VIRAL: Teacher inspires students by letting them choose their morning greeting



MANILA, Philippines – A teacher is going viral for her unique way of greeting her students everyday.

For Teacher Girlie Laguerta Dela Cruz, handling kinder students require a certain kind of patience and love. Because she is dealing with young kids, separation anxiety from their parents usually happens, especially during the first day of school.

Teacher Girlie said these young students need to feel a sense of belongingness when they enter the school.

Thus, the creative teacher came up with a unique way of greeting her students everyday. The students would line up and before they enter, they would choose the type of greeting to Teacher Girlie.

Teacher inspires students by letting them choose their morning greeting
Kudos, Teacher Girlie!

Students can choose from heart for a hug, a high 5, a handshake or a fist bump from a chart she made.

Teacher Girlie said she started the initiative because she wanted her students to feel comfortable in school.

She said, "Para po maramdaman ng mga bata yung belongingness sa school. Lalo na po sa aming mga kinder teachers, mahirap po sa first day of class na may mga batang umiiyak."

The kind teacher said she has seen the improvement and positive reaction of the morning greeting to her students.

"Noong ginawa ko po ito, nakitaan ko po ng excitement sa pagpasok ang mga bata. Ayaw na po nila nag-aabsent, lalo na po yung mga madalas ma-late, kasi di sila nakaka-touch sa chart namin," Teacher Girlie said.

Teacher Girlie shared that her chart of morning greeting is now a very important part of her students' school life.

She explained, "Kasi yung meaning pa lang po noong bawat symbols dun sa chart malaking epekto na sa bata. Yung pag yakap mo sa kanila, ang hawak ng kamay, ramdam na po nila yung love ni teacher sa kanila."

"Lalong higit yung halaga nila, maganda gawin ito sa simula ng klase kasi matatapos yung klase namin ng masaya," Teacher Girlie said.

The video has gone viral after netizens lauded the teacher's care for her students. It has been viewed by 8.9 million times and shared over 100,000 times.

DOLE orders probe on GMA about Eddie Garcia’s tragic accident



MANILA, Philippines – Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Silvestre Bello has instructed that a probe be done on the late Eddie Garcia's accident while taping for a TV series of GMA Network.
DOLE orders probe on GMA about Eddie Garcia’s tragic accident

Secretary Bello instructed the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC) to investigate if there were violations made on rules and standards.

"Need bigyan value workplace ng workers, napakahalaga ‘yun (There's a need to give value workplace of workers, that's very important),” he said.

Under the OSH Law, employers should provide a safe and healthful workplace. Workers should be given the full protection against all hazards and dangers while at work. Employers have a responsibility to ensure their workplace is free from hazardous conditions likely to cause death, illness, or physical harm to workers.

Bello confirmed the investigation is ongoing. He said, "[It’s not] DOLE, but the Occupational Safety and Health Center, executive director Noel Binag. Ongoing na.”

The movie icon passed away at the age of 90, days after falling into a coma. Garcia tripped on cable wires and sustained cervical fracture while filming an action scene in a GMA TV series.

Rest in peace, Sir Eddie Garcia!
Rest in peace, Sir Eddie Garcia!

The Directors’ Guild of the Philippines Inc. (DGPI) has issued a statement commenting that Garcia's death is a sad reminder for networks to protect their artists.

DGPI described Garcia's death as “a sad and urgent reminder to the film and television industries that safety protocols at work and on set are of paramount importance.”

Meanwhile, GMA already released a statement that they are conducting an investigation on the tragic mishap that cost the life of their actor.

Statement reads, "it has been the Network's practice to have medical personnel and ambulance crew on standby whenever the production is executing big action scenes during taping. This has been likewise the practice of other GMA programs. Given this, we are currently investigating the absence of a medical team on the set on June 8."

"GMA Network is deeply saddened with what happened to Mr. Eddie Garcia and the management is committed to getting to the bottom of this unfortunate incident," the statement ended.
