Our beloved partners in education for nation-building, on behalf of my family and everyone from REX Book Store, I wish to express my sincerest gratitude for this occasion. My heart is full being amidst ASCD officials and all of you educators from my own country, the Philippines, and from all over the world. We have been very fortunate to be collaborating with ASCD for almost a decade now. We regularly join conferences and embark on continuous learning as we yearn to be better at being of service to our learners… to each child.
Every encounter with each educator is such joy. Each of you is an inspiration.. passionate individuals who dedicate their lives moulding our world’s future. We have made our life ABOUT EACH CHILD and how we could secure his success. Our children are our world’s most valuable resource… our hope for a better world. We share the same belief… the same mission. And we share the same intention to put our vision into action. And we shall be relentless at this.
We are excited to what the future holds, with stronger ties with ASCD, our partner educators, industries, communities and the parents… we are excited with what we can do together to further progress our commitment to the child, to our world… a whole child for the whole world.
