INTRODUCTION

One of the final actions that an education major must complete to attain a degree is student teaching. This is usually completed under the supervision of an experienced teacher in a classroom setting. During this period, the student teacher is exposed to school climate, student behavior, curriculum development, instructional methods, grading systems, etc. Student teaching is important for soon-to-be teachers, and they should make the most of their experience, trying to learn as much as they possibly can from the experienced teacher. Experienced teachers possess a wealth of information available to student teachers. These more experienced teachers are there to help the student teacher through some of the issues that will occur during the student-teaching period, and inevitably, this advice and these experiences will help a student through the challenges of their first year in the classroom. For student teachers, this period is generally very similar to an internship, but it is one that is really hands-on where individuals get to experience the role of teacher as they have never before. Yes, these individuals have sat through class after class, but nothing like student teaching will prepare one for the rigors of the teaching profession. The student teaching experience provides teacher candidates with the chance to practice recently learned instruction and classroom management techniques, while receiving feedback from the cooperating teacher and university supervisor. While sometimes the feedback can be hard to take, it is important to keep an open mind.

Some student teachers do well from the start and their supervisor or cooperating teacher may not have any real criticism to offer. While that may seem like a positive situation, it really robs the student teacher of the opportunity for continued growth. If the supervisor or cooperating teacher is only complimentary, thank them, but ask for suggestions about what to work on next, or which other professional development resources might be helpful for ongoing improvement. The student teaching experience provides an opportunity for practice, personalized feedback, and professional growth. Students teachers will learn the most from their teaching evaluations if they approach them with an open mind and a willingness to learn.

POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES HISTORY

The Polytechnic University of the Philippines (Filipino: Politeknikong Unibersidad ng Pilipinas) commonly known as PUP is a state university in the Philippines. It was founded on October 19, 1904 as the Manila Business School, offering commerce-related courses. The university offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in accountancy, engineering, political science, social science, business, arts, agriculture, media and communication and associate programs. The University is among the leading universities in the Philippines. The main campus is located at Santa Mesa, Manila, along the Pasig River. The PUP Manila consists of three sub-campuses named Mabini, NDC and M.H. del Pilar. The house where Mabini died is now located in the campus of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. The simple nipa house retains the original furniture, and some of the books he wrote, and also contains souvenir items, while hosting the municipal library and reading facilities, hence, the main campus is named after Mabini. Some campuses are located on the other side of the metropolis and the rest are located across the country. The Polytechnic University of the Philippines System is among the state universities in the Philippines with the lowest tuition.

History
(1904-1951)
Take a journey to the University's humble beginnings as it started being a business school. 1904 In response to the demand for training personnel for the government service and to the felt need to provide skills essential for private business employment, the Manila Business School (MBS) was founded on October 1904 as part of a City School system under the superintendence of CA O'Reilley. It offered the prescribed intermediate curriculum and such vocational-technical courses as typing, bookkeeping, stenography, and telegraphy. 1908 On account of the fact that the great majority of its students came from the province, the MBS was made into an Insular (or national) school and accordingly renamed Philippine School of Commerce (PSC). At first, the intermediate curriculum was prescribed in addition to subjects such as typewriting, bookkeeping, and stenography. Afterwards a four-year secondary course in commerce was offered in addition to the courses in Bookkeeping, Stenography, Typewriting and Telegraphy. 1911 The PSC was placed again under the supervision of the Superintendent of City Schools for Administrative purposes only, but retained its status as an Insular school. The PSC produced its

first batch of high school graduates. During this year the course in telegraphy was discontinued since the Telegraph School of the Bureau of Posts offered better facilities. 1912 The PSC offered a one-year course in Stenography for high school graduates. The course proved to be successful and popular because of its positive results. Those who took the course got easily employed as stenographers and later as office managers. 1917 To keep in step with changing conditions, the PSC started revising its courses of study. Under the leadership of Acting Principal Luis F. Reyes, it continually raised its general requisites. To enable young people employed during the daytime to acquire further training, it opened night classes (These classes would be discontinued in 1932 because of the government's retrenchment policy). From 1904, the PSC has known several homes: an old Spanish building located at the foot of a small bridge at San Rafael Street, near the Mapa High School to an old house at the corner at Dulungbayan Street (now Rizal Avenue) and Dolores Street (now Bustos Street), Santa Cruz, Manila. Two years later, it was transferred to Gunao Street, corner Arlegui in Quiapo, in the building which now housed the Manila Blue Printing. At the end of another two years, it found itself in a building in General Solano Street, San Miguel, formerly occupied by the Bureau of Audits and the Philippine Senate where it had the consolation of staying for four years. A building behind the San Miguel Church was its next destination where it stayed for about twelve years. Then back to the Gen. Solano Building. In this last place, it remained for seven years up to 1933. 1933 The PSC was merged with the Philippine Normal School (PNS) and the Philippine School of Arts and Trades. During the merger, which lasted for 12 years, it operated under the supervision and administration of the PNS Superintendent. The PSC students who completed their respective courses were considered graduates of the PNS. The PSC replaced its secondary curriculum with a two-year junior college curriculum. 1940 The existence of PSC caught the attention of then President Manuel L. Quezon. In his graduation address at the Rizal Memorial Stadium on March 26, 1940, he said in part (addressing the graduates of the School of Commerce): "I can tell you why you are forgotten on these occasions. It is because you do not belong here... I will do my best to get the National Assembly to set aside a special appropriation for a building for the School of Commerce, so that graduates of this school will henceforth be where they can be noticed." 1942 Subsequently, then Congressman Manuel A. Alazarte, with then department head Luis F. Reyes,

formulated a bill to this effect and was presented to Congress. Unfortunately the Pacific War broke out. The plan was not carried out. During the war years, the PSC was among those institutions of learning compelled to declare a blackout on culture. 1946 Shortly after liberation, Superintendent Luis F. Reyes resumed tasks for the re-establishment and rehabilitation of the school. The appeal was returned with more than eight thousand pesos allocation received from the national funds of the Bureau of Public Works for purposes of repairs and maintenance of public buildings. The ruins of the Normal Hall building was turned into an improvised house of learning and on August 4, 1946, it was able to open formally regular classes to surprisingly eager students. The PSC offered one-year and two-year courses in retailing merchandising and a complete four-year course in distributive arts education. 1947 Meanwhile, the PNS found it necessary to use the Normal Hall building as a dormitory. PSC, in turn, resigned to its lot of again working in humble crowded rooms. This drove school authorities to seek remedies for this unbearable situation. Representations were made to the Philippine Alien Property Administrator, through Malacañang and the Department of Foreign Affairs, for the acquisition of the Lepanto site. Such representations were so intensified that on July 31, 1947 the two buildings in Lepanto (now S.H. Loyola) Street in Sampaloc, Manila were turned over to the Philippine Government for the exclusive use of the PSC. The School began to move and on August 4 the official transfer was effected. Luis F. Reyes was appointed PSC Superintendent. 1948 The PSC acquired the P.E. grounds, also on S.H. Loyola Street. 1949 Republic Act No. 415 was passed, providing for the establishment of teacher-training departments in government schools. The PSC was one of the beneficiaries of the said Act. 1951 Three departments were organized: Teacher Training, Business Education, and Research. When the Philippine Educational System celebrated its Golden Jubilee, the PSC was awarded a plaque in recognition of its achievement "for bold and successful pioneering in vocational business education."

(1952-1971)

This period covers the time where the business school became a college whose main thrust is in commerce. 1952 Through Republic Act (RA) 778 passed by both houses of Congress on May 20, 1952 and signed by then Philippine President Elpidio Quirino on June 21, 1952, the PSC was converted into the Philippine College of Commerce (PCC), with Luis F. Reyes as its first president. The PCC broadened its program offerings with the inclusion of undergraduate courses in commerce and related fields. 1952 Through Republic Act (RA) 778 passed by both houses of Congress on May 20, 1952 and signed by then Philippine President Elpidio Quirino on June 21, 1952, the PSC was converted into the Philippine College of Commerce (PCC), with Luis F. Reyes as its first president. The PCC broadened its program offerings with the inclusion of undergraduate courses in commerce and related fields.Top of Form 1954 This Institution celebrated its Golden Jubilee. 1955 For its "dynamic leadership in vocational business education", the PCC was conferred by the Business Writers Association of the Philippines the title of "Business College of the Year." The Annex Building (also in S.H. Loyola St.), which had housed the Congress of the Philippines, was officially turned over to PCC. 1956 When Reyes retired, Prof. Pacifico A. Velilla took over the PCC presidency. 1960 Atty. Victor dela Torre was designated Acting College President. 1962 Immediately after assuming the presidency, Dr. Nemesio E. Prudente established an Advisory Committee for the President, a CPA review class, a scholarship committee, and a codified set of rules and regulations for the College. 1963 The College Code was printed, the Public Relations Program established, and the first issue of the PCC Faculty Journal published. Other initiatives taken during that school year include:  Inclusion of more liberal arts courses in the curriculum;  Establishment of the Book Bank and the Student Loan Fund;  Elevation of high school teachers to the rank of Assistant Instructor; and  Establishment of the Junior Executive Training Program.

1965 Through Pres. Diosdado Macapagal's proclamation, the Pandacan site of the Bureau of Animal Industry was reserved for PCC's use. The student assistantship program was instituted and a system of financial aid was introduced. Instructors with masteral and doctoral degrees were, as a matter of policy, automatically promoted to Assistant Professor 1 and Assistant Professor 2, respectively. 1967 Important developments during that school year include:  The reservation, through Pres. Ferdinand Marcos' declaration, of a 10-hectare lot in Bicutan, Taguig for PCC use;  The adoption of a policy of student involvement in PCC's official functions;  Revision of courses of study; and  Enrichment of the traditional vocational course with more liberal arts and cultural courses aimed at the PCC students' holistic education as well as the reinforcement of classroom learning with varied co-curricular activities. 1968 The development of the preceding school year led to the rise of social consciousness among the PCC constituents and to the revision of the college charter by the passage of RA No. 6980 authorizing the offering of courses in the social sciences related to business education. Besides, the Sta. Mesa (A. Mabini) Campus was assigned for the use and disposition of the PCC. Also, the titles of the lots on S.H. Loyola St. were awarded to PCC through congressional legislation. 1969 Initiatives included the following:  Appointment of the president of the Supreme Student Council as member of the Board of Trustees (now Board of Regents);  Offering of the following in lieu of the two-year basic commercial course: Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Master of Business Administration; and  Securing the exemption of PCC personnel from civil service rules and regulation as well as from the application of the Wage and Position Classification Office (WAPCO) criteria.  Short-term courses in Electronic Data Processing (EDP) were offered under the Faculty of Accountancy. 1971 Among the important developments were:  Revision of the College Code;  Transfer of the Laboratory High School from S.H. Loyola Campus to A. Mabini Campus; and  Creation of the Katipunan Foundation, Inc.

