Welcome to school year 2019-2020!
The school year has a lot in store for us. Exciting times ahead! I look forward to getting to know you and your children. I believe our collaboration will result to an engaging and fruitful learning experience that will benefit the children in Kindergarten YM.
I am Yna Maria U. Mendez and I will be your partner in helping your children learn and develop new skills this school year. I have been teaching for eight years and this is my third year here in Chinese International School Manila. Prior to CISM, I served as a Kindergarten teacher at Xavier School San Juan for six school years. Aside from teaching, I also write books. I currently have three published textbooks under DIWA Publishing. I graduated cum laude from the University of the Philippines, Diliman with a specialization in Special Education. I also have credits in Educational Psychology from the same institution.
I have always believed in student-centered learning in my years as an educator. With this in mind, I go for activities that would elicit self discovery, curiosity, and collaboration.
In our journey to acquire new sets of knowledge and skills, please be assured that I am here to guide and help your children reach their aspirations and goals. Together, we may communicate through your child’s assignment notebook or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
