Choices from memories associated with the AIM family
Gaby was a giant into the history of the AIMвЂ•a scholar, a teacher, a passionate advocate, and a real frontrunner and visionary. I am aware that his part in the AIMвЂ™s development will continually be recalled by faculty and board people, previous and present, with fondness and admiration. I deem it a great privilege to have known him and also to have already been associated with him over years.
A great and man that is great whom steered AIM through very difficult times. CanвЂ™t forget the method that you died and lived for AIM.
вЂ“ Prof. Rico Angtuaco
GabyвЂ™s legacy had been his training philosophy. He truly thought that the teacherвЂ™s most crucial task had been to вЂњteach students, not topics.вЂќ The goal he desired to almost achieve in every class of their over four decades of teaching at AIM, was to get students to believe individually, work decisively, and communicate convincingly.
Gaby resisted the temptation of offering his solution despite student objections, even if he knew the responses well. His wisdom showed in the difficult concerns he’d ask of studentsвЂ™ responses. He always attempted to show this wayвЂ•whatever the system, course, or case he was assigned, even if it hurt his student ratings. Gaby became referred to as вЂњpureвЂќ case method teacher, a very important but unusual and breed that is vanishing.
In todayвЂ™s flat, hot, and chaotic globe where current most readily useful theories or frameworks and expertsвЂ™ solutions no longer work as they did before, AIM has to produce more graduates who are able to ask difficult questions regarding conventional answers.
GabyвЂ™s legacy glows bright into the minds and hearts of AIM graduates whose lives he has moved. His legacy will go on for as long as alumni will attempt to teach other people the philosophy and values he lived by.
A time has passed. We donвЂ™t think there will ever be anyone with this type of deep abiding love of AIM as Gaby had. He’d numerous children, and certainly AIM is certainly one of these. We asked him when long ago exactly how he wished to be remembered. He paused a while then he said вЂњthat I happened to be a teacherвЂќ.
