They say that it takes a whole village to raise a child and the teacher is our greatest partner when raising a whole child and preparing them for their future.
With the pace of how fast the technology has become, it’s not enough for teacher to just learn the basic of teaching and knowledge. Teachers need to equip themselves not just with the knowledge that they learn from the four walls of the school but need to update themselves with others training that would help in guiding their students. Teaching is not all about books anymore, they also need to interact and get the attention of the students.
Last week, we meet the people behind REAP whose goal is to be the partners of the educators
What is REAP?
Resource for Educators and Academic Professionals (REAP), a professional training company that aims to take learning to a greater height by developing the skills of the 21st century Filipino educators. It was first launched in 2016
“The main drive of REAP is teacher development because as we all know, the success of the students of the nation depends on them. We want REAP to be the partners of educators in nation building,” said Danda Crimelda Buhain, REAP co-founder.
“Before, educators, with the support of their sponsor schools, must go abroad to the United States, Canada or Europe to undergo further training. With REAP, we are making training opportunities accessible for teachers to learn more about their craft. Now they won’t need to go overseas,” the REAP co-founder.
To help produce high caliber educators with contemporary teaching concepts, a modern REAP center in Quezon City was set up. It is complete with facilities so that educators from the teaching industry, local governments, and public and private school organizations can undergo customized training.
“Early on, most of our clients comes from the private schools. Now, we are looking to expand further to public schools because that’s where majority of Filipino students are enrolled. We also hope to get the support of LGU units to make REAP more successful, by sponsoring public school educators avail of our programs,” said Buhain.
Through these specialized courses, REAP visualizes a creation of a nation founded firmly on quality.
“These set of trainings will certainly help our teachers, especially now, with the implementation of the K to 12 program. We need to plug the holes in the teaching methodologies. Our real objective is to help the teachers, so they can maximize their potentials in teaching our kids and better prepare them to build tomorrow’s nation” explained Buhain.
REAP is in partnership with REX Publishing and Spady & Uy, the ground breaker of Outcome-Based Education.
Remember, teachers are also learners
