2008 Teacher's Day e-Newsletter

03 Oct 2008

Dear Friend,

Each one of us, in one way or another, is a teacher.

If we are
parents, we teach our values to our kids. If we have younger siblings, we teach them how to behave by the way we act towards them. At school, we are teachers and students not only in academics but also about relationships, responsibilities, excellence and many more things.

The question is not if we are teachers or not but if we are good teachers. We know a g
ood teacher when we see one. He is the one who is patient with us when we find it most difficult to learn. Let's pay tribute to the good teachers in all of us!

Teacher's Day on October 5, 2008!

One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child. ~Author Unknown

Motivational Teacher Quotes

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists.
Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit. - John SteinbeckWe must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but as candles to be lit. - Robert H. Shaffer

ost great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure. -Napoleon HillJudge each day, not by the harvest, but by the seeds you plant.Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
Tell me and I will forget,
Show me and I will learn,

Involve me and I will understand
- Teton La
kota (Indian saying)

You from the Tutors!

We want to thank those of you who have responded to our call for children's storybooks and workbooks!

The kids we are tutoring are so blessed! A small group of tutors goes to Brgy. Bungad every other saturday to tutor around 10 or so gradeschool scholars of He Cares Foundation. Many thanks as well to Bgy. Captain Ricky Corpuz wh
o allows us to use the barangay premises for our tutorials.

He is also fixing up a room for us to set up a barang
ay library where the kids can stay and practice their reading (which they really need to do!).

This is a very simple yet meaningful activity for any small group of people and
we hope it will make a difference in the lives of these very bright children! They just need a helping hand and more than any academic superiority, we are giving them the encouragement to keep on keeping on!If you want to donate more books, just address them to Christina and drop them off at any Papemelroti branch. It will be part of our new library! If you want to be one of our tutors, simply reply to this e-mail with the word "TUTOR" in the subject line and we will include you in our tutors listing.

Tips for Ordering for Christmas Stock

1. See the products listed in New Products Page or What's in Stock pages of our website to get a good idea of what is presently in stock.

2. Order now for your stock of wall calendars and planners. Don't order too much. Just have a good quantity enough to offer your regular customers.
3. The best thing you can do for your business is to have a listening ear to your customers! Ask them what they want to see in your shop. Ask them what their budget is for their gift giving. You'll have a better idea of what to order.

4. Order a good bulk quantity of items below P50 as these always get sold fast, sometimes to just one person!

5. Be sure to have enough variety in your store to make the mix interesting. Be sure to arrange the products in an inviting and appealing manner!
