MSU Marawi CEd holds first ever pinning ceremony for student teachers


Marawi City, Philippines – The  Mindanao State University – College of Education held its first-ever pinning ceremony for student teachers which marks another  new milestone in the history of the University,  who will be practicing their teaching internship, during the Second Semester of AY 2023-2024. The ceremony was held at the NRDM Function Hall, Awar Street, Basak Malutlut, Marawi City, Ms Hazrah Nihad B. Mipanga  reporter of the Ced  said

The theme for the event was “Empowering Student Teachers with 3C’s – Character, Competence, and Commitment.” The ceremony was attended by student teachers, their parents, and the College of Education officials, including Dean Dr. Minerva-Saminah M. Naga, Assistant Dean Dr. Lotis B. Daguisonan, College Secretary Prof. Cherrilyn N. Mojica, and the Department Chairpersons and faculty. Dr. Amerkhan G. Cabaro, the MSU Marawi Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs also graced the ceremony.

The highlight of the event was the guest speaker, Marawi City Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Anna-Zenaida U. Alonto.

In her message to the attendees, she shared her personal experiences in teaching before she became a superintendent. She also reminded the student teachers to remain compassionate, committed, and responsible in their journeys as future educators.

The pinning ceremony was a significant representation of the pre-service teachers’ passage of the pivotal role as torch-bearers of knowledge. It was a symbol of recognition and acknowledgment of their responsibilities and profound commitment to the field of teaching, as they pledge to uphold the highest standard of integrity, professionalism, and dedication. The reading of the pledge was led by Ms. Hasmin M. Amer.

In addition to the pinning ceremony, an ELC orientation was also held on the same day for all College of Education students enrolled in ELC courses to guide them as they delve into field study and teaching internship.

The event marked a historic occasion for the College of Education, and it is hoped that it will inspire future generations of student teachers to live up to the high standards and excellence set by the College.

The successful conclusion of this event is owed to the hard work and dedication of ELC Coordinator Prof. Alia I. Pacasirang, the ELC Officers and volunteers, and the College of Education faculty and staff headed by Dean Dr. Minerva-Saminah M. Naga.

Meanwhile, a former retired faculty of the college  in his research  study revealed that “The Teacher Pinning Ceremony is a time-honored tradition marking the occasion when one is welcomed into the teaching profession. It is a symbolic ceremony denoting a milestone in an educator’s life.

Candidates will be presented a  College of Education pin that not only signifies their association with the University, but also represents their affiliation with the honorable profession of teaching.

The former faculty also underscored that “many of their honorees said this event is more meaningful than Commencement”