(1972-1985)
The institution's transformation from a college into a university happened during these period. 1972 When martial law was declared, Dr. Narciso Albaraccin, Jr. was designated Officer-in-Charge

(OIC), with Dr. Pablo T. Mateo, Jr. as Performance Officer. Among the changes under Albaraccin were:  Abolition of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences;  Introduction of several new courses, including technology and occupational education;  Reorganization of different Faculties; and  Offering of a five-year curriculum in Accounting. 1973 Dr. Isabelo T. Crisostomo succeeded Albaraccin as OIC. 1974 The following developments came in the wake of Dr. Crisostomo's appointment as Acting President: • Offering of Bachelor of Business Administration and General Administration; • Completion of phase 1 of the gymnasium; • Establishment of the Center for Skills and Rural Industries Development (CSRID), which was designed to give out-of-school youths skill training for gainful employment and in the production of export products using indigenous raw materials in their communities; • Construction of the marble pylon and the Mabini Circle; and • Creation of a unit to handle short courses in Electronic Data Processing (EDP). 1975 The PCC opened its branch in the Bataan Export Processing Zone (BEPZ), Mariveles, Bataan. 1976 The Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) was reestablished, the Master of Public Administration (MPA) and the Master in Economics (ME) programs were added in the Graduate School, and the various offices were re-structured. 1977 After Dr. Mateo became president in May 1977, the ladder program was expanded to all degree courses; 13 additional degree courses using the ladder approach were introduced. The "technobusiness" curriculum was developed, and introduced were adult business education and nondegree courses in business/distributive arts. 1978 Through Presidential Decree (PD) 1341, PCC was converted into a chartered state university and accordingly renamed Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP). This led to the broadening of course offerings and the restructure/streamlining of the University's administrative organization.

1979 Among the accomplishments of this period were:

  

   

Face-lifting of A. Mabini Campus through construction of the main library, the University canteen, the ecumenical chapel (Interfaith Chapel), and the 3rd, 4th, and portion of the 5th floors of the XYZ building (Main building in Mabini Campus); Establishment of a branch in Lopez, Quezon (June 1979); Revision of undergraduate curricular programs; Establishment of consortia with the Construction Industry Board for the Opening of Master in Applied Statistics, the Philippine Normal College for the conduct of teacher education courses in PUP Lopez, and La Consolacion College for a program in Cooperatives; Expansion of graduate programs to include masteral programs in Public Administration (MPA), Public and Business Administration (MPBA), Economics (ME), Accountancy (MAC), as well as doctoral programs in Public Administration (DPA) and Business Administration (DBA); Creation of the Institute of Technology; Introduction of ladderized baccalaureate courses in Tourism, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Office Administration, Government Accounting, and Library Science; and Start of the PUP Review Center (Summer 1981). The EDP/Computer Data Processing Management (CDPM) unit was created under the Faculty of Business and Cooperatives. It started to offer a four-year ladderized course, known as Bachelor in Computer Data Processing Management (BCDPM).

1983 In spite of the country's economic difficulties, PUP's 71 ladderized technical and professional programs continued to be viable. There were significant accomplishments like:  Introduction of Bachelor of Human Behavior Technology (BHBT) under the FAS;  Inclusion of a course in computers in all degree programs;  Revival of the PUP Student Council, drafting of its Constitution and By-Laws by the Student Constitutional Convention and the ratification of this by the studentry; and  Consortium with the NMPC as well as international linkages through PASUC-Texas Consortium, the Association of Asian Institutes of Higher Learning, the Regional Institute for Higher Educational Development, the International Association of Universities, and the UNESCO. 1984 The University underwent reorganization. It adopted the "cluster colleges" set-up, where each college prepared the program and supervised all the subjects required in the degree program offered in the college. It set up a University Center for Technological Research, the function of which was to conduct research and produce inventions/innovations in technology areas most needed by the communities served by PUP. For lack of sufficient rooms, laboratories, and related facilities, the University considered the completion of the 5th floor of the XYZ-Main Academic Building a top priority in its infrastructure program. The PUP also established a tie-up with the University of Life in the training of trainors/project managers needed in the KKK program, as well as with the Ministry of Trade, the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, and the NACIDA in these agencies' continuing training program to upgrade their personnel.

1985 That school year was an uneasy one...

(1986-1990)
This period brought about a dramatic change in the University firming its commitment to the role of education as an equalizing factor. 1986 In April 1986, the PUP presidency was reassumed by Dr. Nemesio E. Prudente, who has seen university education as an equalizing instrument that would enable the children of the economically disadvantaged to climb up the ladder of society - and to counterbalance the dominating influence of the affluent few in the nation's day-to-day affairs as well as help greatly in charting its long-term destiny. Dr. Prudente had the PUP philosophy, mission, and strategies formulated by a multi-sectoral committee; a new PUP logo designed; a new PUP hymn composed; and the administrative/academic organization restructured. This led to the renaming/raising of the following departments of the University: FROM Electronic Data Processing (an area in the College of Business) Institute of Hotel and Restaurant Management Physical Education and Sports Institute of Economics, Banking, and Finance Institute of Technology TO College of Computer Management and Information Technology (CCMIT) College of Hotel and Restaurant Management / Food Science and Technology (CHRMFST) College of Physical Education and Sports (CPES) College of Economics and Politics (CEP) College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA)

It also led to the creation of the College of Languages and Mass Communications (CLMC), the Institute of Social History (ISH), and the Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations (ILIR). New graduate programs were introduced:
  

Master in Industrial Engineering and Management (MIEM), Master of Arts in Psychology (MAP), and Master in Educational Management (MEM).

Aside from this, the nontraditional masteral programs in Business Administration were strengthened.

In PUP Manila, the Community Relations Office was created under the Public Affairs Office and the community outreach programs of the branches were strengthened. University governance was democratized. The Academic Council was expanded to include not only full professors but associate and assistant professors as well. The open-door policy was institutionalized, the University Code revised, and the PUP Five-Year Development Plan (19871992) drafted. The University increased enrollment at all levels as well as the number of scholarships and financial aid grants; it also offered short-term technical-vocational courses and maintained its laboratory high school. The University improved its instructional, co-curricular, and administrative facilities; it also acquired more and bigger campuses. Trends, the institution's official professional journal of ideas was revived. 1987 The developments during this school year include:  Recognition of KAWANI, an employee's union;  Offering in Doctor in Educational Management (DEM), Master in Physical Education, Dance, and Recreation (MPEDR), and Master in Psychology (MAP);  Purchase of Hasmin Hostel in Sta. Mesa;  Initial offering of PUP Maragondon of baccalaureate programs in Accountancy, Business Education, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering;  Offering at PUP Manila of new baccalaureate programs in Mathematics, Applied Sociology, Advertising and PR, Transportation Management, Information Technology, Political Economy, Internal Trade Management, Political Science, Public Administration, Architecture, Chemical Engineering, and Filipino;  Initial offering by PUP BEPZ / Bataan of baccalaureate programs in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, and Computer Data Processing Management (BCDPM);  Initial offering by PUP Lopez of BCDPM;  Strengthening of the University's technical-vocational programs in Manila, Maragondon (Cavite), and Unisan (Quezon);  Appointment of Prof. Ofelia M. Carague to the SGV Professional Chair in Computer Science Output;  Improvement of physical facilities in PUP Manila and its branches;  Enhanced co-curricular programs, upsurge in cultural activities, and maintenance of a dynamic physical education and sports program, including retention of overall championships in the SCUAA (State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association) and the PICUAA;  Implementation of national government circulars effecting salary adjustments based on merit;

      

Sending of personnel, on official time, to seminars / workshops and conferences outside the University; Granting of scholarships to incoming freshmen who were editors-in-chief or journalists of the year while in high school; Revival of Memorabilia, the official yearbook of graduating students; Increase of faculty / student newsletters; The degree Bachelor in Information Technology (BIT) was offered; Establishment of the University Center for Human Rights Education (UCHURE); and Improved physical set-up / acquisition of more facilities for the PUP Printing Press.

1988 The Administration stepped up efforts to develop the physical facilities for PUP Manila and the branches. It also followed up the acquisition of the 10-hectare lot of the National Development Company which is adjacent to the University's A. Mabini Campus in Sta. Mesa, Manila. It likewise followed up bills in Congress, such as those... 1. Seeking to grant faculty members and students participation in University decisionmaking as full-pledge members of their school's Board of Regents and Trustees; 2. Granting financial autonomy to state universities and colleges; 3. Establishing PUP extensions / branches in Taguig (Metro Manila), Romblon, and Masbate; and 4. Establishing a national mass communications center in PUP Manila. The University established centers and institution for special studies with their respective academic journals as well as consortia, linkages, and joint projects with local and international agencies. It implemented its yearly evaluation and merit promotion scheme for the faculty and administrative staffs. And it conferred doctoral degrees, honoris casua, to four prominent personages. Other developments:
    

Offering of a graduate extension program in PUP BEPZ; Offering of more nontraditional courses Adoption of the policy requiring a masteral degree for a faculty member to qualify for permanent position; Getting by PUP graduates of a passing mark of 81.5% in Licensure Examination for Nutritionists / Dieticians, which was twice the national passing mark of 40.5%; Offering of refresher courses by College of Accountancy (CA) and the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) to prepare PUP students for board examinations; and Printing of more publications, such as Trends, Bisig, Journal of Economics and Politics, Journal of Social History, PUP Profiles, PUP Campus Observer, and the Graduate Forum.

