Learning is by far the only entity that remains constant in our rapidly changing world. Time is compressed, meaning that we have very little time to keep abreast with change. However one has to learn to adapt and be a part of change. The only way this can be achieved is to learn how to survive or “how to learn” with the ever increasing demands of life. A learning environment involves people who are willing to improve themselves through continuous education and training. In the context of education, learning environment is one of the most important factors for effective learning to happen with in the classroom setting. Continue reading
The advent of K 12 curriculum stirs up the Philippine educational system. This recent change in the Philippines’ educational system was implemented four years ago when President Benigno Aquino III signed the K 12 education into law in 2013, adding three years to the country’s basic education curriculum.
The K 12 curriculum requires all Filipino students to have one year of kindergarten, six years of elementary schooling (grades 1 to 6), four years of junior high school (grades 7 to 10), and two years of senior high school (grades 11 to 12). Prior to the implementation of the K 12 curriculum, the Philippines is the last country in Asia and was one of the only three countries in the world with Angola and Djibouti in Africa with a 10-year pre-university or basic education cycle. The 10 year education cycle has always been seen as a disadvantage for our students who are competing in an increasingly global job market compared to our neighboring countries and the rest of the world who has been in the K12 curriculum.

The Department of Education needs LEADERS who “LEAD BY HEART” and leaders who could alter the worst behavior by example. Constant reminder on the core principles of leadership is not enough to help one to manage a small or a big school, it all boils down to how the administrator treats his superiors, subordinates, faculty and staff, parents and the pupils as well.
Leading from the heart, brings back the concept of values on leadership drawn from ones experience as a classroom teacher. Being experienced allows a leader to speak to others from both experience and the heart. Continue reading
As an educator, I see reading as the most powerful means to promote understanding or better comprehension skills among students in school. Most often, we account the academic difficulties of learners in school to their poor reading capability. Continue reading

The Brigada Eskwela is the present-day portrayal of our well-known Bayanihan spirit – the long time tradition of volunteerism we Filipinos value most. It’s a nationwide campaign of public schools with the consent and guidance of the Department of Education (DepED) to initiate the voluntary convergence of acquired resources, efforts of teachers, cooperation of parents and students, support of community officials and non-government organizations. All voluntary stakeholders convene together to conduct minor repair and clean up in their respective schools for at least two weeks before the start of the in-coming school year. This is to foster understanding among all sectors of society that the education of the Filipino is the responsibility of everyone. Continue reading
The curriculum comprises a variety of topics and competencies, which enable the children to become successful adults who will contribute to the community since learning the concepts in all subjects makes a learner become a well-rounded person who is able to understand the past, their place in the world (geography), their rights and responsibilities as citizens (government), and the system that empowers them to survive and prosper.
