sa trabaho. Lahat ng ginagawa namin by number. Kung pwede lang mag lako ng isda habang nagtuturo gawin ko yon lalo na ngayon may college na ako. Pero hindi pwede dahil pag uwi sa bahay sa dami ng trabaho patay na katawan ko. D pwedeng mageklamo. Walang karapatang mageklamo. Trabaho lang ng trabaho. Sana nga mapansin na kami sa government natin. Baka promises na naman yan. Marami na kaming naipong pako sa bahay sa kakapromise.

  2. Salary increase pra sana guro.Pra pag retiro kming mga guro may aasahan kmi laging kawawa ang guro pangangakoan tpos mapapako lng pla hndi na nakkabuhay ang sahod nming mga guro lagi nlng iniiisp kng saan kkuha ng pangkain ng mga anak pang byad sa tuition fee ng anak sa pamasahe ng anak ppapasok sa school pangbayd sa upa sa bahay kuryente at tubig.maawa nman kyo sa aming mga guro ngturo kmi para makatapos ng pag aaral ang mga anak nyo pro mga anak nmin di nmin mapatpos dhl sa kakulangan sa sahod .Tao rin kmi may pamilyang umaasa may mga anak magulang kapatid pamilya na kailngan nmin supporthan . kya din kmi ngtratrabaho ay para sa kinabukasan ng mga anak sa pangangilangan nmin basic needs ng pamiya nmin. Ang dadag benepisyo o alwance ay hndi sapat kng hndi delayed tinatanggal pa , samantalang ang sahod fix na buwan buwan mattanggap ng guro pra sa pamilya nla. tao kmi na may basic needs na kailngan , npapagod , may obligasyon hndi lng sa paaralan lalong lalo na may obligasyon kmi sa aming pamilya at mg anak. Pbb ng mmsan 2yrs delayed ang allawances na yan delayed lagi mnsan pera na nmin inuutang pa at tinutubuan pa. ang sahod nmin sa utang ang bilis kaltasin pro pag ererimite na sa pinag utangan delayed ibgay kya si teacher ayun imbes na matapos ay tubo lng nabaayran dhl delayed kyo mag remiite . Sana nman pakinggan nyo kming mga guro bago mahuli ang lahat at lhat ng guro ay sa ibang bansa nlngagtrabaho. Sinsbi ko ito dhl di ko akalain ang isang noble na trabaho ang syang magpapababa ng dignidad ng mga guro dhl sa dami ng utang pra sa pamilya at sa knyang propesyon . Mnsan si teacher pa gumagastos sa classroom pra gumanda ito at umayos. Ang gamit na kailnga ay si teacher iloloan upang makasabay sa hinihiling ng ahensya . Mr pres. At mam Vp alam ko po na kyo ay may mapagmahal na puso at maunawain puso sana pakinggan nyo kming mga guro na hnggang sa huling hininga ay hrap at dusa ang tanging nagiging pamana ng ating ahensya sa aming mga guro hngang sa si guro ay tumanda. Hiling lng po nmin ma pakinggan ang aming hinaing at naway maunawaan nyo ang aming hrap na dinadanas. YES TO SALARY GRADE 15 ….
