“ATE NENENG ..............THE GOOD SAMARITAN”

ni:  Jolina L. Salazar

            “May mabuting layunin ang Panginoon sa bawat pangyayari sa ating buhay.” Ilan lamang ito sa mga katagang nasambit ni Ate Neneng, Nenita Baluyot sa tunay na pangalan nung aking siyang nakapanayam para sa sulating ito. Kung kaya’t tumimo sa aking isipan ang mga tanong na sa palagay ko’y siya lang ang makasasagot.

             Ipinanganak si Ate Neneng noong February 16, 1959 at 54 na taong gulang na sa kasalukuyan. May bahay ni Ginoong Danilo Baluyot o mas kilala bilang kuya Boyet at nabiyayaan ng 4 na supling. Masayang naninirahan sa Tagles Ville, Balanga City. Maliban sa kalungkutan at pangungulilang naranasan ng mawala sa kanilang piling at isama na ng lumikha sa piling ng mga angel sa langit ang kanilang isang anak na sa edad nitong 12. Siguro nga’y  pinagtagpo ng tadhana ang mag-asawa dahil sa parehas silang nakatapos ng pag-iihinyero bilang Chemical Engineer sa Mapua Institute of Technology at kanyang asawa naman na Mechanical Engineer ang natapos.

              Naging daan ang pagkawala ng anak upang mag-aral siya muli sa Institute of Cathechetical Dioses of Manila. Marahil sa kalungkutan at pangungulila na sa buong akala niya ay isa itong magiging maliwanag na daan upang hilumin ang sugat ng kahapong nais paglabanan.

              Ngunit isa pala itong malaking karangalan at mabuting daan sa katiwasayan ng kanyang puso at isip sapagkat nabuo sa kanyang katauhan ang mahalagang misyon na kaloob ng Maykapal.

              Sa kasalukayan ay isa na siyang Head Cathechist na malugod at buong pusong ginagampanan ang katungkulang  itinalaga sa kanya bilang Pang-ulong katekista.”Masaya ako at puno ng pasasalamat at dedikasyon bilang isa sa mga misyonarya ng ating Panginoon sapagkat sa pamamagitan ko ay naibabahagi ko ang mabuting salita ng Diyos sa mga bata at magulang na tunay na yaman at kabutihan kong maituturing”-------Ate  Neneng.

         Sa kabila ng hectic schedule sa pagtuturo sa mga bata ay nakuha pa niyang tumulong sa kapwa katulad na lamang na nangyari kay Gng. Nory M.Santos guro sa ika-anim na baitang habang nagtuturo ng salita ng Diyos si Ate Neneng ang tumulong na magdala sa hospital kay Mam Santos dahil nanikip ang dibdib at nahirapang huminga. Hindi siya nagdalawang isip na tulungan ito at dalhin sa pinakamalapit na hospital. Hindi niya iniwan si Gng. Nory M. Santos sa hospital hanggat wala ang pamilya nito. Kaya maituturing na isa siyang Good Samaritan.

K + 12... Solusyon nga ba para maitaas ang antas ng EDUKASYON?

posted May 14, 2013, 7:03 PM by Pilinda Rose Dominguez

Ni Marilou T. Valiente

 

         Ang K+12 o ang Enhanced 12 year Basic Education program ng Department of Education ang pinakabagong programa ni at nilagdaan ng Pangulong Benigno  Aquino Jr. sa edukasyon. Bitbit niya ito sa kanyang 10 point agenda noong panahon ng kampanya sa pagkapangulo. Sa K+12, ang lahat ngkabataan na edad 5 ay dapat pumasok sa kindergarten(pre-school) at magdadagdag din ng dalawang taon naSenior High School. Lalagyan ang curriculum ng mgasubject na magbibigay ng vocation at technical skillstraining sa mga estudyante. Halimbawa ng mga ito ayang welding at machine operation.Ipapatupad ang K+12 sa isang ladderized o antas-antasna paraan.. Ang lahat ng grade 6 ngayong taon pababa ay papasok na sa dagdag taon ng K+12, ang dalawang taong Senior High School pagkatapos ng nakasanayang apat na tao. 

           Ang programang ito ay naglalayong mapataas ang kalidad ng edukasyon ng bansa. Ang Pilipinas na lang kasi ang bukod tanging bansa sa Asya ang may pinakamababang bilang ng taon sa Basic Education. Suportado ang programang ito ng ilang sektor tulad ng mga nasa negosyo. Sa ganitong paraan ay maari ng makapagtrabaho ang mga Pilipino kahit high school lang ang tinapos.

