REACH­ING ONE’S PO­TEN­TIALS

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

BLESILDA D. NAJERA

We con­stantly remind our stu­dents to do their best so that they will ex­cel aca­dem­i­cally and skill­fully. This is in re­la­tion to con­sid­er­ing their per­sonal en­deav­ors. For them to be­come suc­cess­ful in the com­ing fu­ture, they have to act now and start in their ed­u­ca­tion. In­vest­ment in ed­u­ca­tion will have a long term re­sult that is why send­ing chil­dren to school is a right. It is a prepa­ra­tion for them to have a brighter fu­ture ahead of them.

As men­tors, we guide our stu­dents to help them reach their high­est po­ten­tials. And that is to al­low them to do their ut­most ca­pa­bil­i­ties to achieve progress. Progress in the sense of im­prov­ing in all as­pects for their own per­sonal ben­e­fit with­out caus­ing any harm and in the long run will lead to an up­right mode of liv­ing.

Stu­dents have var­ied abil­i­ties. They have dif­fer­ent ways of ac­com­plish­ing tasks. They have their own mind to think of so­lu­tions to problems. They have ex­pe­ri­ences at home that could some­how show their iden­tity and il­lus­trate the kind of up­bring­ing they are in. Nev­er­the­less, what­ever cir­cum­stance they are in, our stu­dents are to be trained to strive for progress, to im­prove the sit­u­a­tion that is hap­pen­ing in their life at the mo­ment and in the com­ing fu­ture. Some may not be able to achieve per­fec­tion as we guide our stu­dents but we have to make sure that we help them ac­com­plish their goals in life like the ob­jec­tives that we need to achieve in our daily lessons.

We may not pro­duce per­fect in­di­vid­u­als from the reg­u­lar learn­ers but in­stead we are also doing our best to help our stu­dents ex­cel in their own abil­i­ties and skills that would al­low them to be­come re­spon­si­ble and pro­duc­tive ci­ti­zens of the coun­try. We should con­tin­u­ously dis­cover the po­ten­tials of our stu­dents for all of them have the abil­ity and right to progress, to im­prove their lives, and help in the de­vel­op­ment of the hu­man race.
