Montessori Professional College terror prof caught on video

Move over, Robert Blair Carabuena and “Amalayer” Paula Jamie Salvosa. Make way for the next Internet sensation! A two-minute clip of a male professor physically and verbally assaulting his mostly female students has generated a lot of buzz online Monday night.

Clad in pink long sleeves with a black necktie, Narciso Varona of the Montessori Professional College (Pasay City branch) can be seen cursing at his students and throwing test papers around. At one point, the  professor acted as if he wants to slam an armchair into a student’s head. Check this link to know more about the school. Watch the video titled “Abusadong Professor, Violente (sic) at High Blood” below:

The video was uploaded by YouTube user “annamae macayan” on the same day (January 6) that she created an account in the said website. The video has been shared more than 16,000 times in the Facebook page of Hayop Sa Ganda two hours after it was posted there.

For its part, the administrators of We Support Anonymous Philippines Facebook page is asking their followers to give details about the identity of the professor. In a few hours, I’m sure we’ll all know who this abhorrent professor is. By the looks of it, this might just become the first national Internet meme for 2013.

Some thoughts:

Unlike in the case of “Amalayer,” I don’t think anyone in his/her right mind can withhold judgment in this particular case. The professor is wrong whichever way you look at it. As a college instructor myself (albeit a relative greenhorn in the field), I know from experience that some students can really be nasty in dealing with us. However, yelling at students and making physical threats against them is indefensible. As the Code of Conduct for Teachers says, “A teacher shall maintain at all times a dignified personality which could serveas model worthy of emulation by learners, peers, and others.”

UPDATES:

*The National Union of Students in the Philippines (NUSP) has called on the administration of the school where this incident happen to launch an investigation into the matter. “After due process and proper investigation, discipline and all the necessary actions should be executed where these are due,” the group said in a statement.

*According to ABS-CBN’s Bandila, the Technical Education Skills Development Authority has jurisdiction over the MPC since it is a vocational school. However, TESDA head Joel Villanueva says his agency has no power over the licensing of  teachers in schools under their watch.  If Varona is handling general education subjects, he does not need to be TESA accredited.

  1. If that girl is my daughter, that teacher will never hear the end of it. He will be out of his job that day and I will make pretty sure that he will never ever teach again.

  2. Parusahan sya agad agad. Bading ka! Sira ulo. Mabulok ka sa kulungan. Ang pangit mo pa nmn. Bweset ka! Matanda kang paurong. Sana mangyari sa pamilya no!

  3. Threatening gestures? I thought he hit the girl with the test papers at around 00:23. I’d say that’s more than a threat.

  4. let’s wait til he air his side. college students really have the guts for prof to lost temper-and to think “high blood”. well this just means, we need to act uprightly in whatever case we never know someone might video-recording it.

  5. Lucky for the prof the girl was somewhat timid, resorting to only words to defend herself. If it were me, the moment he lays his hands on me, i’d go on no-holds-barred mode, possibly even kicking him down the stairs the moment i get the chance. Pag sakitan na, walang prof prof. Pantay na tayo. Swerte sya at di sya natapat sa tulad kong studyante. This incident would not pass without one or both of us getting injured had it been me. Just saying, abusive professors. Wag kayong masyadong confident, your (female) students just might give you an unleasant surprise.

  6. Sad, it seems like our teachers back home aren’t accountable with their actions, I grew up in Philippines and went to high school there, and I experienced teacher’s abuse myself, I always like to voice my opinions and apparently that teacher didn’t like it, he physically discipline me and unfortunately for him, I fought back…That’s bulshit, teachers supposedly an icon and mentors not someone that our kids render abuse outside of our homes…he should be punished and yanked out with his license (if he has one)…This is ridiculous and just angers me when I saw this…such a dejavu for me…

  7. hindi naman lahat ganun nagkataon lang talaga at nagkatugma sa pangalan ng school montesorry unprofessional college mataas siguro magbigay ng grade si sir sa ethics…..

  8. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Great blog!|