PUP continued to dominate the SCUAA and the PICUAA. The PUP Banda Kawayan was made the official entertainer of the Philippine Pavilion Hotel during the opening of the World

Exposition '88 in Brisbane, Australia, and the Bagong Himig again emerged as the champion in the national choral singing competition. 1989 The PUP Graduate School introduced a nontraditional program to the degree of Master in Economics. PUP Manila started to offer traditional baccalaureate degree programs in Sociology, Political Science, and Cooperatives. PUP Lopez, on the other hand, introduced two additional courses: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. The Board of Regents approved the offering of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Bachelor of Science in Criminology, Bachelor of Science in Forestry, Forest Ranger Certificate, and Diploma in Fisheries Technology. The University, furthermore, continued to explore the "Open University" concept. It also started to develop the 17-hectare campus in Taguig, Metro Manila. The University conferred an honorary doctorate in Public Administration on former Pres. Diosdado Macapagal and in Arts and Letters on Prof. Renato Constantino, Sr. Faculty members teaching the same subjects were required to use a common syllabus, for this would facilitate departmentalization of final examinations, particularly in the basic subjects. The University Textbook Board was established. The University adopted the policy that only students who pas the qualifying examinations in the third year of the particular specialization may continue to enroll in courses with board / licensure examinations. Also established were Professional Chairs in Political Economy, Banking and Finance, Computer Science, Engineering, and Marketing, as well as the Research Institute for Politics and Economics (RIPE) and the Center for International Relations (CIR). The University got elevated to level one status, which meant, among other things, higher salary rates for University personnel. It was also able to complete the P.E. Bldg. on A. Mabini Campus, the Graduate School Bldg. at M.H. del Pilar Campus, and a two-storey building in PUP Lopez. It rehabilitated the old PNB Bldg. for the use of PUP Bataan.

Colleges
The academic units of the University are called colleges or institutes. These units offer undergraduate degrees and/or postgraduate diplomas on their specific fields of specialization. Aside from the colleges, the University maintains a separate Graduate School which offers graduate degrees. The Graduate School is a multidisciplinary institution. The oldest college of the PUP is the College of Education which is the predecessor of all the degree-granting units. An institute is a smaller unit, although it has the same footing as a full-fledged college. When an institute gained enough student number and academic programs, the Board of Regents will decide if they will elevate it into a college. The last institute of PUP was the Institute of Cooperatives, which was converted as the College of Cooperatives in 2006. The Colleges and the Graduate School are headed by their respective deans, who is appointed by the Board of Regents of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. The dean acts as the head

of the faculty of his college and assumes administrative works assigned by the Board. The dean has tenure of three years, which, may be extended up to two terms upon reappointment.

LAGRO HIGH SCHOOL
PHILOSOPHY
The development of the young into an intelligent, morally upright, responsible and productive member of the society is the main focus of education. For this reason, Lagro High School believes that every Filipino high school age youth must be given the right to quality instruction in a compassionate and caring environment.

VISION
Lagro High School is an educational institution that produces academically competent, morally upright and vocationally prepared citizens of the society.

MISSION
To ensure the maximum intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth of the child and strengthen moral foundations through relevant and adequate learning experiences in a nurturing and caring school environment.

HISTORY OF LAGRO HIGH SCHOOL In the early seventies, the growing number of people in the GSIS La Mesa Homeowners Association (GLAMEHA) triggered the need for a high school in Lagro Subdivision. The officers of GLAMEHA requested fervently for an establishment of a high school next to Lagro Elementary School. With the aid of the city government and the education bureau, Novaliches High School with Mr. Florencio Dumlao as principal started accepting students. This high school annex started on June 13, 1974 with 87 students and a facility, which were humbly two housing units in Block 59 and chairs the students provided themselves. On August 26 of the same year, Lagro Annex was transferred to the Lagro Elementary School compound and occupied the sawali-walled makeshift building. The high school was then headed by Mr. Crispulo A. Pilar with Mr. Narciso M. Caingat, Mrs. Nilfa C. Caingat and Mrs. Greta Manlapig as pioneer teachers. Two years after, the enrolment rose to 249 from the former 87 with three sections in first year, two in second year, and one in third year. They were all managed to stay in just four classrooms guided by nine teachers. The first graduation from this high school happened two years after with an increased enrolment of 461 with Mrs. Josefa Q. Maglipon, head of the Home Economics Department in Novaliches High School, who replaced Mr. Pilar(who left for the United States). The School Year 1977-1978 reached 774 with 15 sections occupying seven classrooms. With this problem on accommodation, Mr. Florencio Dumlao appealed to the national government for a Lagro Annex Building. Through the unrelenting efforts of the department head-in-charge and with the PTA lobbying behind, the 1.3 hectare present school site, and building became a reality. At the opening of classes on June 11, 1978, 923 students flocked the newly constructed building which was a two-story 18-room structure standing proudly with Mrs. Maglipon as head

of the school. She was replaced with Mr. Silverio Reinoso. Mr. Reinoso had to continue with the challenge to manage 19 sections of students with just 32 teachers. It was the significant day of September 1, 1978 that Lagro High School was inaugurated by Mrs. Commemoracion M. Concepcion, the former schools division superintendent. Thus, it has become its foundation day. Hand in hand with the influx of residents in Lagro Subdivision is the continuous increase of student population. And to accommodate this increasing population, a six-room building on the southern site of the campus was constructed. The school then also improved with the completion of concrete fences surrounding the campus, construction of the stage and the new steel flagpole, all to house and educate the community. Mr. Reinoso was replaced by Mrs. Virginia H. Cerrudo on September of 1981. Mrs. Cerrudo was replaced with Ms. Felicidad C. Gutierrez in 1987 bringing another building funded by the city government. The same year created the Lagro High School-Payatas Annex with 257 students. This annex was assigned to Mrs. Sheridan Evangelista, who was then the Social Studies Department Head of the Main School. Promoted as Principal IV, Ms. Gutierres was transferred to E. Rodriguez Jr. High School. Mr. William S. Barcena took her place as the principal of Lagro High School on June 1991. Three years after, Mr. Barcena was replaced by Mrs. Cristina C. Monis, the General Education Supervisor I-English, as Officer-In-Charge on January 8, 1993. Mr. Gil T. Magbanua replaced Mrs. Monis on June 13, 1993

To accommodate the continuous increasing enrollees, the three-story building funded by the Quezon City Government was constructed. The third Annex in Fairview was finally opened with Mrs. Justina A. Farolan as the Teacher-In-Charge.

Dr. Consolacion C. Montano replaced Dr. Gil Magbanua later on with more improvements. Mrs. Sheridan Evangelista made her comeback as the principal of Lagro High School in 1998 with improved facilities and technology advancements for the school. The dawn of more improvements was realized when Dr. Fernando C. Javier became the principal in April 2003. The construction of the new building previously applied by Mrs. Sheridan Evangelista was built and inaugurated by the successor, Dr. Javier. The SB Building and the full renovation of the formerly called Social Hall was transformed into a multi-purpose conference room conveniently equipped with multimedia projectors and modern sound technology now being utilized for events, seminars, workshops by the whole division. The construction of the new gate, renovations of all facilities and the covered court; Lagro High School now boasts of not only its talents but it’s conducive learning ambience sure to provide every learner more motivation to pursue his dreams. Lagro High School reaped achievements in the district, division, regional and national competition under Dr. Javier. The Bureau of Alternative Learning System was established and soon after the Open High School. The Special Education Program was established accepting deaf and blind students. The Guidance Program was also enhanced and improved with the administration of Dr. Javier. International competitions, speech and debate contests sponsored by the government and private companies, Palarong Pambansa, National Schools Press Conference and the creation of the Special Program in the Arts which annually showcases talents in its culminating activities. Today, as we speak, Lagro High School does not only have a growing number of enrollees but also consistently develops as a community that consists of highly competitive and productive members.

Teacher – Tested Tips
Advice for Student Teachers
As a current student teacher with an amazing cooperating teacher, I thought I'd share some tips on how to have a positive student teaching experience! 1. Let your cooperating teacher know YOUR expectations upfront. Most student teachers feel that they don't have a say in what goes on, but you do. 2. Remind him/her (nicely) that you are there to learn a variety of teaching methods and that you are trying to develop your own teaching style not necessarily just take on his/hers. 3. Jump in right away! Even if you aren't supposed to begin teaching for a while get up and join in. You will gain respect from the teacher and the students. Offer right away to do small tasks such as grading papers or organizing morning work. 4. Treat the students as if you are the actual teacher. Many student teachers try to become friends with them first and when it comes time to teach they have no control. 5. Go with your cooperating teacher everywhere! Sit in on parent/teacher conferences and see if it's okay to observe a child study team in action. This is all part of teaching and you should have experience with this also! 6. Stay in contact with your professor or advisor on a regular basis. If you only see him/her on days they are there to observe, you will be more nervous. 7. Always try your best! I know it's scary to have people constantly observing you but if you are doing your best whether or not they are there it won't be as scary! 8. Don't be afraid to integrate some of your own teaching techniques or classroom management skills. Your cooperating teacher might just learn a new technique from you! 9. Try to get student input about your lessons. If you aren't sure how your lesson went, ask one or two students what they thought. Sometimes they have wonderful suggestions! 10. Always plan too much. Since we don't have much experience organzing lessons according to class time, it's better to have too much planned then to have the students sitting there with nothing to do.

If your class is very possessive of you, consider team teaching - this will make it a less traumatic experience for both the class and the student teacher ** 3. If your teaching style (particularly in behaviour management) is vastly different from your prac teachers, warn them that the students may react negatively to change and tell the student teacher what has been working well for you and the routines that you already have established in a class particularly with difficult classes. Let the student teacher decide how they will handle the class ** 4. Remember that the student teacher is still a student, is nervous and is probably highly critical of themselves. Emphasise the positives of their teaching methodology and give gentle suggestions on how they can improve (don't tell them they're doing something wrong without having a suggestion for how it could be improved) ** 5. Allocate a few minutes in the morning each day for the student teacher to discuss lessons, contents and any other concerns.

Take Time To Know Them
by: T. Wide, All Take time to know the student teacher as a person, separate from the class. Then when possible share some positive tidbits with your students and together begin to make the student teacher a part of the class.

