What Do We Do in Summer?

Summertime is the best opportune time for every member of my family to be together, to have  bonding time, to strengthen our relationship, patching family problems, among others.

Actually, this is what comes to our mind every summer. Summertime is washing time. Summertime is cooking. Summertime is swimming. Summertime is playing time. Summertime is praying together. Summertime is spending Church activity together. Summertime is to watch wholesome movies. Summertime is writing and reading. Summertime is to enjoy an ample rest and a sound sleep at siesta and at night. But what matters most is summertime is a family time.

Summer Vacation

Summer vacation starts right after the closing exercises or commencement exercises of elementary and high school respectively.

In my family, we have four grandchildren who go to elementary school, one programming teacher, and one instructional manager; and I am a school head of Cubay Elementary School, Division of La Carlota City.

ALS IM Geeree Camporazo Gets Another Feather to Her Cap

Two years ago, ALS instructional manager, Ms. Geeree D. Camporazo got only 6 passers in the Accreditation and Equivalency Test (A&E) of Alternative Learning System (ALS) of the Department of Education. Then last year, she got 9 passers.

ALS IM Geeree Camporazo
Now this year, she was very proud of having 13 passers out of 20 of her ALS learners who took the A & E Test conducted on October 13, 2013. Overall she got 65% passers so far. That is good enough. One of the elementary passers she had was our granddaughter, Princess Camporazo.

Geeree, our youngest daughter, is in her third year of teaching as IM. She is conducting her classes every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday at the hall of Barangay 3, La Carlota City. She  teaches her learners of the learning competencies which consist of the five learning strands of the ALS Curriculum.

Teaching Leads Me To Where I Am Now

Twenty-nine years ago today, I was overjoyed while I received my certificate of the degree of Bachelor in Elementary Education. Former La Carlota City Mayor Juancho Aguirre handed me that certificate in a red case.

Gil Camporazo
I would be much happy if my late parents were also present at that time. The degree that was conferred upon me by the board of trustees of La Carlota City was the greatest expectation of my parents. I earned this through my diligence, through my industry, through my determination to equip myself of this honor in which my wife and my two kids are so proud too for I was already married while I was studying in college.

It took me a lot of perseverance, a lot of sacrifices. But above all, I know it is the Lord's will to provide for such blessings to fulfill my dream, my vocation as a teacher. My passion to teach is evident while I was a kid. I used to play a classroom teacher. I used to gather my neighbors, my relatives and used our empty wall as blackboard.I taught them writing, reading, and arithmetic The 4Rs in teaching methodology. I enjoyed and they enjoyed too. I used to cry, feel frustrated and even disgusted when they won't play with me.