           Ang pangunahing adhikain ng K12 Program ng gobyerno ay ang pag aangat ng kalidad ng edukasyon sa Pilipinas. Ngunit ito nga ba ay praktikal? Ito nga ba ang tunay na solusyon sa naghihikahos na estado ng edukasyon sa ating bansa? Kung dadagdagan ng taon ang pag-aaral ay malulunasan ba nito ang kahirapan? Mababawasan kaya nito ang mga drop out? Ito na nga ba ang kasagutan upang maitaas ang antas n gating edukasyon? Katanungan ng marami lalung-lalo ng mga magulang at mga mag-aaral. Ang pangamba ng marami, di kaya ito’y magdulot ng karagdagang paghihirap sa mamamayan lalo na sa mahihirap.

Getting High Grades in English

posted May 7, 2013, 6:48 AM by Pilinda Rose Dominguez

by: Mrs. Marian C. Robles

The English language is used everywhere. When we meet people from other countries, or in abroad, we need English for communication. English is used in films, literature, songs, sports, business, products, trades and entertainment, and through these channels many English words and expressions have found their way into our own language. When we want information on something of private or professional interest, we often search for it in English. Moreover, English is increasingly used in education and working life, or in abroad.
To succeed in a world where English is used for international interpersonal communication, it is necessary to master the English language. Thus we need to develop our vocabulary and our skills in using the systems of the English language; its phonology, grammar and text structuring. We need these skills to listen, speak, read and write, and to adapt our language to an ever increasing number of topics, areas of interest and communication situations. We must be able to distinguish between spoken and written styles and informal and formal styles. Moreover, when using the language in communication, we must also be able to take cultural norms and conventions into consideration.

When we are aware of the strategies we use to learn a foreign language, and the strategies that help us to understand and be understood, the acquisition of knowledge and skills will be easier and more meaningful. It is also important for each of us to establish our own goals for learning, to determine how these can be satisfied and to assess the way we use the language. Learning English may also give us better insight into our native language and other languages we know, thus becoming an important element in our personal development and making a significant contribution to our communicative abilities.

In addition to learning the English language, this subject will also contribute insight into the way we live and how others live, and their views on life, values and cultures. Learning about the English-speaking world will provide a good basis for understanding the world around us and how English developed into a world language. Literature in English, from nursery rhymes to Shakespeare' sonnets, may instil a lifelong joy of reading and provide a deeper understanding of oneself and others. English texts, films, music and other art forms may also inspire the pupil's own artistic expression and creativity in many genres and media.

Thus English as a school subject is both a tool and a way of gaining knowledge and personal insight. It will enable the pupils to communicate with others on personal, social, literary and interdisciplinary topics. It will give insight into how individuals think and live in the English-speaking world. Communicative skills and cultural insight can promote greater interaction, understanding and respect between people with different cultural backgrounds. In this way linguistic and cultural competence contributes to the all-round personal development and fosters democratic commitment and a better understanding of responsible citizenship.

Ushering in new learning and watching students’ eye gleam with that familiar spark of understanding is a teacher’s most treasured daily  wage. Teaching since time immemorial has been very laborious and taxing because of the numerous responsibilities it entails from preparation of teaching materials, execution of teaching-learning process to conferencing the parents about their child’s progress. If you are not ready for all these activities then, this profession is not for you. Yet, if you feel confident and happy in accomplishing all these tasks then, you just have to find ways on how to overcome all these stress in teaching.

SYNERGY IN AN ORGANIZATION

posted May 5, 2013, 10:56 PM by Pilinda Rose Dominguez

by: Mrs. Marilou T. Valiente

The word “synergy” comes from synchronized energy. When applied to an organization, it simply means that the energy drive of each member to reach a common goal of success of the  organization is synchronized and of the same level.

          Every member work hand in hand to assure success. To attain such success, the FIVE STEPS OF ORGANIZING PROCESS are to be followed:

 

1. Identify the tasks. Describe what people must do to reach objectives. Focus on this and you will be able to pick the right tasks and avoid doing the wrong things; accepting impossible tasks because of misdirected “can do” attitude; accepting inappropriate tasks because of inabilty to say “No”!

 

2. Establish structure. Use formal organizational documents to align tasks with functions, resources, and people. Examples : organizational charts, Manpower authorization documents, and position descriptions.