Things to Remember
by: todlyn Having been on both ends of the experience I can't say enough about how important your role will be in shaping this new teacher. ** My own student teaching experience was lack-luster. My cooperating teacher thought of me as her ticket out of the classroom. I saw her in the morning, and then she was gone for hours. She gave me very little feed back. In fact, the two major things I garnered from the experience were that I was truly unprepared for the task I had undertaken, and, secondly, I did not know what to do about it. The only word of advice I remember her giving me was that I needed to improve my handwriting. Like that was going to radically improve my teaching! ** As I have continued in teaching, I have also had the chance to serve as a cooperating teacher. From these experiences I would recommend that you: 1) provide an open environment in which your student is able to make mistakes without fear of judgement. ** 2. guide them gently into more effective practices when mistakes are made. ** 3. monitor and make notes on anything that you think you and your student need to discuss regarding their

teaching during your planning period or at the end of the day. Make sure you include lots of positive feedback, too. We all need encouragement. ** 4. never assume that your student knows anything, that includes the CONTENT they are going to teach. (I have just jumped up to fifth grade and am going through a re-education of sorts. Can you believe that some statistics professor forgot to inform me of Pascal's triangle, or better yet that I am teaching it to 10 yearolds!) ** 5. teach your student how to incorporate the standards used in your state if applicable. ** 6. require them to do their own classroom and behavior management. ** 7. provide any pointers for managing those mountains of paper we all know and love. Include information on grading, filing, and parent communications. ** 8. stress the importance of parent involvement and community relations, such as weekly class newsletters, class webpages, etc, ** 9. have a work area set up for your student that includes the office basics such as note pads, stapler, WhiteOut, etc. ** 10. don't walk out and leave him/her. I know you won't do this, or you would not have bother posting this message in the first place. Be sure to provide emotional support as well as a presence in the classroom, too.

How to Be a Good Student Teacher
By an eHow Contributor updated: February 04, 2011 Your student teaching year can be physically and emotionally exhausting. A good student teacher will still manage to be responsible, independent, committed to education, and keep a good sense of humor. 1. Consult at length with your master teacher at the start of the term. Be sure you know what his or her philosophy of teaching and classroom objectives are before you make large plans for classroom activities. 2. Make arrangements with your master teacher to take a few minutes each day to discuss classroom events, possible future activities, and procedure. 3. Inform yourself about any particular school regulations that you and your students must abide by. Know the rules by heart so you can give definite answers to your students, who will be testing your authority. 4. Familiarize yourself with relevant legal issues, such as those concerning child abuse, substance abuse and sexual harassment among students.

5. Show genuine interest in your students' schoolwork and progress, and leave personal relationships with students to the school counselors. 6. Show initiative and independence by assuming responsibility for the preparation of individual lessons or entire learning units. 7. Show resourcefulness by gathering materials and introducing educational methods you are learning in your graduate studies.

Student Teaching Tips
5 Keys to Success
Submitted by Amy from Wisconsin Grade 1-5; Math Support Teacher As a second year teacher, I am not much of a stranger to the student teaching experience. In my opinion, if you keep the following five points in mind, you will be sure to experience success. #1 Be Original! Teachers, staff members, and administration will appreciate someone who brings a unique personality to the student teaching experience. Teachers aren’t looking for a carbon copy of themselves, so be yourself. #2 Be Innovative! This is your time to take all that you have learned and apply it to your teaching. Let the knowledge, ideas, and experiences you acquired along the way fuel your teaching. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Ask your cooperating teacher to allow you to try that lesson or activity you worked so hard to create. #3 Collaborate! It is very important to network with all teachers, staff members, and administrators within the school community. The young teachers who go the extra mile to collaborate are the ones remembered down the road for prospective positions. #4 Be Dedicated! Always show a passion for what you do. Take advantage of opportunities to become involved with activities outside of school if possible. Schools will applaud the efforts of someone who always is willing to give 110%

#5 Have fun! You can do all of the things above, but will be missing out on one of the greatest aspects of the education profession if you forget to have fun. Enjoy the students; they will make you smile every day. Enjoy your colleagues; they are wonderful role models. Enjoy the experience; it is something that you will carry along into your teaching career!

16 Top Tips
Submitted by Catherine from New Jersey Primary Teacher 1. Let your cooperating teacher know YOUR expectations upfront. Most student teachers feel that they don't have a say in what goes on, but you do. 2. Remind him/her (nicely) that you are there to learn a variety of teaching methods and that you are trying to develop your own teaching style not necessarily just take on his/hers. 3. Go with your cooperating teacher everywhere! Sit in on parent/teacher conferences and see if it's okay to observe a child study team in action. This is all part of teaching and you should have experience with this also! 4. Stay in contact with your professor or advisor on a regular basis. If you only see him/her on days they are there to observe, you will be more nervous. 5. Always try your best! I know it's scary to have people constantly observing you but if you are doing your best whether or not they are there it won't be as scary! 6. Don't be afraid to integrate some of your own teaching techniques or classroom management skills. Your cooperating teacher might just learn a new technique from you! 7. Try to get student input about your lessons. If you aren't sure how your lesson went, ask one or two students what they thought. Sometimes they have wonderful suggestions! 8. Always plan too much. Since we don't have much experience organzing lessons according to class time, it's better to have too much planned then to have the students sitting there with nothing to do. 9. Be On Time 10. Dress Appropriately 11. Follow the School Rules 12. Befriend the Office Staff (This is especially important if you believe that you will be staying in the area and possibly trying for a job at the school where you are teaching. These people's opinions of you will have an impact on whether or not you are hired. They

can also make your time during student teaching much easier to handle. Don't underestimate their worth.) 13. Maintain Confidentiality (Remember that if you are taking notes about students or classroom experiences to turn in for grades, you should either not use their names or change them to protect their identities. You never know who you are teaching or what their relationship might be to your instructors and coordinators.) 14. Don't Gossip (It might be tempting to hang out in the teacher lounge and indulge in gossip about fellow teachers. However, as a student teacher this would be a very risky choice. You might say something you could regret later. You might find out information that is untrue and clouds your judgement. You might even offend someone without realizing it. Remember, these are teachers you could be working with again some day in the future. ) 15. Be Professional With Fellow Teachers (Do not interrupt other teachers' classes without an absolutely good reason. When you are speaking with your coordinating teacher or other teachers on campus, treat them with respect. You can learn a lot from these teachers, and they will be much more likely to share with you if they feel that you are genuinely interested in them and their experiences. ) 16. Don't Wait to the Last Minute to Call in Sick (You will probably get sick at some point during your student teaching and will need stay home for the day. You must remember that the regular teacher will have to take over the class during your absence. If you wait until the last minute to call in, this could leave them in an awkward bind making them look bad to the students. Call as soon as you believe you will not be able to make it to class.)

6 Tips from 10-Year Teacher
Submitted by Angela from North Carolina Second Grade Teacher After teaching for more that ten years, there are several things that a student teacher should know. 1. It is important that you strive to get to know your parents. You should start out by trying to introduce yourself to all the parents by the end of the first week. It can be a simple phone call and be sure to tell the parents something good that the child did that week. This is very important so when you have to call the parent about behavior that is not good,so that the parent will not think that the only time you call is when the child is misbehavior. 2. It is also important that you be consistent if whatever behavior plan that you have. If you say that you are going to do it. You must follow through.

3. Remember that you are dealing with children and even if you do not feel that you are in control,you need to act like you are. 4. Give positive words to the each child and make him/her feelimportant on a regular basis. Each child is important and is not a mistake or accident. A lot of children have very low self-esteem. 5. Even if a child consistently misbehaviors, you must strive to not let the child see how the behavior affects you. This will come with time and practice. 6. Take time for yourself. It can be walking, reading a novel or a bubblebath. Remember that tomorrow is another day and that you are making a difference in a child's life.

Prepare for Transition from Student to Teacher
Submitted by Gail from Massachusetts Third Grade Teacher My advice for student teachers is start to prepare for making the transition of being a college student to a student teacher, by purchasing a few clothes to make your wardrobe a little more professional than your college attire. Also, be sure to have a comfortable pair of shoes on hand. Also, since you will be collecting so many wonderful ideas from the teachers you'll be working with, it may be helpful to have a binder separated by subject to store all of the handouts, worksheets, and ideas offered by your cooperating teacher and his/her colleagues. In addition, you may want to have a digital camera on hand to take pictures of work you have done (i.e. bulletin boards), as well as how teachers have set up their classrooms, etc. By the end of your student teaching practicum, you will have an organized resource that will be a valuable tool for when you start first teaching position. Pace yourself, and keep up with your assignments, so that you'll be able to maintain your social life. Always allow time for making adjustments, especially when preparing to be observed. You never know when the photocopy machine may break down, or the laminator isn't working, so you always want to have a back up plan! Lastly, enjoy your student teaching experience. Go into school with a smile on your face, and know that you have the greatest job in the world because you can make a difference in child's life, and have fun while doing it!

Learn from the Best
Submitted by Angie from Louisiana Third Grade Teacher

As a student teacher, you are very eager and excited to save the world. However, once you enter the classroom and it is just you and the students it can become overwhelming. My best advice to you would be before the first day of school, go and meet some of the veteran teachers at your school. Talk to them about the dynamics of your school. Ask them what has worked well for them over the years. Then use what they tell you and adapt it to your style. Veteran teachers are the best resource that you have. Remember kids are people too, and all they want is someone to love them and guide them. You will be everything they don't have at home while they are with you. If you respect them, they will perform well and respect you. Good Luck!

Empowerment
Submitted by Tammy from Texas 2nd Grade Teacher and "Toddler Time" Teacher The most important advice I would share is to empower all (every age group) that you come in contact with. This is done by really listening and not merely hearing what others are sharing. Looking into their eyes when you are listening and talking can make a person feel validated and can even boost their self-esteem. Finally, letting a person keep their dignity when there may be a misunderstanding can speak volumes of your wisdom and self-control. Do this by sharing your thoughts and then listening to theirs. Agree to disagree if no resolution on the particular topic cannot be met. Respect one another and respect yourself enough to let your voice be heard. Knowledge is wonderful and knowing how to communicate with everyone is superb. Best wishes to you as you enter the world of teaching and making a difference in the lives of others.

Sherri's Six Bits of Advice
Submitted by Sherri from Pennsylvania Second Grade Teacher 1. My advice is to be as organized as you can and do one thing at a time. Know that you will spend long hours working both before and after school and set a schedule for yourself so you can stay on top of things, yet still have a life. You still need to eat and sleep! 2. Keep a notebook for each subject and file everything your cooperating teacher is willing to share with you in it. 3. Take pictures of bulletin boards and projects to file as well. 4. Ask if you can pick up one subject at a time and give back one at a time to ease the transition for both yourself and your students.

5. Take constructive criticism constructively and at least try the suggestions. Your cooperating teacher only wants to see you succeed and has been doing this a lot longer than you. 6. Finally, enjoy the experience! All the hard work pays off!

Taking Initiative
Another Submission from Kathy from Kentucky 4th Grade Teacher When you begin student teaching take the initiative, don't wait for the teacher to have to tell you step by step what to do. Be an observer of the teacher and try to zero in on things to help them with ahead of time. Help students immediately, this shows you are ready and willing to assume the role of a teacher. Most great teachers jump right in and help, that is how you learn to be a great teacher.

