Many teachers resigned from their positions at present
So, there are many teachers who resigned from their positions at present. I get to view the “My Day” of one of my closest college friend and a teacher as well today. She was trying to make a quick pose on some alleys in the U.S with her husband. I was shock to know that she actually resigned as a teacher already.
This is not the first time that my friends went abroad to find a greener pasture. I also have another teacher friend who went to Australia before Covid19 hits the world. She also resigned from her post as a teacher.
This is what I realized when I look back the number of my friends who gave up their long loved profession. My thoughts were running wild as well because I myself have also wanted to try my luck abroad like them
There are many reasons why teachers resigned from their positions but one reason is for sure. It is to earn more, to find a higher salary abroad. We all know that the salary of a teacher in our country cannot suffice the needs of the family. It is not enough to cover all the expenses and the tuitions of the children.
Sooner or later, we will lose many of our most skillful teachers. If our government can give what is due to teachers, then this won’t happen. Imagine that only the Philippines is one country that has the lowest salary in the ASEAN.
If opportunities knock at our doors, for sure we will grab it. It is like with teachers as well. When opportunities to work abroad will be demanding, then it will be a goodbye. Teachers in other Asian countries like Thailand are way more promising. They said that in Thailand, if your wallet doesn’t have 10K baht then you are not a teacher. Thailand teachers posted it online. They always have money in their wallets.
We hope that our government will now give the teachers their plea for years. Let us not give another reason for teachers to leave our very own country for good. To those teachers who resigned from their positions to work abroad, you have a very good choice. After all, we work to survive, not survive to work. – Clea | Helpline PH