 

3. Fit people to tasks. Assign the right person to the right task. No square pegs in round holes. Consider position description but be flexible. If they don’t fit the tasks, rewrite.

 

4. Establish relationships. People are the key to success in organizing. Use three tools to ensure people cooperate: Authority – empower people to do their job. Responsibility – ensure they know what’s expected of them. Accountability – hold them answerable for results.

 

5. Allocate resources. Direct most resources to major efforts. Apply minimum resources to secondary efforts. Give people enough resources - this builds trust when you deliver.

Important Issues in Public School Financing

posted May 1, 2013, 11:04 PM by Pilinda Rose Dominguez

by: Mrs. Eloisa M. Bacani

Education finance has long been a topic of debate .With education consuming a large share of public expenditures in many countries,the public is increasingly interested in how education resources are used.

In addition,the economic down turn is prompting many more questions as governments reconsider spending priorities in the context of tightening budgets.

Where the money comes from?

The major source of funding  for public schools  is the local property taxes.It is set by the local school board ,other officials or directly by citizens.This local control led to dramatic differences in school funding ,usually depending on the relative property wealth of the surrounding community.

There is  budget allocation for Education  on Financing like: the Department of Education takes the biggest share with Php 238.8 billion representing a sharp budgetary increase of 15.2 percent from its 2011 budget of Php 207.3 billion.

There is proposed budget for basic education  includes for : basic educational facilities,hiring more teachers to address current teacher  shortage ,allocation out of the Miscellaneous Personnel Benefit Fund (MPBF),allocation for the procurement of textbooks and teachers  manuals,allocation to support the expansion of Government Assistance  to Students and Teachers in Private Education (GASTPE) to benefit one million grantees ,allocation for the Universal Kindergarten program.

The Federal Government,State Governments,School districts and Schools all have some decision – making role about in expenditures.

Help Your Child Build Writing Skills

posted Apr 17, 2013, 10:59 AM by Pilinda Rose Dominguez

Parents can help by encouraging their children to embrace the concept of revision. Through reviewing and revising, kids will soon see their writing improve.
Sandwiched somewhere between reading for meaning and tackling math problems, kids are expected to write. A lot. They’re writing stories, persuasive papers, letters, PowerPoint presentations, and content for their own websites.

And yet, for all the writing kids do, many struggle to come up with words to put on paper. Students in upper elementary, middle, and high school may be especially reluctant because they are self-conscious about their writing or think they have nothing of value to say.

Let your child know that every occupation requires writing. Doctors write. Artists write. Athletes write. Look for examples everywhere you go of people writing as part of their professional lives. Encourage adults in your child’s life to point out examples of writing and revision.

Encourage your child to write letters. Not the electronic kind but old-school, handwritten letters. Whether she writes to a grandparent or a pen pal in another state or country, she’ll gain valuable practice expressing herself through words. 

Show your child how writing can help him work through problems and find a solution. If something is bothering him, have him write about it. Or if your family is having a problem, such as feeling overscheduled or not being able to stick to a budget, have your child write down potential solutions.

Help your child tackle math problems with writing. Sometimes writing a paragraph about how you plan to solve an equation can help. Really! 

Read your child’s writing and comment on it. Take time to praise your child’s writing, even if it’s a routine assignment that comes home in the backpack. 

It’s common for parents to defer to teachers on writing if they don’t feel confident themselves. But anyone can be a writing coach, just by encouraging a child to keep at it. The more we can be positive, showing an interest and offering to read a child’s writing, the more comfortable the child will be. Parents can help their child edit and think through ideas. It’s all about being a motivator.

Tips for Productive Parent-Teacher Conferences

If a student often acts bored, for example, a teacher may assume he isn’t interested in learning.

Here are some behaviors children can learn that will lead to success:

1. Sit close to the front or near the center of the class (if the teacher has not already assigned seats).

2. Be interested in what the teacher is saying. Sit up straight and look the teacher in the eye.

3. Be on time for class—or early. Bring pencils, paper, and any other needed supplies with you.

4. Raise your hand and volunteer answers frequently.

5. Ask questions when you don’t understand.

6. Take notes. Be organized. Write down all directions and assignments.

7. Be especially quiet and well-behaved when visitors are in the room.

8. Offer to help the teacher when he or she needs help.

9. Don’t argue with the teacher in front of others. If there is something you don’t think is fair, talk to the teacher in private.

10. When the teacher has gone out of the way to help you, be sure to say thanks.

Although these 10 tips may not solve all the problems children face in school, they can help lead to school success.