Traci's Ten Tips
Submitted by Traci from California 4th Grade Teacher The TOP TEN Advice List for Student Teachers: 1. Work Hard - put in extra hours. 2. Make a good first impression - smile and introduce yourself to everyone - especially the school secretaries! Dress appropriately and professionally - you are on one long interview. 3. Listen and take notes every day. 4. Observe and DO what you are asked to do. 5. Ask questions and listen to the answers, use all that knowledge before proceeding! 6. Go out to recess and watch the students interact with each other - you'll learn a lot that will help you in the classroom. 7. Stay out of teacher lunch room politics and drama! 8. Be creative and use good lesson plan formats that will be engaging and fun for the students but include appropriate standards and assessments. 9. Be firm but loving with students from the get go - if they know the limits you are then able to have fun and smile and laugh with your students and fellow teachers!

10. Stay positive - student teaching isn't forever - soon you will have your own classroom remember that's the GOAL!

Keep Them Busy!
Submitted by Vance from Florida 9th Grade English Teacher Keep the kids busy, academically engaged. Learn what bell to bell teaching means. If you don't have anything for the kids to do, they will find something to do and that spells T R O U B L E !

Confidence is Key!
Submitted by Karen from New Jersey MY ADVICE THAT I HAVE FOR A STUDENT TEACHER IS: Be confident. Even if you don't feel confident, pretend! The students are similar to animals , they can sense your hesitance or fear. Therefore, establish authority at the beginning. Don't let them get away with being rude or disrespectful to you or you will have trouble maintaining control in the classroom later on. ALSO, Get to know the student's names as soon as possible. Use little tricks like taking pictures or writing down a few names everyday with a few notes about the child, or relate it to their art work. It is true that you learn the best and the most challenging students's names first, but try really hard to learn the rest quickly. I think Knowing names helps keep the classroom in order and keep the students in line. Student's will snap to attention it they hear thier name, but if you yell "Hey you stop!" across the classroom, they may choose to ignore it.

Fran's Fantastic Tips
Submitted by Fran from Ohio High School Intervention Specialist From day one my advice would be: RESPECT! You will receive it as long as you give it in turnnot only to your peers-most importantly to your students no matter how old they may be. Also to their parents. Keep in mind that you are responsible for what matters the most to them in their lives:their children. College does not "teach" your how to do this-it should be a part of your love for children. Always look & act professional- dress and act as though you might always run into someone involved with school - you never know who you might run into.

Take time for the little extras- positive reinforcement such as "glad you're on time for class today." Learn from your peers. You might not always agree with their teaching methods but there might be something that you will be able to relate to and have a better understanding of as time goes on in your career. Yes, you'll be overwhelmed-who isn't when they begin something new. Keep time for yourself EVERYDAY!!! Even if it's just for a few minutes to do whatever you enjoy doing. This will help to ease the pressure & clear you mind. Most important, remember that we cannot save all of them-just be there for them on a daily basis and you'll be surprised of the difference you can make in their lives.

Sound Advice from a 35-Year Veteran Teacher
Submitted by Deborah from North Carolina Second Grade Teacher After teaching for 35 years and loving today more than ever I have found the secret. Keep up. Do not procrastinate. Use every free minute you have at school to do your work at school. Organize your system and your time. Let your goal be to do your work at school and when you leave to go home do not take work with you. Understand now that as a new teacher you will probably not accomplish this for the first three yaars. During this time period please designate a day or the weekend to have "school free" taking no work home. You will be a better teacher and less likely to burn out if you try this. Believe me!

Keep Your Sense of Humor; Ask For Help
Submitted by Cathie from Arkansas P-4 Special Education One of the most important things to remember when going into the teaching profession is to never lose your sense of humor. And plan, plan, plan. Always keep something up your sleeve to use if you need it. Never be afraid to ask for help. Learn how to dog paddle - forget the triple flips off the high board.

Two Important Things
Submitted by Christina from Georgia Special Education Teacher I would tell new teachers two very important things. The first thing I would tell them is to go home! Teaching can be a very overwhelming job and if you aren't careful you will find yourself at work until 6 at night! By recognizing that everything cannot be accomplished in one day, no matter how tempting it is to try. I would also tell a new teacher to remember that

education is a serious career path and that events are indeed a chance to network with other teachers or supervisors.

Don't Be Intimidated By the Kids
Submitted by Michelle from New York Homeschool Teacher I think that as a student teacher you should make sure not to be intimidated by the kids. That will show them that they can take advantage of you. I think you should be firm and be able to listen to the students when they ask questions or have opinions. Make sure you are always prepared for whatever questions they may have so as to not show that you don't know as much as them.

Prepare for Your Own Classroom
Submitted by Emily from Minnesota Third Grade Teacher Buy a bunch of file folders and as you and your cooperating teacher complete activities or lessons, make a file folder and label it for that activity. Also, meet with other teachers at other grade levels to gather materials and ideas. Take photos of bulletin board ideas you like and file those with lessons to go with them. These resources will be so helpful when you have a classroom of your own.

Write Everything Down and Take Pictures
Submitted by Janet from Kentucky Third Grade Teacher The best advice I would give a student teacher is to write everything down and take pictures. When I was student teaching, I had a large notebook and I wrote down everything the teacher wrote on the board, lesson plans, tricks she told me. I also took pictures of classroom arrangements and bullentin boards. This has been very helpful when trying to arrange my room and ideas for displays.

Be Creative. Try New Things
Submitted by Doresa from Georgia Kindergarten Teacher Not many times in life do you get a "test run". Use it to your advantage. Be creative. Do the things you really thought about doing in your head. You get an opportunity to test out those

ideas in a safe environment with a level of support and encouragement you may have a hard time finding again. Use this opportunity for all that you can get out of it.

Be Real. Some Mistakes Are OK.
Another Great Idea Submitted by Doresa from Georgia Kindergarten Teacher Don't try to be perfect, be real. Teach how you "really" think you may be in the classroom when it is your own. You are still a student and you are expected to make mistakes. However, it will be very hard for you to truly grow if you don't show your true self in the classroom environment.

Challenges Will Make You a Better Teacher
Submitted by Rachael from New York First Grade Teacher You should go into Student Teaching knowing that there will be challenges that you probably won't expect, but will ultimately make you all the better prepared for the real thing. You will experience situations that they never taught you in college, and you may be caught off guard from it. Just use your instincts and ask for help if you need it. There will be lots of people to offer help--your Cooperating teacher, other teachers in the school, your supervisor, other student teachers, etc. Getting advice and showing you're confident in what you're doing will impress your C/T and your supervisor. By the time student teaching ends, you will be surprised how many students' lives you have touched; regardless of the short amount of time you may be in the classroom. Just have fun with it! The more fun you have, the more you will get out of it and be prepared to have your own classroom soon!

Don't Be Discouraged
Submitted by Keith from New York High School Science For all student teachers just starting out, don't be discouraged by all the hard work you're doing right now without being paid. When you start teaching, there's really two ways you get paid: first by the money you get for your hard work, but second by the difference you make in a childs life. It may seem like a difficult job, and it really is, but the reward for helping a child achieve something they didn't think they could is worth more than anything you'd ever experience in any other job. Don't be discouraged by the difficulties you'll encounter, but learn from them. When you help even one child, you've accomplished more than most people in other professions ever will.

The difference you make will be profound, even before you ever start collecting a paycheck, and that makes it all worth it.

Something Special for Students
Submitted by Cecelia from Mississippi Kindergarten and First Grade Muulti-Age Classroom Student teachers can welcome back students with something just for them!! Make magnetic nametags, goody bags, or specially addressed mail. You could also have the class make a crafty photo frame that they can decorate and add a picture of themselves from the first day of school. Give them something unique (not expensive) to show that your are reaching out to them and you care. Sadly today many children don't have many caring individuals in their home environment.

Know Your Students!
Submitted by Beth from Georgia 4th - 6th Grade, Special Education Resource Teacher Student teachers should first strive to become acquainted with their students as individuals. By learning their strenghts and weaknesses future teachers will not only help their students to see their gifts-but they will be memorable to supervising teachers as well. It is essential to learn organizational skills (observe as many effective teachers as possible) yet it is very important to remember to be flexible! Your co workers,parents and others will appreciate a cooperative spirit Above all-remember to treat each child like you would want your child to be treated. Remember to laugh and remember to love each day.

You Are Making a Difference
Submitted by Diane from North Carolina Pre-K Teacher I have been teaching preschool children for over ten years and I love it. Alot of people ask me "How do you do it?" My best advice is to see each child as a unique individual, no matter what their background is. And remember, every child is capable of learning even if it's not at the same time or in the same manner! Most of all relax and enjoy your job... because you are making a difference in a child's life!

Dee's Advice
Submitted by Dee from Toronto First Grade Teacher Being a student teacher is a challenge! It's like learning to drive from the passenger seat, because you are not the one in charge. It's not your classroom. This can be seen as an advantage if your host teacher is willing to jump in and rescue you when the class is acting wild, or a disadvantage if you want to be in control but your host teacher isn't handing over the reins or supporting you in front of the students. My advice is to clearly state your expectations to your host teacher and ask her/him for their expectations at the same time. Be open to feedback. Be courteous and respectful at all times, especially in the staffroom where the walls have ears and your comments could be overheard by anyone. Above all, enjoy! These few months before you embark on your own new career are precious and unique in the opportunity to ask questions, try new things and soak up all the information you can about teaching and learning. The best piece of advice I received as a student teacher: if you are using the photocopier and a permanent teacher is waiting in line behind you, LET THEM GO FIRST!

Chin Up!
Submitted by Susan from North Carolina First Grade Teacher I would tell Student Teachers to take in as much as they possibly can! Have conversations with their cooperating teacher and listen to every piece of advice they get. Go home at night and reflect on the day and journal about the things you'd do again and what you'd change. Learn how to organize your lessons and paperwork and make sure to get as much experience with the kids as you can. I took loads of pictures so that I could remember what activities looked like! Chin UP! It's not easy!

Simply Be Yourself
Submitted by Theresa from Tennessee Elementary Teacher Know that you are capable of being the best teacher you can be by simply being yourself, take advantage of teachable moments that spring out of no where and use that to introduce new ideas and if things stray from your desired path, you can always redirect them. Most of all know that suggestion are just suggestion and teach the best way that works for you that get results.

Believe in Your Students
Submitted by Lacrecia from Georgia Third Grade Teacher I help to train new teachers in our system and I believe the best advice that I give them is to believe that all students are capable of learning. As a teacher, our responsibility is to find out

how each student learns and build our lessons around that information. Yes it takes extra time and planning. It also requires us to be flexible and creative. But, isn't that what great teaching is all about?

