The Bato Balani Foundation Inc (BBFI) in cooperation with Diwa Learning Systems once again open their search for inspiring teachers with the Many Faces of the Teacher program.
The Many Faces of the Teacher searches for role models in the teaching profession who can inspire their fellow educators to excellence. The program seeks to recognize teachers not just for their skills and dedication to their craft, but also for their efforts in making a difference in the lives of their students and communities as well.
By discovering these educators and honoring them, The Many Faces of the Teacher aims to make every Filipino aware of the valuable contribution of the teaching professions to society, thereby encouraging every Filipino mentor to achieve excellence in teaching.
The search is open to teachers of all ages who are actively teaching in private or public primary, elementary or secondary schools, colleges, and universities.

The nominee should also have a deep sense of nationalism and be committed to teaching for the benefit of the country and its people.
Partner organizations such as school associations, religious organizations, Department of Education, and school heads, students, and teachers can nominate.
Nominees will be evaluated on the basis of their integrity and morality; relationships with students, colleagues, community members, and family; commitment and dedication to the teaching vocation; strength of values/principles applied in teaching and personal life and involvement in school and community activities.
