Welcome to Second Grade! I hope you all had a wonderful and restful summer break.
I am Cristina Lagdameo and I will be your child’s homeroom teacher this year. This is my third year with Chinese International School Manila, and my tenth year in the profession, having taught at various schools in Manila, Philadelphia, and New York City. I hold a Master of Science in Education degree, with a major in Reading, Writing and Literacy from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. In addition to this, I am also an AB English Literature graduate from Ateneo de Manila University.
I am very excited at the thought of a promising year ahead and I look forward to working in partnership with you as we develop your child’s potential. This year will be filled with a multitude of fun activities aimed at helping your child become an independent, responsible, critical and eager learner.
Attached are a few general guidelines for the Grade 2-ML Class (PDF: Guidelines SY2017-2018).
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a note via your child’s homework notebook, or set an appointment through the school office (at 02 7980011). I look forward to meeting you soon, and working with you in ensuring your child’s success in the coming year.
