Hanggang ngayon ba, mababa ang tinggin ng mga tao sa mga teachers? Noong bata pa ako, oo. Pag di ka masyadong matalino, ia-advice sa iyo ng mga tao, mag-teacher ka "na lang." Yong "na lang" na yon, may pangme-menos. Actually, noong bagong graduate ako sa high school (2nd honorable mention ako sa batch namin so di naman ako bobo), kung tinanong lang ako ng tatay ko kung ano ang gusto kong kunin, ang isasagot ko, teacher. Kaso di ako tinanong. Gusto nya raw akong maging doktor. So, ayon, nakatapos ...more

Ito ay sumasalamin sa kalagayan ng ating mga guro sa Pilipinas. Ang nobelang ito ay tungkol sa pag-iibigan nina Amelita at Mauro, kay Aling Rosa (ina ni Amelita) na numero-unong tutol sa pagiging guro at pagpili ng katipan na guro ni Amelita, at higit sa lahat ang kadakilaan at kahalagahan ng mga guro sa ating pamayanan.Sa pagbabasa ng nobelang ito, may mga napansin akong katangian o kaugalian bawat kabanata at ng mga katauhan.

Una, ang tingin sa propesyon ng pagtuturo. Pinakapipitagang trabaho a

Now, I do think this is one of my favorite out of all the Filipino novels. I love how it's based on the life of two struggling teachers in love. Wait, I got that right, right? (I admit, I did love the idea of being a teacher when I was young but now, not really.) So, this book is a great read. I love how Liwayway A. Arceo wrote the story although I don't remember much of it. It is really inspiring if you think of it. It can touch a reader's heart. So I am very looking forward to reading this boo ...more

ang pagiging titser ay hindi isang propesyon kung saan sinasabing pasinin niya ang buong bayan . sumasalamin ito sa buhay ng ating mga Pilipino . hindi sa habambuhay hindi dapat ang ating mga magulang ang pipili ng landas na ating tatahakin . hindi man ito katulad ng propesyon ng ibang kapatid ni Amelita, pinahalagahan pa rin nito ang kanyang magulang.

Tanda ko ang librong ito mula sa aking kabataan. Ang kulet lang dahil binasa ko ang librong ito dahil kailangan kong gumawa ng book report sa Filipino subject. At di naman ako nagsisi na pinili ko ang Titser. Sa title pa lang, alam mo na kung tungkol saan ang istorya ng nobela - sa titser at sa kanyang mga struggles sa kanyang pamilya, buhay pag-ibig at propesyon. Nakakatuwa. Marami kang matututunan. Go pinoys! :)

It emphasizes the stereotypical life of a teacher. You might find different Filipino values and culture written by Arceo. You will perceive different lessons about love, family relations and the wonderful things you can do being passionate in your own career. It doesn't matter if your profession have it's low salary what matters is if you love what you are doing and you are happy doing it. Do your passion and success will follow.

I picked this up five days after I bought it from the racks of Ateneo Press last Vday.
I wanted to read a Pinoy book since I've noticed I haven't read much Phil Lit recently. I thought this will be one quick read but I ended up finishing it five months after. And it's small and thin!!!

More thoughts to come.

One of the few literary pieces that were written by a fellow Filipino, I must say that Liwayway Arceo is a very talented writer. The novel is about the struggles of a teacher, who, after fighting for what she loves, finally redeemed her name. A must read!

I appreciate teachers and everything but this is not my type of book at all. I read this for school. 'tis all.
