Wishing everyone a great day!
Let me introduce myself to all of you. My name is Miss Sherilyn E. Estacio. I am currently a PPCD Early Childhood Teacher this school year 2016-2017.
Before I even finish my degree, I started teaching already in a Reading Literacy Clinic where I taught Kindergarten for a year until I graduated college.
I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education with Special Education as my area of concentration at the University of the Philippines.
After graduation, I started teaching in a Foundation School for Children with Special Needs at Philippine Children's Medical Center thus giving me a rich experience of early childhood education teaching, balanced with the medical aspects of child development and disabilities.
I have taught in this school in the Philippines for 5 years before I migrated here in Texas.
When I came here to work, I obtained certification both in English a Second Language and Special Education.I also hold a cerification as a Generalist from EC-6.I have been teaching in the district for 13 years now and I am continuing to love it and still am learning many innovative things to inspire my students to learn.
For me, teaching is not only a profession but a calling... I started college as a Dentistry student and almost became a full fledged dentist until the call to teach and inspire students with special needs came knocking at my heart...And I answered the call, left Dentistry school and started my journey as a teacher...and I never looked back with a sad heart up to now.
I love to teach and be an instrument to help all my students achieve their maximum potential even though at times it seems too far fetched. I believe that the most powerful weapon to trample defeat is to face it with a big dream and to never quit.
With a powerhouse of great support from this school, this year will be nothing but another superb year of milestones after milestones for our Castro students!