Great Thoughts from Deanna
Submitted by Deanna from Utah 4th Grade Teacher First of all, you need to remember that you are the guest in the classroom. Although you may have great ideas, and perhaps better ones than your cooperating teacher, you still need to go by their schedule for you. Don't forget that they will be filling out your performance sheet when it's all over and you want as good of marks as you can get. Go with their flow. Secondly, you will realize that most of what you learned in your college classes don't really prepare you for this. You just have to dive into it and go. You may feel like you are glued to your lesson plans, textbooks constantly looking at the clock to see when it's time to go on to the next thing, etc., but don't worry, we all did that. One day it starts to click and you can multitask and feel like you've got it down a little better each day. Lastly, If you feel too overwhelmed, remember that this will be ending soon. It's a hoop you've got to jump through. One day you will have your very own classroom to manage however you want. And that is the rewarding prize for going through student teaching.

Impress Your C.T.
Submitted by Listette from Florida Second Grade Teacher Well first off, be prepared for anything. Never underestimate the power of a child. Set high expectations for the class and let them know what you want from them. As far as impressing the cooperating teacher, take the initiative. If you've learned about something you are interested in trying or making, do it. If the teacher questions you, explain where you are coming from and how you feel it will benefit the students. Communication is the best tool ever no matter what. If you do have concerns talk to your teacher or supervisor. Don't wait until it is too late. After all, they signed up for a reason also. This is a learning experience to try and best prepare you for your own classroom someday.

Learning Styles
Submitted by Judy from New Jersey

You should know each child's individual learning style, and teach each child keeping that in mind. USE MANY AIDS AND manipulatives for a hands on approach. Remember each child has a special intelligence, even though you may not see it at first.It could be verbal non verbal musical, artistic, etc.

More About Learning Styles
Submitted by Trudy from Gradeschool Homeschool Family As a homeschooling mother of three, it amazes me how different the learning styles of my children are. In a classroom of 20+ children, these differences would be great. I would encourage a student teacher to study the students and the way they take in information in order to make the learning environment helpful to all.

Sub Before Graduating
Submitted by Monique from Arkansas 6th Grade Teacher My advice would be....SUB before graduating!!! Remember that students are behaving a certain way for you only because their full time teacher is close by. All education majors should substitute teach in different grade levels (especially junior highs)before going too far in their course work.This would give student teachers a pretty good idea of how a rough day might feel you're on your own with 28 hormonal teenagers.

Work Well with Everyone
Submitted by Christine from Kansas IR Special Education K-4 Get to know your custodial crew and secretaries. They can make or break how your year will go. It is a lot easier to access thing that you want when you are on good terms with the people who take care of the school and run the place. I would also advise that if you have any children with disabilities and on IEPs that you work very closely with the Special Education teacher. These children can have a hard time adjusting to how you run your classroom and it always takes a team to make it through the first few weeks. Keep an open mind and remember to relax and go with the flow. Everything will eventually work its way out and if it does there will be changes made. Remember that the children in Special Ed are just that children, and should be treated with the same respect as the other children in your class.

Send Signals of Encouragement
Submitted by Robyn from Missouri

Grade 3 and 4 Teacher Wow there is so much to know about working in a classroom with students that no college course could ever teach you and that's basically your entire experience as a teacher. College doesn't teach you as the individual being train to teach your own personal experience and thats what you will gain from the teaching field: A personal experiences working with students. Two things I do want to share is that as a new teacher, walk in the classroom aware that the faces you see are the many different learning styles you are about to embark upon. If you need help understanding learning styles, theorists Howard Gardener does a wonderful job explaining the differen multiple intelligences which will help you with your journey. My favorite tip is your signals that you send to a child. This is simply how you speak to them and how what you say can be interpreted differently by a child. For example, if you say, "No, that answer is wrong," a child may think you're calling them dumb. If you exchange papers and have students grade their peers work, the student with all their answers wrong may see themselve as a failure. So please, do me a huge favor as you enter the teaching field, send signals of encouragement and remember, you are going to be a teacher, mentor, counselor, principal, mother, father, grandmother, pet, doctor, lawyer, judge, and whatever else your students may need you as but most importantly, a friend they can trust. Get ready for your muli-talented adventure.

Enjoy the Ride of Your Life!
Submitted by Melinda from Ohio 3rd Grade Teacher The best advice that I can offer to a college student beginning their student teaching is to realize that they are a viable part of the classroom that they are entering. They must ask questions and observe the routines of the classroom and reflect on what works and what doesn’t. As a new member of the teaching team it is their responsibility to be professional in dress, preparation and commitment. It is a learning experience for both the student teacher and the classroom students. It is important to be on time and professional at all times. Your students are counting on you to teach them and to have the leadership skills necessary to manage the classroom. If you become overwhelmed, talk with your cooperating teacher. They were once in your shoes and they can help you work through any concerns. Don’t be afraid to try out various teaching skills and techniques because this is how an upcoming teacher learns. College has prepared you for teaching, but it has not prepared you for the typical classroom. You must realize that people are not as simple as the lessons that you studied. You have to be able to make quick decisions and have the flexibility to change your course of action at a moments notice. Be humorous, excited about what you are teaching, patient

with even the most difficult student and forgiving of yourself. Start each day with a clean slate and enjoy the ride of your life!

Let the Principal Observe
Submitted by Annesa from Tennessee Grade 4 Always go to the teachers around you for information from different grades. Also, allow the principal to review your lesson plans and possibly evaluate your teaching. I looks really good on your resume. Have fun, be firm, and enjoy what you do.

Be Positive; Don't Be Too Hard on Yourself
Submitted by Chris from Georgia Second Grade Teacher Everyone that observes you will focus on what you need to improve. Be sure that you focus on what it is that you are doing that is positive and working too. I always tell my student teachers to keep your eyes and ears open to what other teachers are doing that is working. Don't get down on yourself if something doesn't work. Next time change it up a little and try it again and you will be successful! Enjoy what you're doing!

Live, Eat, and Breathe Teaching
Submitted by Marcy from New York Fourth Grade Teacher Almost in every occupation there's that moment where everything matters. In teaching, that moment is when you student teach. It all comes down to a few weeks of proving to everyone that you can put into practice all that you've learned in theory. Live, eat, and breath only teaching during this time. Go above and beyond what is expected. Have open communication with your cooperating teacher. Show up early and leave late. The spotlight is on you- it's your time to shine. Show them what you've got. Own your moment.

Principal Observations; Subbing
Submitted by Kim from Illinois Third Grade Teacher

Once you are regularly teaching the class, invite the principal in to observe. This will give you an edge if interviewing for a position within the school after you have completed your student teaching. In addition, get to know the rest of the staff: other teachers, secretary, janitors, special ed, etc. Become a "part" of the faculty/school. Finally, sub at the school after you student teach (especially if graduate in Dec). In my situation, there were over 100 applications for one position and I got it! I was more than "just another application on a piece of paper."

Organization is Key
Submitted by Janet from Florida Third Grade Teacher The advice that I would give a student teacher is to be very organized and to not give up no matter what. Student teaching is a time to get a taste of what being a teacher is really like. At first it might be overwhelming with all that needs to be done. When you finish one thing than another thing comes up. It can get to a point that you might think that you can not make it. But if you are organize it might make things much easier. Besides being knowledgable and creative in the classroom, orgainztion is also a key component in being successful. In my experiences, being organized will impress a principal or supervisor. Good Luck! (Once you complete your first year of teaching it will get easier as the years pass by and you will become an expert at what you do.)

The Notebook
Submitted by Linda from Florida Guidance Counselor My advice would be to get a notebook and divide it into sections like bulletin board ideas, behavior managment, reading, math, etc. When they see a good idea write it in their notebook. Observe other classrooms as much as you can. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn from people who are teachers.

Okay to Make Mistakes
Submitted by Rodrigo from Brazil University Teacher You must know your students very well, try to use their English skills in the process. Respect the differences and use them to achieve your goals. Besides this, it's important to build an environment where the students feel free to use their own English, express their thoughts, and make their mistakes, all as a natural part of the process.

On the Job Training
Submitted by Julia from Indiana 5th Grade Teacher

Pay VERY close attention to the veteran teacher. Watch for time management ideas that work and ask many questions about how to manage time when filling in lesson plans. I believe a large part of teaching is ON THE JOB TRAINING. Work hard at building relationships with the students. RESPECT goes a LONG way!

Make kids feel like they are the "Smartest and Best!"
Submitted by Bridgette from Alabama Pre-Kindergarten Teacher First of all school does not prepare you for the actual classroom. There will be great veteran teachers to guide you through your first year. My advice is to be observant of your peers. If you see a teacher that is loving and kind but also has control of her students, GET TO KNOW THEM FAST!! They will be a great asset. Get to know your students/parents personally. Make yourself available for concerned parents. Give your students a high five or a hug each and every day. Make your students feel like they are the smartest and best that your school has. Have a discipline plan ready for the first day. Get plenty of rest and pray!!!

Hands-On Learning
Submitted by Redralynd from Texas Last year was my first year teaching. I would tell a student teacher to be as hands on as possible. Write lesson plans and use them in the class you are working in. You don't learn half of what you need to know just by going to school. I have a Masters degree in special education and I still felt like I needed to learn so much more. Working with children with autism is fun, but challenging. Be sure you know the group of students you want to work with before it is time to find that job.

Make a difference. Kids are counting on you!
Submitted by Susan from Florida 2nd Grade Teacher My advice to student teachers would be to take notes and photographs of the ideas you see your classroom teacher using that you would like to duplicate in your own classroom. Veteran teachers are a wealth of information and ideas. Ask for copies of worksheets or lesson plans for future use. Visit other classrooms in the school you are doing your student teaching in. Observe the different teaching styles of other teachers to see various ways to present a lesson. If you see something you like, mold it into your own style. Plan on arriving early to work with your classroom teacher before the students arrive. Stay after school to discuss which lessons were effective and what changes may need to be made. Don't feel you must deliver your lessons the exact same way your supervising teacher did. We recently had two interns who are carbon copies of the teachers they interned with. Be yourself! Be prepared for anything. Expect the unexpected.

Kids will be kids. Everyday is a new day. On the days you are frustrated or overwhelmed, just remember the kids are counting on you. Making a difference in even one child's life is a rewarding experience. Good luck!

