Presenting the New CDC Coordinator


by Mrs. Ane Ortilla

MAC, in the Ateneo Grade School, MARICOR, at the Immaculate Conception Academy, SOCKY, as a student
in UST, and BABY, to her family. Whatever name she is called – she remains MARIA SOCORRO AZARIAS
IGNACIO, the new coordinator of the Child Development Center.

Mac completed her elementary education at the Immaculate Conception Parochial School. She took her
secondary education and early college years at the University of Santo Tomas. She then transferred to the
College of the Holy Spirit to finish her undergraduate studies with a degree in Psychology.

Right after college, she worked as a psychometrician in the Philippine Psychological Corporation. This
explains her vast exposure to psychological testing. However, she realized that the corporate world was not
for her so she tried to find her niche in the academe. She transferred to Immaculate Conception Academy
in Greenhills where she worked as a Guidance Counselor. It was while she was in ICA that she started
her graduate studies in the Ateneo. She took the course Master of Arts in
Education major in Guidance and Counseling. In 1992, Mac transferred to
the Ateneo Grade School where she was first assigned as a Grade Three
counselor. In the 16 years that followed, she has moved from one grade
level to another.

Many people do not know that Mac is an only child. Psychologist Alfred
Adler once said, “the only child tends to be spoiled and pampered.” Well, all
I can say is that Mac is one living exception to this theory. She is certainly
not spoiled and has very little need for nurturing. She is DEFINITELY
hardworking and dedicated.

Finally, Mac is rigid and disciplined, especially when it comes to her health.
Even if it means going home late, Mac always finds time for her daily walking
along Masterson Road and works out regularly at the Moro Lorenzo Gym.

It has been a good year with Mac at the helm of everything we do in the
Child Development Center. With the school year coming to an end, we
would like to take this opportunity to thank her and wish her good luck
and best wishes as she leads us in the years to come.

☺ Don’t rely on others for approval or validation.
You know when you’ve done the right thing, and
your students know when you’ve helped them.
That should be enough.
☺ To teach, stay teachable!
☺ Do something different this summer.
Who knows? It might just make you a better teacher.
☺ Put off procrastinating. You can’t teach students anything
tomorrow. You can only teach them today.
☺ Keep up with the latest technologies. Learn from the kids if you have to.
☺ Admit it when you don’t know something, and never hesitate to ask for help when you need it. Students are more
comfortable learning from real- life human beings than from icons.
☺ Be physically rested and mentally rested for each day. Students always have lots of energy. You should too.
☺ Be aware of your body language. Sometimes your posture, gestures, or facial expressions speak louder than your words.
☺ Remember what it was like to be a student. This perspective will change the way you teach.
☺ All teachers make mistakes. Good teachers admit them. Be one of the good ones.
☺ Think about the teachers who inspired you the most. You can’t be them, but you can find ways to be more like them.
☺ Remember that each class of students is like a farmer’s annual crop. Some are better than others, but they all take the
same loving care in order to get the highest yield.
☺ Spend time with people who aren’t teachers. If
teachers talk to other teachers, they begin to think
that school and schooling are all that matter. They
aren’t. Kids know that. You should too.
☺When you fall behind and more work is piling up,
refuse to panic. Just do the next thing and then the
next. Keep it up. Things will get better.
☺Look your best. You’ll feel better and teach better.--->
☺Thank God you’re a teacher. It doesn’t get any
better than that. ☺ ☺☺☺ ☺ ☺ ☺☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺
