Halo Halo World features Mano Amiga Academy’s alphabet book! 

Mano Amiga Academy students came up with an alphabet book suited for Filipino students. They drew and colored pictures which we can say proudly Pinoy. Here’s an example taken from the digital book.


If you hover over the picture you will see the syllabication of the word and its English translation. When you click the picture, you will hear the recorded pronunciation of the word. This is perfect for those who are studying the Filipino language and who are starting to read.

The website was born a month ago and I can see the desire of the owner to feature Filipino authors and promote Patriotism. What I like about this website is that it is available for everyone to consume! It is for Free! Also, it comes handy. It can be viewed using your mobile phone, iPad or any tablet.

The website has featured some good to read books such as: What’s that?!, Mga Pintong Pangarap, and the Five Chickens who dreamed of flying. I can’t wait till this website becomes a sought after website for those who are into reading and starters.

Give it a try! Check out Mano Amiga Academy Alphabet book!

Be forgetful

As a teacher, it is essential that we provide quality education. Of course mastery of the subject matter is very important. 

There would be instances in our classes wherein our students seemed to be trying to test our patience. They would be chatting a lot, uninterested, not engaged, and even answer back. In situations like this, we need to be forgetful. Forget about what had happened today, forgive your student and give him another chance tomorrow.

Your success is my success!!!

My tutee aimed for silver award last March. It was very critical as she was really challenged with Math and a topic in Social Studies. Tutorial days last March was horrible. We would spend 2-3 hours studying and answering drills for Math and Social Studies. Good thing it was a swift for other subjects. I believed that she would hit her target. I knew. I just knew.

Until, my tutee (E) called up last Monday, April 15 to let me know that she got a silver award! 

Thank God for the wisdom you gave her and the guidance you gave me preparing her for her tests!

Also, this afternoon I had another session with my tutee, cousin, from Japan. She’s been improving in English. She can now read CVC words with ease and read simple sentences. Her vocabulary has greatly improved and her confidence has increased.

Whew! I owe to God for giving her guidance and wisdom, to Tita Neneth who is also teaching Allya during our sessions and of course Allya who’s been so determined to learn the English Language.

As a teacher, your tutor, your success is my success!!!

Why do I teach?

I stopped. I reflected. So why do I teach. Before I started college, it was funny that I really thought that it was the easiest job especially I would just be dealing with the small kids.  Unfortunately It was NOT as easy I thought it would be but the most challenging job ever!

So after years of teaching, I realized why I teach. So let me list them down:

1. I teach to simplify tough subject matter.

2. I teach to make students smile.

3. I teach to develop confidence in my students.

4. I teach to nurture the talent they have.

5. I teach to earn a living.

There are many more reasons why I teach but in the journey of teaching you’ll realize that the students are awesome teachers as well! I never worked and never will! 🙂

Austism Awareness

I believe the more we know, the more we understand. So I got some info from Autismspeak.org

  • Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys

  • Autism prevalence figures are growing

  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.

  • Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average

  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases

  • Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism

  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism

Today is Autism Awareness day.

I want to Spread the word and get the world to go blue!  Be sure to share with your friends and family !
