Kamusta? This is my first time ever to create a blog of my own. And gladly, it is all about my experiences being a teacher in my Literacy Training Service Program. For these days, I will post blogs on some opinions and responses to our activities in preparation of our teaching in the next semester.
I'm really excited and nervous in publishing articles here in this blog. Nangangamba akong baka may pumuna o magkomento ng mga salitang hindi maganda sa blog na ito ngunit alam kong bahagi ito ng challenge sa akin dahil alam kong pagdating sa pagtuturo, kailangan mong harapin ang mga puna sa iyong mga pananaw upang mabago mo ang iyong paraan ng pagtuturo tungo sa aking kabutihan at sa aking mga mag-aaral.
By the way, I already had an experience of teaching when I was in high school, it was a regular Friday session wherein we teach Catechism to Grade 2 and Grade 4 students. It was really fun and very touching to see that these children are learning a lot from you. They knew different things about being a Christian and cleared some misconceptions that may hinder their understanding of faith.
I hope that my future students will also learn a lot from me. It's not Catechism anymore, it's all about learning how to read, write, speak, listen and comprehend. I will now face a higher step of teaching.
I chose to speak in two languages, English and Filipino. I think it would be easy for me in that way to express what I know and what I really want to say. Ganoon din naman sa pagtuturo, kahit tinuturuan natin ang mga bata sa Filipino, kakailanganin din nilang matuto ng wikang Ingles bilang pagsabay sa ating modernong panahon.
Should you have any suggestions about what methods / approach in teaching children? Mayroon ka bang alam na mga paraan para mahikayat silang pumasok sa paaralan at makinig sa aming mga ate at kuya na magtuturo sa kanila? Comment here or on my future blogs. Feel free to comment, I would be very happy and appreciate all of these, and will do my best...
