Last January 19, 2013, I had my first ever storytelling seminar as an educator. Our resource speaker was a very talented and witty person and her name is Ms. Sheila Wee. The seminar was held at La Breza Hotel, Quezon City from 9:00am-5:00pm and was organized by MICEP. When I first saw the poster about this seminar-workshop, I got very interested and thought that I would really benefit a lot from this seminar. It is about the art of storytelling – how you can use storytelling as a medium of teaching values, culture, heritage, as well as tradition and many more. Through stories, children of every age as well as adults can gain experience of the world and gain models on how to deal or solve problems that they will encounter in real life situations.

Upon the request of one of our avid Special Education Philippines’ readers, Teacher Regina and Teacher Rows, I am posting today this seminar for teachers. If you find yourself this summer having an extra time for your career growth and development then why not look for seminars that will empower you as an educator especially in the coming school year. Examples of that are the 1st Brain Fitness Conference happening this month also.
According to Mique International Conference and Event Planners (MICEP), the educational seminars they organized this April is in response to the unique needs of the K12 classroom. Thus, their 2013 summer language arts workshops focuses on the needs of teachers in early grades and the special needs classroom.
Conducted by Ms. Sheila Wee, the seminar workshops are designed to give teachers practical and ready to use strategies in harnessing the language skills in young children and children with special needs.
Who is Ms. Sheila Wee?
Alright, this post has been in my important folder for quite some time now. There are three articles in that folder and I promised myself that I will not write any other posts until I finish these three. I think this post is timely especially this month when everybody is busy preparing to take the test or is actually taking the test already.
First, let’s give credit to Ms. Maria Teresita P. Filipinia M.A. Ed of Advocata (a.ka. Teacher Tere) for covering this topic during one of Advocata’s seminar.
What is the difference among modification, accommodation and assistance?
The story I am going to share below must be going around the Internet for quite some time but it still pinches my heart. Although many say that the story is ficitional, still if you are looking for something inspiring I do hope you stumble on this post because it is one of the most touching stories ever made about a teacher and her student.
Enjoy reading. Thanks to Teacher Robi Marapao of Pinoy Teachers for sharing this to the group.

Ako ay gumawa ng isang Aralin Plano sa Filipino para sa unang level ng edukasyong sekundari. Ito ay naging isang pagsubok sa akin dahil maraming salitang Ingles na walang diretsong katugma na salita sa Filipino. Ngunit bilang Filipino, para sa aking ito ay aking kahihiyan kung hindi ko maipapakita ang aking galing sa aking sariling wika.
Sa aking paggawa ng isalng aralin plano, napansin ko na ang mga materyales o halimbawa sa makikita online ay karampot lamang. Kung kaya’t naisip kong ibahagi ang aking nagawang aralin plano, hindi bilang eksperto, kundi bilang kontribusyon sa mga materyales online at para sa mga nagsasaliksik tulad ko. Kung gusto nyo rin suriin at magkomento sa aking aralin plano, ito ay aking tatanggapin basta ang layunin natin ay para mapabuti ang paggawa ng mga aralin plano sa Filipino.
Hindi na ako magpapatumpik-tumpik, ito ang aking aralin plano para sa Filipino
Last week we featured rising Filipino singer, Miguel Aguila and shared with you Special Education Philippines readers his accomplishments as an artist. However, the list of accolades for this young man proved to be quite lengthy even at such a young age. Today, I am posting the next half of this young man’s accomplishments shared to me by his dad. It also details what we can expect from Miguel Aguila and what he intends to do for his blossoming career.
Who is Miguel Aguila now?
I should have written this blog months ago but I didn’t. I have no excuse. Life happened and I decided to delay it. So what made me write it? Well, a blogger made a random comment and said that we are months away from Christmas. I found that funny and agreeable to me. How time flies!
That blogger’s comment reminded me of last Christmas 2012. Every Christmas there is one party that makes me sooooooooooo excited. Not because of the gifts (when actually there are overflowing gifts in this party, in fact, hundreds of them). Not because of the prizes (but actually there’s lots of loot to be given away– in every game). Not because of the holiday presentations (but there are so many song and dance numbers one after another). I am excited of this Christmas party because in this party I get to see not one, not tens not a hundred but hundreds of children. Oh yes, all 600 hundred smiling, happy and blessed children.
So what makes me giddy about Christmas?
An invitation was sent today to Special Education Philippines which proves to be intriguing as well as brain-stimulating. As part of their awareness campaign, BrainFit Studio is organizing a FREE Conference about Brain Fitness and Learning among children particularly for students with exceptionalities.