Differentiated Instruction
Submitted by Carmen from Florida 3-5 Science Lab Teacher Pay close attention to methods of differentiating instruction for learners as this becomes invaluable throughout your teaching career. Steal any and all ways of staying organized. Organization is what saves you at the end of a long teaching day. The 2 best ways to make sure you impress your supervising teacher or edu professor are to make sure your students are actively engaged and keep that smile on your face. :)

Combine Multiple Skills
Submitted by Adrienne from Maryland Fourth and Fifth Grade Teacher Remain patient and encouraging. Think of creative lessons that can combine multiple skills like an English worksheet that asks a student to write about the lifecycle of a caterpillar (which is also science-based). These type of lessons encourage the student to learn two subjects in one worksheet. You may also combine music or art as some students enjoy learning lessons through music sing-alongs (like rap songs), finger-painting their thoughts or understanding of the lesson. Dancing along with a lesson can promote physical exercise for a healthy heart and clear mind. Encourage children who are learning at a faster pace to also assist/encourage others who need additional help. This will discourage competition and encourage building self-esteem, compassion, and an overall cooperative learning environment. Remember to praise every good effort and repeat important hints or skills because children learn faster through repetition. Make the learning process as fun for you as it is for the student. Try dressing up similar to history characters. This might help students to remember the lesson or add humor to a subject which might appear less interesting. By doing this, both you and your students will look forward to each day or lesson.

Take Initiative & Show What You Can Do!
Submitted by Stephanie from Georgia 4th Grade A good student teacher is one that can assert him or herself in a positive way. Many teachers aren't willing to let go of the reigns so to speak so a good student teacher will have to take the initiative to show the classroom teacher what they are can do. When given small tasks

do them with vigor and excellence. Listen to your classroom teacher and take all criticism constructively. Most of all get to know the students and have fun. Of course student teaching is just wetting your whistle and will most likely be nothing like your first year on your own so take from it what you can. Spend time with other teachers in the building and observing different strategies and styles of teaching.

Don't Be Afraid to Ask for Help
Submitted by Shari from Louisiana 5th Grade The best advice I could give a student teacher is never be afraid to ask for help, even if it's help with something as simple as how to use the copy machine. I know at this stage in the game you feel like you know everything and that college has completely prepared you, but you'll never be 100% prepared until the day you retire because every class is different and every child different. So ask for advice and help, even with the small things.

Difference Between Friendly and Friend
Submitted by Barb from Missouri 3rd Grade Do not try to be the students friend. You can be friendly, however, you are there to teach not make friends. Always be fair and consistent, I know we sometimes have favorites, however, you can not show that. If your wonderful student messes up then you need to treat them like everyone else, that's part of being consistent and fair.

Challenge Yourself
Submitted by Cheryl Lynn from South Carolina Grades 3-5 Go for it! This is your time to shine with a lot of support. Take the most difficult placement you can get, be it a grade level you are not sure of teaching, a 'rough' or 'difficult' school, whatever it is just do it. The reason I say this is if you can make it there you can make it ANYWHERE!

Know Your Students
Submitted by Terry from Mississippi 4th Grade Teacher Be flexible. You never know the situations that each child must live with away from school. Sometimes disruptive children may be starved to death for good, honest, and sincere attention. Instead of constantly scolding the disruptive child, try making that child your "helper"

for the day. Be quick to acknowlege a dispruptive child when you "catch" him or her being good. Sometimes, a child is looking for someone's approval.

Truth Revealed - Teachers' Confidence in Teaching and Students' Competence Has Connection
By Larry Icabandi Nabiong For a great teacher, never mediocrity be the stamp of his teaching. Students learn best when his teacher is authentic enough to teaching basic things in learning which would make his students learn by doing. Nary a teaching is effective if there is no clear-cut plan, sane strategies, and valid assessments after a unit or what. Yes, confidence in teaching is vital to ensure effective learning. Sans the mastery of the lesson taught, of course, students will not get the skills, knowledge, values and the like that would contribute to their success towards self-actualization. Instead, they would just be wasting time and never be experiencing a meaningful learning encounter with the teacher who would rather be a good worker but teaching. Well, not all teachers have this skills in imparting knowledge, more so, if they were lacking the passion and all to teaching. Yes, there is a need for a kind of inner strength that whatever happen along the way still he persists doing his job-- and doing it well as he can. Mediocrity in teaching can be seen through the attitude of students toward his teaching. Instead of being motivated learners they learn to reject his style of teaching and never become learners with passion. Yes, we could not give what we did not have. We can only teach what we know and feel confident about. That is why, there is a must to ensuring mastery of the needed skills, knowledge and all before letting one to teach. With the help of experts around, a not- soconfident teacher must let himself be given all sorts of help and accept the fact that he needs other people to learning teaching effectively through sane strategies for his students' welfare. The future of the students' learning lies in the hands of the teachers and should be given the needed support-- both not- so- confident teachers and not-so- competent students--for them to enjoy their quest to teaching and learning. Yes, confidence in teaching can be had only if you have the mastery of your subject taught, and competence by students can be had only through giving them a confident teacher. Ensuring teachers' confidence can be had through learning and getting the needed support from experts around who would never waste time giving them the needed support. Mentors are just around; they would be more than willing to extend help. Why not let them be of help and making your students benefit from your collaborations and all? Today's teaching calls for open-mindedness to accepting others' support than merely ignoring the solution to problems making students learning not-so-pleasant an experience. Teachers can change the scenario by changing attitudes, gaining more expertise in teaching and accepting the fact that collaboration can make wonders to effective, efficient teaching.

Achievement test results are gauged of teachers' effectiveness. Whatever the results, teachers must start from there and do the needed effort to augment or maintain the results, er surpass expectations for each teacher is accountable enough to exert effort making a difference to students' learning quest. Yes, once we are aware of the situation we know how to deal with it, with grace and confidence.  Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/3625484

Don’t Confuse ICT Education with ICT Tools-Educators
By Erwin Oliva INQUIRER.net 05/30/2008 MAKATI City, Philippines -- Information and communications technology (ICT) education is not only about providing ICT tools to teachers, an educator told INQUIRER.net. Shyamal Majumdar, director general of the Colombo Plan Staff College for Technician Education (CPSC), said ICT education has to be integrated in the learning process in schools.

"We should emphasize the pedagogical process in ICT education," Majumdar said. "Sometimes, ICT education is confused with ICT tools." In a paper he presented during an international symposium on "Emerging Trends in ICT Education" organized by the CPSC in collaboration with other organizations, Majumdar showed that there are various stages of integrating ICT in education. He said there are at least four stages: emerging, applying, infusing and transforming. He said that the emerging stage means that teachers are just becoming aware of the potentials of ICT in education. The applying stage is when teachers are starting to learn how to use ICT for teaching and learning. The infusing stage is when a host of ICT tools are used and integrated into the curriculum. Finally, the transforming stage involves the development of new ways of teaching and learning using ICT to explore real-world problems through innovative learning. "Learning is not a transfer of knowledge, rather it is an active construction," he said. "Technology and teachers’ professional development in its use are best introduced in the context of broader education reform which embraces a shift away from teacher-centered, lecture-oriented training toward learner-centered, interactive and constructive learning environment," he said. CPSC is an inter-governmental organization for human resources and development, established in 1973 by 26 participating countries including the Philippines. The CPSC aims to help member-countries in enhancing technician education systems.  Sources: http://newsinfo.inquirer.net

December 6-10, 2011 In my first week in Lagro High School as student teacher of Technology and Livelihood Education Elective (Food Service) was a good experience. I was so happy that my cooperating teacher is very kind to me and she always guides me everyday we having a class. She allow me to observed in my first week in her class. She gave me an idea in each section that she was handle in every period. But in Tuesday, in our last period I am the one who lecture to them because I feel bored. My cooperating teacher just smile at me when she entered the room and allow me to continue to discuss up to the end. I taught them a lesson about meat cuts and different market forms of meat. Then, the next day I taught about poultry. They all listen to me and give attention on our topic. I really happy in my students that time because all of them are cooperating in our discussion. Friday afternoon I taught, fish and shellfish. I learn to my critic that there are different market forms of shellfish and how are the proper way of cooking it. While Im discussing, my critic only listen to me at the back and there is a question she is the one who answer it. I learn many things from her. I was so happy in this week. I hope there is more lessons and topic that I will learn from my cooperating teacher. I think, I will learn also here in this elective food service, how to cook. Well, actuallly I don’t have a talent in cooking, maybe that is God’s plan for me to learn here in my subject. I believe that I will get more knowledge in this subject more than I expected. And I was so thankful that I survived this first week of our practicum in student teaching.

December 13-16, 2011

It was a second week of my student teaching in Lagro High School. I really enjoy teaching Food Service II in fourth year high school. I have a lots of knowledge that I learned in this elective. Im so excited in this week because our students have their project making which is “chocolate making”. I and my cooperating teacher assist them in their project. I observed them while they are working in our kitchen where it serves as their laboratory. I give them a hand when they need something to use in their project. I always go around them to see if they do it right. I also learn from them, what is the proper way of melting a chocolate and using mallows as decoration in their project. In other hand, I found out that if there is a water in their chocolate or even a little bit of drops, it will not become solid chocolate when they put it into a molder. This procedure serve as a note for me to remember when I melt a chocolate and put it into a cold place to be solid again. Thanks for this week, that was full of enjoyment and experience in chocolate making. I also enjoy the company of some of my students who share stories while they are busy in making their projects. I hope this coming week will be more enjoying for them and have a merry christmas. I wish that , we all having a good vacation and will see next year for a new challenges and lessons. Have a prosperous new year to my students and teachers. ☺

January 3-7, 2011 A happy new year for my students!! This week is a great for me. A new challenges and experience in my teaching practicum. I really miss my students and the bonding with my cooperating teacher. I was so excited to face another year of my teaching days. So, happy to see my students again. I really want to teach them and handle the class. Maybe this month and the up coming months, is my turn in teaching my students. This week, I prepare my lesson plans and make a lecture everyday. I discussed different topics and explain it very well. If there is a difficult part, my cooperating teacher is always there to assist me. I’m happy that she was so supportive to me.

January 10-14, 2011 This week. I only make a review to them for the preparation of their graded recitation and long quiz. I give them their recitation as a written, so that it will not be difficult for them to answer. During their examination, I follow their gesture and make sure that no one is cheating. They really shock in my attitudes, and some of them really smile. Well, I will not let them to cheat!.. I really want to laugh in their reactions but I didn’t, so that they will not make funny about it. We are also busy for the competition of table skirting. I assist my cooperating teacher in one of our student who is incharge to be in competition in regional. I was so excited for them and I hope that Lagro High School will win in that contest.

