arcenoBangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Department of Education awarded Mrs. Zelda T. Arceno last February 26, 2013 at DepED Region 10 Office, Cagayan de Oro City for being the Mindanao Area Winner for Edukasyong Pantahanan at Pangkabuhayan in the 2012 Search for GURO NG PAG-ASA – (Gantimpala para sa Ulirang Pagtuturo ng Pag-iimpok at Araling Pansalapi).

Mrs. Arceno’s commendable performance was recognized due to her dedication in integrating Financial Education through the use of teaching guides in Araling Panlipunan (AP), Edukasyong Pantahanan at Pangkabuhayan (EPP) and Edukasyong Pagpapakatao (EsP)

The Schools Division Superintendent, Mr. Edilberto L. Oplenaria was with her on stage receiving the Certificate of Recognition and a cheque of Php 50,000.00 from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Three years ago, Mrs. Zelda T. Arceno was a Master Teacher I of Malaybalay City Central School when the Search had started.  Had it not been the promotion she is holding now, as a School Principal in St. Peter Elementary School in Far East District, she would have been the winner in the whole Philippines as asserted by one of the judges in the Search.

The Director of the Corporate Affairs Office of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Ms. Fe M. De La Cruz hoped that the accomplishments of Mrs. Arceno together with the other winners of the 2012 Guro ng Pag-asa will encourage more teachers to continue empowering school children to become more financially independent. She also looked forward to having many more excellent nominees from Region 10 for this year’s Search.

Finally, Ms. Arceno is very happy with her great achievement.
