With experience comes wisdom and Teacher Lory shares her teaching philosophy with a quote on the Excellence in Education presentation.
“Teaching is about listening, questioning, responding to the needs of the students, allowing them to develop and learn in their own way,” the Filipino teacher shares.
Around the world through these difficult times, Filipinos still continue to make the country proud.
Some notable awards earned by Filipinos include another teacher Edralin Lucas who was awarded the Oklahoma Medal of Excellence in Teaching, photographers who bagged a whopping 8 Moscow International Foto Awards, and Lieutenant Melanie Martins of the U.S. Navy who was given the United States Submarine Warfare Specialist honors.
