Fill in the Blank: I Wish My Teacher Knew ____________________. Hear your kid’s thoughts

#IWishMyTeacherKnew
Parenting
Philippine Education


20 April 2015 – Months in between March to May are summer vacation here in Manila, technically there’s no teacher around to follow up what teacher Kyle had started. At home we are our child’s all-around teacher, so to make progress I gave my child a piece of paper to write down her idea behind “I Wish My Teacher Knew…” I had to pause the movie she was watching, she asked questions like “Is it about my personality? All about me?” What are your thoughts you wish your teacher knew (since she doesn’t know anything about you). It could be a happy or sad state; you choose and construct well what to answer. Think of it when you enter third grade this coming June. I bet she will bring the same activity to your class.

I left her for five minutes with this note (made me so pressured! hahaha):

If public school teachers here in the Philippines will adopt this lesson it could trigger a rather serious and more heartbreaking response from students.

Misconceptions about Pet Dogs and Birds in your Homes

Entirely Pets

 

When we were kids (toddler at least) older folks used to remind us not play with dogs due to complications of getting asthma, but we get along with our pet dogs. Same thing with birds, one of my child’s pediatrician even said after a couple of consultations (we’ve been visiting pedia clinics twice to thrice a year due to asthma attacks) if we have pets and yes they are positively sure about the birds being the culprit of the virus which led to some lung disorder.

Philippine Education

“I am Krisel Mallari, a Filipino citizen who would rather choose to fail with honor, than win by cheating.”

Santo Niño Parochial School’s 13th Commencement Exercises held last March 21.
Kristel Mallari’s speech, Class of 2015 salutatorian of a parochial school in Quezon City was stopped by teachers and administrators in the middle of her speech voicing her grievances and school’s failure to address the complaints of unfair treatment claimed by Ms. Mallari.

We had a brief encounter with this school since my cousin was enrolled here for one academic year and later pulled her out to be transferred to a better school. I remember high school students from this school behaves differently and with too much aggression. We later observed the school’s system might be the cause of why students conduct oneself with rudeness and insubordination.

Unofficial “Welcome Remarks” penned by Kristel Mallari
“A pleasant morning to my fellow batchmates, to my teachers, guests, welcome to the 13th Commencement Exercises. Continue reading
