“First of all, I would like to thank the Lord Almighty for giving me such an opportunity to be in De La Salle for 33 successive years in good health condition. I also would like to thank these good people who served as my inspiration during my long stay here: Bro Jaime de Guzman who accepted me to teach here, Mr. Danilo Silva, my former P.E. Department Head, and most especially Mrs. Erlina de Jesus who had been my Practical Arts Department Head and mentor. My special thanks also to all the members of the TLE Department and its Curriculum Coordinator Ms Edlyn Ebreo.
For the blessings of education of my three children and the teaching faculty that I earned during my teaching career, I owe De La Salle Lipa an attitude of gratitude.”
