Breathe yourself to calm, dear teacher… It is saddening to read about teachers ending their lives. It not only tells us that it is a difficult job. It also reflects that oddly enough, even though a teacher is surrounded by people, the profession can be a lonely one. Let’s breathe and calm down. Then say a prayer.

There was one from Leyte, earlier this year, around March. Another one from Leyte, the neophyte teacher, Emmylou. And then, here is another from a private school, Ateneo de Naga.
