Accompanied by Mayor James “Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. and some DepEd Olongapo officials, Eva Imingan, Teacher II from Nellie E. Brown Elementary School (NEBES) Olongapo City received a medallion of recognition from President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the conferment ceremonies of this year’s Metrobank Foundation Ten Most Outstanding Teachers at the Malacañang Palace last September 5.

Also distinguished by Dr. George S.K. Ty, Chairman of Metrobank Group and Metrobank Foundation, Aniceto Sobrepeña, President of Metrobank Foundation, Inc., Teresita Leonardo de Castro, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines, Jeslie Lapus, Secretary of the Department of Education and Emmanuel Angeles, Chairman of the Commission on Higher Education, the said event recognizes the efforts and commitment of the country’s top mentors.

Imingan is chosen by the Metrobank Foundation as one of the bests due to her passion and dedication as an educator. As an English teacher for ten years, Imingan considers that her biggest responsibility is to promote reading and comprehension. In order to achieve this, she conducted researches on reading difficulties and has developed improvised teaching devices called the Reading Remediation Series. This technique uses teaching materials such as big books, charts and flashcards that helped improved the reading comprehension of her students. Imingan also spearheaded the establishment of the Extensive Reading Center (ERC) at NEBES where wide varieties of reading materials and learning tools are made available to students and teachers. This model teacher also reached out to the families of students with reading difficulties and her efforts to pursue the progress in reading and comprehension of students resulted to better performance of NEBES in the division, regional and national achievement tests for elementary schools. In fact, NEBES bagged the “Best School Award in Reading” for SY 2006-2007 from the DepED Division Office in Olongapo City.

“ I am so proud that an Olongapeño teacher is chosen as one of the country’s finest educator because Teacher Imingan does not only represent the labors and accomplishments of her school and co-teachers but also the struggle for excellence of her hometown,” said Mayor Gordon.

The Search for Outstanding Teachers represents the Metrobank Foundation's commitment to promote a culture of excellence in education. Since 1985, the foundation has awarded more than 200 exemplary elementary, high school, and college teachers from all over the country.
