College of Teacher Education (CTE) regrouped the faculty members in their community extension projects combining both Integrated Laboratory School (ILS) and the college department focusing on the faculty’s area of specialization.

According to College Extension Chair Dr. Tizza Marie Navarro, CTE Dean Dr. Ethel Abao is innovating something this year to have one unified project in CTE called TEAMS which stands for Teacher Education Action Mentoring Sport.

The project would group together all CTE educators with the same competencies or specialization. There are 15 areas that were classified namely: Early Childhood Education; School-based Parenting Education; EnSciMa (English, Science, Math); Special Education; English; Math; Science; Social Studies; Technology and Livelihood Education; Physical Education; Information Communication Technology; Leadership, Supervision, and Management; Values; and Research and Evaluation.

The beneficiaries of the said community extension project will be from Barangay Nangka, Balamban where an existing Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) has already been established.

CTE conducted a capacity building for teachers last Thursday, November 28, 2019 at the Teaching Arts Centrum (TAC) Auditorium in collaboration with the External Affairs and International Linkages Office to provide a common understanding about TEAMS among the extensionists from CTE thus enabling them to write a proposal in their assigned project based on their field of expertise.

“I was more than happy,” ILS Extension Chair Mrs. Rosita Lacea said as she shared her views with the regrouping.

“This would mean a strong force coming from the faculty – in the College and ILS. I can only see improved lives of our engaged partners where   the expertise is shared with a heart,” she said.

“This new undertaking is very laudable knowing that in unity there is strength,” she added.

Other existing community extension projects have culminated with the emergence of TEAMS. An impact study would also have to be conducted by teachers for monitoring purposes of the previous projects.

Navarro said that an in-house review of the proposals will be conducted in January next year. External Affairs and International Linkages Office Director Naila Beltran would still have to submit the recommended projects to the President’s office for funding. (JDF)
