  • Alpha Java says: Nelly H. Valerio was my Mathematics teacher when I was in my senior year in high school at Mandurriao High School.As a teacher, she was very passionate in dealing with us and a very committed mentor. I adore her so much and she is one of my inspirations why I became a teacher. When I became a teacher, I called her mom like the rest of my former closed to my hear teachers. I used to go out with them.There was so much fun to be with my retired teachers.
    In 2011, Mommy Nelly became my angel. She was used by God to be an instrument why I became a school principal. She really pushed me that time to take the principal’s exam. She did not let me go out of her office that night of Sept 29, 2011 until I said YES on her of her instruction for me to take the said exam. I could forget her words, “I might be your angel” . She said it for the third time amd I accept her challenge. And really, she was my angel, I was the only passer from the Division of Iloilo City that time. And it was also Mommy Nelly who placed me as the OIC Principal of Mandurriao National High School in 2015 before she retired which was the start of my joirney as a school administrator. Everytime we meet she would always tlremind me to anchor my feet on the ground and always pray to the Lord whatever decision I will make. When I knew that she was sick, I felt so sad because I could not visit her. And the saddest part was when her younger sister texted me that she was gone😭… It broke my heart😭😭😭…. But the only consolation that I have is to know that she is with the Lord and that someday we will see each other again…No more sufferings… No more pain…
    Mommy Nelly, thank you for making me what I am now today, Principal IV of the biggest public high in Iloilo City… As I have promised you, I will uphold the dignity and the commitment of a public servant just like you. Thank you for the love you have shown me…Thank you for EVERYTHING! I LOVE YOU… Til we meet again ♥️♥️♥️🙏