January 17-21, 2011 We are so busy in this week. It is a preparation for their 3rd periodical examination. We make a review for their exams and check all the requirements that my students passed to us. We give them their periodical a day before they having their examination in other subject. I check it and records all their quizzes, recitation, and grades, so that my cooperating teacher will easily compute their grades for 3rd grading period. I also helped my co-student teachers in making cake. I learned how to bake a cake. I really happy and felt that I was the “baker queen” while Im doing all the procedures in baking. We are all happy that we have another experienced in cooking and baking.

January 24-28, 2011 This week is so busy. We have a laboratory for our students. They are all busy too in cooking and preparing specific foods that was being assign to them. It was a new experience for them and a great work that will challenge their talents in cooking a dishes. I really excited and happy for them. I also learned many things about cooking different dishes that was my students made. I already know what is the proper procedure of foods they cooked. This will served as my experienced in cooking, by observing each one of them. I hope, I can cooked too. I really happy for all of them. They work together and cooked different foods that was assigned to them. They do their best for that dish and presented to us. I appreciate their effort in their laboratory.

January 31 – February 4, 2011 We collect all the papers and compute the grades of our students. I checked their papers and make sure that all their requirements are being record. After the examination, we are having their frequency of error and score analysis. We record all the tests and give the result in our cooperating teachers. Thanks for the seminar about drug abuse, it is a reason why we have our break for an 3 hours. We are having our rest even in a short time.

February 7-11, 2011 I continue to give lecture in this week and explain each topic to my students. I always prepared my lesson plan and give my best in teaching my students. I really excited everyday I went to school. I am so busy in this week. I prepared everyday my lesson plan and study each lesson I must discuss for tomorrow.

Even though in our subject is not required for demo, our TLE head commands that we should have our final teaching demo for the complition of our requirement in Lagro High School. We are all excited and nervous in our demonstration. We are all, planning our strategies and prepare our lesson plans ahead of time. I also plan my schedule so that it will not be conflict for my students. This week is so unpredictable. I really felt nervous about what will happen for the next week. But I pray that we will be successful in our final demo. I know, we can do it. I believe in our abilities and strength.

DepEd Supports Teachers’ Adjusted Salary
Saturday, Jun 26, 2010 Education The Department of Education (DepEd) expressed its support to the immediate release of the adjusted salary of teachers that would further assure the upgrading of the quality of education in public schools. Education Secretary Mona Valisno said that a set of urgent concerns will be presented to the next administration, top among which is the salary adjustment of teachers. “I will be former secretary by July 1. But the team at DepEd will bridge with President Noynoy our concerns as he committed that education will be a priority in his administration,” said Valisno. Earlier this week, an association of public school teachers nationwide pressed DepEd for the prompt implementation of the salary adjustment of teachers under the Salary Standardization Law III (SSL3) approved by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in June last year. Valisno revealed that the Department will make representations with teachers on SSL III through DepEd’s agency transition officials including Legal Affairs Undersecretary Franklin Sunga, Undersecretary for Finance Manaros Bonansing, and Assistant Secretary Special Projects and Legislative Affairs Jonathan Malaya.

U.S. Public Schools Stop Hiring Filipino Teachers
Sunday, May 23, 2010 Education UNITED States public schools have stopped hiring Filipino teachers this year as the recession-proof profession faces the worst job market since the Great Depression. Amid state and local budget cuts, cash-poor urban districts like New York City and Los Angeles, which once hired thousands of young people every spring, have taken down the helpwanted signs. A number of Filipino teachers started their trek to the U.S. in 2004 when 268 were deployed to unified school districts rising to 488 in 2005, 521 in 2006, 971 in 2007, 865 in 2008. In 2009 only 255 were able to reach the U.S. mainland.

This year, job orders for teachers at the POEA are down as America comes to grips with slashed school budgets. Because of this, many teachers were forced to go on leave and school days were reduced so that the school district budgets can be stretched further. Most of the Filipino teachers specialized in Math, Science and Special Education. Many of them came from exclusive private schools and an exceptional few from national schools. Recruitment consultant Emmanuel Geslani reported from Los Angeles that new applicants are being turned away despite having passed the rigorous California teacher’s exam or CBEST. Furloughs or forced leaves for teachers were given as California is beset with financial troubles. At the University of Pennsylvania, most of the 90 aspiring teachers who graduated last weekend are jobless. Many had counted on offers from the Philadelphia public schools but had their interviews canceled this month after the district announced a hiring freeze.

DepEd Reiterates Banning of Campaign Signs in Schools
Sunday, May 2, 2010 Education MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Education on Thursday directed all school heads to immediately remove all campaign posters within and around school premises. Education Secretary Mona Valisno said the order was in accordance to DepEd Order No. 10, s. 2010 that outlines the “Clean Schools, Clean Elections Campaign” of the government. At the same time, Assistant Secretary Jonathan Malaya reminded school executives to put the sign: “In compliance with DepEd policy, this school PROHIBITS the posting of campaign materials in school premises. Violators will be PROSECUTED to the fullest extent of the law.” “We are reminding our division superintendents and school heads to place the signage immediately and to remove all campaign posters, otherwise they will be subject to disciplinary action where applicable,” he said. Malaya added that monitoring teams will be organized in every region which will report to the nearest DepEd Division or Regional Office of any violations of the said order. According to Valisno, the order is to ensure and maintain the neutrality and non-partisan stance of schools and the teachers in the upcoming automated elections. “We need to maintain the integrity and neutrality of our schools and teachers in the coming elections,” said Valisno.

She noted that public schools have been plastered with campaign posters of candidates in anticipation of the automated elections on May 10. “Since the school is a polling place, no campaign materials must be posted or distributed outside school premises including grounds in front and areas around it such as walls, fences and sidewalks,” the education secretary said. She also urged incumbent local officials and other concerned citizens to implement and observe the DepEd order. “We appeal to incumbent local officials, the police and concerned citizens to help us keep our schools free of campaign materials,” she added.

Valisno to Continue DepEd Programs
Tuesday, Mar 16, 2010 Education, Government New Education Secretary Mona Valisno, on her first day of work Monday, assured the nation that she has no plans of altering the smooth preparation of teachers rendering services in the May 10 national elections, and vowed to push the Department of Education (DepEd)’s plans and programs according to their set time-frame. In her acceptance speech at the turnover, she made it clear that all programs and policies that former DepEd secretary Jesli Lapus left will be implemented according to schedule. Valisno brushed aside speculations that the change in leadership could adversely affect the May 10 elections and the continuity of current programs and resolution of issues on certain Magna Carta for Teachers provisions. She stressed she has no plans of altering any preparations in the May polls, least jeopardize the smooth flow of election activities. She has also no intentions of obstructing any party list whose goal is to look after the benefit of teachers or educators. As regards certain provisions in the Magna Carta for Teachers, Valisno said she needs to be briefed on the status of all the negotiations, dialogues, and agreements that have been reached and the next steps that have to be pursued. “The President and I have always acknowledged how important teachers are, so we understand the plight of teachers, we sympathize with them, and promise to take care of their concerns,” Valisno emphasized.

Instead of spreading baseless humors, Valisno encouraged everyone to help DepEd realize its objective of helping Filipino children, especially the poor, realize their dreams though education. Education is the best social equalizer, “ito ang mabisang paraan para makaahon sa kahirapan,” she said. Being the foundation of education, basic education under the care of DepEd, therefore, plays a crucial role for our children’s education as it carries the huge task of uplifting the lives of poor children so they can be productive and responsible citizen someday, she added. She added that the Arroyo administration places great emphasis on the important role of education giving it one of the biggest shares in the national budget, representing about 29percent and singled out the priority for the basic education with DepEd having 95 percent of the total budget for education.

Aquino Says He’ll Throw Book at DepEd Execs Over ErrorFilled Textbooks
Thursday, Feb 25, 2010 Education MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino IIII said he would “throw the book” at officials of the Department of Education (DepEd) for failing to prevent error-riddled textbooks from being used in the country’s public schools. In an interview with Inquirer editors and reporters on Tuesday night, Aquino said reforming the country’s education system would be a priority if he were elected. “Why do we keep on accepting these erroneous textbooks? (Education officials) are authorized to issue contracts every five years and yet when the book is produced, there are 500 errors,” Aquino said. “This is my pet peeve.” He said that he would give DepEd officials a chance if he were elected but if error-filled textbooks still came out, those responsible would face the full force of the law. “I’ll tell them let’s say sorry to each other. There’s nonfeasance, misfeasance, malfeasance. Throw the book at them,” Aquino said. He said that he would also try to end the classroom shortage in the country so that students would no longer have to endure their classes in shifts. “You will need P20 billion at P500,000 per classroom. We had P40 billion for ZTE (the scuttled national broadband project) but we can’t have that P20 billion for schools. So, your child has three subjects per class period. He gets a textbook that is so full of errors,” Aquino said.

“The state wanted to have a headline ‘We’ve finished the classroom shortage problem’ but they did it by double, triple, and even quadruple shifting,” he added. Source: Philippine Daily Inquirer

DepEd Acknowledges Shortfall in Teachers’ Bonuses
Saturday, Jan 9, 2010 Education MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Education announced on Friday that all of its teachers received their Christmas bonuses early this month albeit partially. In a statement, DepEd said all of its 554,000 employees—most of them teachers—have received their P7,000 bonus, also referred to as the Productivity Enhancement Incentive. But it was short of the P10,000 Christmas bonus President Macapagal-Arroyo promised last year to all government employees. The P7,000 bonus per employee came from the national government while the remaining P3,000 should have been sourced from the savings of the respective agencies. To complete the bonuses, the DepEd needs P1.6 billion, of which only P550 million in savings have been released so far. But in the same statement, Education Secretary Jesli Lapus promised that, as agreed with the Department of Budget and Management, “the additional P3,000 bonus of the teachers will be paid as soon as possible.” He added: “If we have to sacrifice funds allocated for other programmed expenditures to give all our teachers the full benefits due them, we will do it.” He also assured education employees in Rodriguez, Rizal, that the funds for their bonuses stolen by robbers last month will be replaced. Armed men took away P4.9 million in cash that DepEd personnel had just withdrawn from a bank. The money was intended for the cash gifts of some 800 teachers. “The regional office is doing its best to replace the amount from available funds,” the DepEd statement said.
