Mayor Isko Moreno has called on daycare teachers in Manila to stretch their tolerance and patience to the limit owing to their huge responsibilities.
This call was made by Moreno as he spoke to the teachers in City Hall, where he also reminded them that they serve as their pupils’ second parents.
‘Kayo ay kabilang o kasama na humuhulma sa kabataang Manilenyo. Kayo ang humuhulma sa mga susunod na nanay, tatay o lider ng bansa kaya sana ay habaan ninyo ang inyong pasensiya,’ he said
The mayor added: ‘ Naturally, makulit talaga ang mga ‘yan kasi bata. That’s why they need guidance...it’s all up to you now. Malaki ang part ninyo bilang second parents.’
He also assured the teachers that no one will be removed just because of political inclinations or beliefs.
On the other hand, he requested them not to allow their political preferences get in the way of their jobs.
The mayor called for cooperation and unity, stressing this is what he needs from all Manilans right now to get the city back up on its feet.
