teachers recognized

Teachers Margarita Infante, Aireen Gedorio, Glody Castillon, and Cecilia Del Rosario were recognized as the first recipients of the   In Loco Parentis Award   during the annual Personnel Institutional Assembly, for meriting the highest overall efficiency performance ratings for academic year 2015-2016 of La Consolacion College Bacolod, a press release from the school said.

The teachers received the highest excellent and superior rating from among their peers in their categories: Infante for the administrator's category, Gedorio for the full-time college teachers, Del Rosario for the full-time IS teachers, and Castillon for the part-time teachers across all academic levels.

The four awardees hold relatively long records of service with LCC Bacolod. Infante has served the institution for almost 30 years now while Gedorio and Del Rosario have served LCCB for almost 20 years already. Gedorio teaches undergraduate courses in the HM and Tourism programs, while Del Rosario teaches in the elementary. Both are alumnae of the institution, the press release said.

Vice President for Academic Affairs, Randdie Cuelo, said it was just fitting that teachers should be recognized for their hard work, diligence and commitment to teaching and mentoring.

“Teaching is not an easy job. It is a humanitarian work. Our teachers do things beyond the call of duty, and that is something which shouldn't go unnoticed, we have to acknowledge our teachers,” said Cuelo, who was among the roster of excellent teachers that day but inhibited himself from receiving the award, the press release said.

Taken from the Latin phrase to mean “ in the place of a parent” , In Loco Parentis Award   honors the noble role teachers play in the process of transforming the lives of students. The recipients of the recognition are determined by the Academic Affairs Office, in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Personnel and Ancillary Support Services.

The awardees are the first set of honorees to be inducted into the   In Loco Parentis Award Hall of Fame, the press release added.*
