About Me

My photo
I am a special educator who has recently relocated to Manila. One of my goals for this year is learn more about early childhood education and special education in the Philippines. I have been visiting schools and therapy centers (among others) and providing info here about them. I do not aim to endorse these different centers/schools, but my intention is to provide information in case some people are interested in learning more about them.

Hong Kong International School (HKIS)

Got to visit HKIS where my friend works as a learning specialist.  HKIS is a regular school who have kids who need some extra help to do well, be it academically, in speech and language or socially, and that is where the learning specialist comes in.

Thanks Mayen Sarenas for taking me around!
