Wishing everyone a great day!
Let me introduce myself to all of you. My name is Miss Sherilyn E. Estacio. I am currently assigned to our SSC Special Education Unit this school year 2017-2018.
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 Bachelor's Degree 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 for children with special needs at Philippine Children's Medical Center, giving me a rich experience in teaching students with varied disabilities and different age-levels. Since it is a foundation in a medical hospital, my experience was also 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 certifications in both English a Second Language and Special Education.I also hold a certification as a Generalist teacher for EC-6.I have been teaching in the district for 14 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 in the program 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 never looked back with regret 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! Together we can!
