On September 22 we celebrated our 2nd annual fundraiser. Once again we indulged ourselves with amazing concoctions created by the imaginative Barchef Toronto and marveled at the creativity of Chef Riley Bennett, a professor at George Brown school of hospitality and culinary art. We are extremely thankful for all the hard work our volunteers has put into making the event such a great success. We are also grateful to our generous sponsors, Systems for Research and VWR, as well as all those who have donated auction items to benefit our cause. And finally, we are fortunate to have you all as our supporters throughout the years, helping us reaching over 2,000 teachers and over 200,000 children across the world!

Why am I a teacher?

Teaching is a very challenging yet fulfilling profession. It brings out the best in you in facing the day to day situation so that you may be able to cope up with a lot of things be it on students’ behavior, lack of instructional materials, additional report, ancillary work or financial matters. I chose to teach because my life had been touched by some of my teachers in elementary, high school and college. I want to do the same with any of my students and make a difference. And I want to thank #puebloscience for giving me the chance to participate in one of their summer camps wayback 2014 at UPOU. This was a very enjoyable one and I can say I have learned a lot from it and I actually used some of the activities from the camp in my classes. Thank you and hope to be a participant again in the future.
