I am from Bacolod City – loud (but with a lilting tone) and proud. And so, when I was asked to teach there at our Bacolod office last March 14, I did not hesitate.
There is nothing more rewarding than going back to where you came from and giving back to the community that has helped shape you to become who you a

Now I really understand why teachers teach, and continue to do so even if it takes away too much of themselves. The exchange of love and energy is unmistakable – addictive, even. I am hooked.
