CBE IN 2014
2014 Breezed quickly for CBE. Projects like the Global Filipino Teachers Program of Globe Telecom and Project TEACH of City Saving Bank kept the CBE staff on the road during the first quarter of the year to implement the monitoring and evaluation components. We also conducted training workshops for 35 teachers on Project-based Learning and ICT Integration and 30 teachers on Lead Coaching. In the last quarter, CBE made milestones when it was tapped by One Meralco Foundation to conduct a nationwide training for 37 teachers on Content Development. At the close of the year, the 37 content developers produced 352 flashcards on energy ranging from plain knowledge to complex learning activities such as PBL.
Our partnership with the Philippine Information Agency, INTEL Philippines and FIT-Ed gave us opportunity to put forward our advocacy for women empowerment in Kapihan and Film-showing events. 2014 was also our 2nd year to co-implement the Academic Competitions of Mega Cebu. This year also marked the search for the 1st Most Outstanding Mega Cebu Teacher to give accolade to our teachers during teachers month.
CBE also embarked on the Medal of Excellence Award in April recognizing high school and college graduates who have shown academic excellence and leadership in their schools. This year, 6 college and 2 high school students were awarded medals. All of the six college awardees have landed jobs as of this writing.
Our 13th year as an organization was held on August 4 at the Harolds Hotel. Elected to office were Engr. Ruben Laraya of CITE representing the academe sector, Dr. Ulysses Aparece of UC Teachers Association representing the Professional Sector, and Mr. Jojo Ciano of Ardent Networks representing the business sector.
At the end of 2014, CBE has grown to 446 members, with 33 institutional and 413 individual members. This year also saw the highest membership retention average at 91%.
On this note, we thank you dear members for your continued support. We hope that you will continue taking this journey with us towards achieving better education for all.
