I have just started a new job as a special education consultant at a regular preschool in Mandaluyong. I had meant only to visit the school and to use it as another entry for my blog, but I somehow ended up with a part-time job as well :).
It is a progressive school and the aim of the founders was to establish a school in the tradition and standards of the Bank street approach to education. They have a good number of classes from Toddler, Nursery and Kinder (ranging from 1 y/o to 5.5 y/o). It is an inclusive setting and they have children with special needs in the different classrooms.
This is definitely a new setting and a new role for me, which is one of the reasons why I took the job. I am eager to learn new things and am open to new experiences :). I can't wait for the kids to come back to school in June and I am looking forward to meeting and working with their families, as well as the very supportive and enthusiastic staff at Explorations.
