DLSU-Manila faculty named Metrobank Outstanding Teacher

Dr. Rose Marie Salazar-Clemeña, university fellow and full professor of the Counselor Education Department, has been selected as one of the awardees of Metrobank Foundation’s 2000 Search for Outstanding Teachers. The awarding ceremony will be held this September.

Salazar-Clemeña, who has been with the University since 1974, was chosen for her invaluable contributions to the teaching profession through instructional competence, personal integrity and character, and professional and community involvement. 

She is currently the coordinator of the College of Education’s (CED) Institute for Educational Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics and editor of CED’s The Asia-Pacific Education Researcher. Salazar-Clemeña has also served as CED dean from 1992 to 1996 and chair of the Counselor Education Department prior to her Deanship.

She is delighted and humbled that the distinction came on the centenary of the canonization of St. John Baptist de La Salle and his 50th year as patron saint of teachers. Salazar-Clemeña says that “the award is a further affirmation of my vocation as a teacher and a recognition of the Lasallian philosophy of education.”
