The Metro Bank Foundation, Inc. in coordination with the Department of Education, spearheads the celebration of the National Teachers’ Month (NTM), from September 5 to October 5, 2019, and the National Teacher’s Day on the 5th of October 2019 pursuant to Presidential Proclamation N. 242 (s.2011) and the Republic Act No. 10743 (s. 2016).
The NTM movement started as a small group in 2008 with the simple mission of saying “Thank You” to all Filipino teachers. Through multi-sectoral participation, the advocacy grew into a nationwide movement in recognition of teachers and has become the longest celebration of National Teachers’ Day in the world.
