Malala Yousafzai a Pakistani activist for female education once said, “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world”.

Teachers are said to be the second parents of children in school. Students spend most of their time in a day with them, thus giving them a huge responsibility in molding the youth of today. They play a critical role in the development of a child hence efforts are made to keep the good quality of teachers public schools have in the city.

The local government together with the city mayor, Hon. Maria Isabelle “Beng”  Climaco Salazar conducted the PET or Professional Enchancement Training for teachers on the 30th of May, 2015 at Centro Latino. The objective of the program is to revisit some of the professional conduct or ethical standards of teachers, about communication skills and financial management techniques. 300 out of 5700 teachers in the city participated in the event.

Christian Olasiman of the City Government of Zamboanga said, “So we are starting this month with one batch. And hopefully, the mayor will support us that in every month we will have one batch of 300 so that we will be able to help our teachers.”

Eric Quisil, a teacher from Bunguiao Elementary School on his thoughts about the program, “Este seminar, okay ste. Kasi after this, pwede kame man apply diamun real life stress management, financial management na diamun vida, applicable gat este. Kabar I hope we will use this knowledge to our real life.” Quisil added that the program has several benefits on their class handling in line with the Balik Eskwela 2015 on the 1st of June.
