PhilPost releases 2019 National Teachers’ Month stamp
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) released new stamps to celebrate the 11th year of National Teachers’ Month from September 05 to October 05, 2019.
The special se-tenant pair (two different designs and face value join together) stamps depict the logo of “My Teacher, My Hero”, “Excellent!”, and “Thank you, teacher” stamped on the outreached hand of a teacher. The hand in the stamp is being described as the teacher stamped with a seal of Excellence for being our heroes and helping reach our dreams.
Some of the strategies that a teacher will do to inspire her student to excel is by stamping the hand with a star whenever they do something good in school. A teacher will surely award a student with a star.
This year’s theme is “I Teach, That’s My Superpower”. The Metrobank Foundation, Inc. and the Department of Education (DepEd) are in partnership with PHLPost and other organizations to uphold the initiative of giving back due recognition for teachers as humble heroes shaping the minds of the nation. Through PHLPost annual “Salamat Po Letter Writing Competition”, students are encouraged to recognize their teachers and other role models through the art of letter-writing.
The stamps and official first Day covers of “2019 National Teachers’ Month” will be available at the Philatelic Counter, Manila and Metro Manila Post Offices, Postal Area 4, San Pablo, Postal Area 7 Davao and Postal Area 8, Cagayan De Oro City. Graphic Artist Rodine Teodoro designed the 2019 Teachers’ stamp.
