Portia M. Mallorca, an SDS Worthy for Emulation

By Gil Camporazo

My fellow school heads in the Division of La Carlota City and I have done a great deed today by planting a tree on the ground of the new Division Office building at the Locsin-Ledesma Avenue, La Carlota City.

Mam Portia and me shaking hands
This is not only a great contribution to human existence, but to give a tribute to Ma’m Portia M. Mallorca, our schools division superintendent who is celebrating her 49th birthday, August 17.

Since she took the helm of supervision and administration of the Division of La Carlota in 2012, we're seeing each other every now and then, in school visitation, school-related conferences, and MANCOM (Management Committee) meeting.

As she's celebrating her birthday today, I find it appropriate for to write a humble tribute for her on how Ma’m Portia is worthy of emulation as far as I knew her personally.

I have known her a bit we’re studying in one humble college, the La Carlota City College. Our names were among those regularly listed in the list of academic honors per semester. I completed my BEED course ahead of her for I am a senior student than her. Ironically, she’s employed at the DepEd ahead of me, for it took me 15 years to be in teaching profession.

When she assumed the office-in charge of the Office of the Assistant Schools Division Superintendent in April 19, 2012 leaving her the Division of Bago City as Assistant Schools Division Superintendent, then we unexpected reunited. After passing the CESWE and completed the requirement for a full-fledged superintendent, she’s now our present Schools Division Superintendent.

In a matter of two years as Cubay Elementary School head, I’ve been together with her as our school administrator. I may say Ma’am Portia M. Mallorca is an ideal school administrator by example through thick and thin. I’ve been chronicling her activities every time we’ve our meeting, conference and any school-related activities, and even published them in my column in a local newspaper or in my blog.

Through her example, SBM is a success in the division of La Carlota for she’s an achiever herself. SBM is fully implemented in the Division since she’s the Division school administrator.

On K to 12 Curriculum

She’s confident that the 62 grade teachers who attended the 5-day seminar-workshop on K to 12 curriculum could effectively implement it. She encouraged them that they could do it; they’re doing it for the future of the children, of their city, of their country. “Since we’re the only chosen few, let’s do it!” she urged them.

She expected, “Every day in every classroom, there is a teacher who will teach a child to be a full human being; that is, to develop the child with a heart.”

On Special Education (SPED)

In her stint as acting schools division superintendent, the Special Education Integrated School had its first 10 graduates, a momentous event in the history of La Carlota Special Education. An event, she described as “new opportunities and potentials for the challenges in life.”

School Administrator Sympathizer

“In everything there is a season and in everything we do there is a reason,” said Mallorca to open up a DepEd Night in 2012 as once-in-a-life-time show in the annals of Division of La Carlota City. “We’re indeed very, very happy, not only of your shimmering and glittering costumes you have, but from within,” Mallorca said.

Implementor of JEL

In a 4-day series of training/workshop of school principals, Ma’am Mallorca challenged teacher-participants to improve the output of their pupil’s academic performance. Thus, she said job-embedded learning should be implemented through SPDIOS, that is, school project, demand, interest options, and solutions.

Good Motivator – Good Example

In her unannounced visit to my school, she observed two of my grade one teachers. Momentarily, she took over the class and demonstrated the various techniques and methods of teaching reading to grade one pupils like vowel sound, phonetic combination, and correct accent and syllabic blend with appropriate picture to use.

Advocate of Teachers’ Organization and Responsibilities

After inducting the teachers’ League Officers in 2012, she regarded them as tapestry of leaders for
they’re “good weaver” in achieving the common goal for their organization. As a “good weaver”, she said, must be working together harmoniously and collaboratively for one mission, one vision; though they’ve different strategy.  “Be the best of a person. There’s time that you can’t be awarded, but you can be a good leader,” she told them.

Service-Teaching Oriented

She valued service more especially in serving the children. She told the teachers that they’re serving the children entrusted to them. She pointed out that when they serve the children and thinking otherwise, their service is not total.

She disclosed that she gets sick when she’s unable to visit the school. She believed that everyday there’s always a teacher in the classroom, who teaches a child.

Good Governance Advocate

She’s been in La Carlota City Division as school administrator for more than two years now. She noticed that the city has improved a lot because of good practices of the mayor. She praised the good example by La Carlota Mayor Juliet Marie Ferrer. She told the school principals present in the Independence Day Celebration in the public plaza two years ago in which she’s the guest speaker that what they do for today determines the future. “Go to the straight path,” she urged them.

An Obedient School Administrator

In her first MANCOM with us in May 2012, she strongly urged us to follow Secretary Br. Armin Luistro’s message that as a DepEd family we should “speak ONE and the SAME LANGUAGE. Use ONE SET OF DATA, and follow ONE SET OF RULES.”

That’s all for now. Happy birthday, Ma’m Portia and God bless!
