The Change has Come!

If you haven’t been aware of it yet, the system of education in the Philippines has been changed to K-12.

I am not currently a teacher but my husband is, so obviously he has to make changes in his teaching. In the previous years, he was teaching 2nd year high school Biology but with the change he is now teaching Grade 8 Science beginning last June!ย What does this mean to my husband and to other 2nd year high school Science teachers?

As a teacher of Grade 8 Science, my husband now teaches Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science and Biology in one school year! Whew! What a challenge! My husband, like his fellow teachers, had to undergo training to be able to make the teaching adjustments. Thank God that he has been able to make the needed changes in his teaching and yes, with all the additional effort on his part ๐Ÿ™‚

Needing a Laptop

It was not until 2008 when I got my own laptop. By that time, I really needed one for my job as my work then also included traveling. It was bought outside the country (Australia) and yes, I was glad to have it ๐Ÿ™‚ ย And I would have to say that back then I could not afford buying this laptop model by myself. Thank God for His unexpected provision, finally it was bought at just the right time ๐Ÿ™‚

By last year, there was already some “wear and tear” on my ASUS A8e laptop. And so I considered getting a new one. And surprise, surprise! My latest laptop is a gift! But that newer laptop also deserves another post ๐Ÿ™‚ Below is a photo of my old ASUS laptop ๐Ÿ™‚
