Beware of Temporary Lock in FB

Have you experienced 'Temporary Lock' in Facebook? It happened to my FB account with profile name, Dsl Indanan South. I wondered why I could no longer post photos and share my posts. It frequently notified me, 'Sorry, you're temporarily locked'. I thought hacker entered my account. I tried to Google it why happened that case to my FB account. Accordingly, I violated the Community Standards of Facebook, perhaps. I browsed the Community Standards where I met some of it like sharing non-public post to others. I admitted that violation because I was fond of sharing others' posts without being aware of the status of posts. Either public, friends or close friends status of any posts did not catch my consciousness. So, my FB account would only be opened but it didn't work in posting. It was a gigantic repentance on my part until I decided to create new FB account named Indanan South in lieu of my temporarily locked account.

Caution in Facebook really matters to avoid from being locked. To make this as a habit, see first the status of post before sharing it to others or to your timeline.

Parent-Teacher Conference

Before  the Conference

Send a personal letter to each parent to confirm the day, time, and place of the conference. Inform parents ahead of time about the purpose of the conference. Gather file folders or portfolios of each student's work. Be sure your schedule is coordinated with other teachers in the school. Many parents will have more than one child in school and need sufficient time with each teacher.

If necessary, make arrangements for an interpreter for non-English-speaking parents. Review notes on each student's behavior, academic progress, and interactions with peers. Establish no more than two or three concerns or issues. More than that will discourage most parents. Clarify ahead of time who, exactly, will be attending each conference. Is it the child's biological parents, a relative, a guardian, a grandparent, a foster parent, or who? Check and double-check names.

Stimulating Light of Inspiration

I really appreciate his humility and unpretentious character of the best Asec for Programs and Projects of the DepED-ARMM. I just sent graduation invitation via FB private message expecting him in the 4-cluster Graduation Exercises 2015 of eleven elementary schools in Indanan South District scheduled from March 26-27, 2015. I was surprised when my Samsung Galaxy Duos rang. It was Sir Alsid Pakam, Executive Assistant of the Asec phoning me on their departure from Zamboanga City on the 25th day of March, 2015.

Whoopee! Blessed arrival and warm welcome. . . to the momentous morning of both Palan ES and Timbangan ES Joint Closing Exercises 2015 then another earnest welcome in the afternoon prepared by Joint Graduation Exercises 2015 of Kasambuhan Village ES and Panglima Mammah ES.

In the eve of guest speaker's departure, I texted Sir Alsid requesting the basic profile of Sir Noor. It was on their arrival in the Guest House, Notre Dame of Jolo College Campus where Sir Alsid sent it thru bluetooth.

Before Sir Noor delivered his inspiring message, Hja. Nalda J. Muksan, Head Teacher - III of Langpas ES used the microphone for the introduction of the guest speaker that sounded in the following: 

"Graduate BS Nursing from WMSU, year 1993 and is a Registered Nurse by profession having passed in the Licensure Exam in the same year.

He completed Graduate Certificate in Governmental Management in 1996 and graduated at the top of his class with Master of Public Administration with specialization in HRMD in 1997 from Mindanao State University.

He did a Shrai'ah Training Course conducted by the Shari'ah Academy of the International Islamic University Pakistan in 2000. 

He completed Post Graduate Diploma in Peace and Development and is completing his Ph.D. in Peace and Development Education from Notre Dame University.

He was the youngest participant from ARMM to an In-Australia Study Tour and led the Region's Management Information System and bagging the Excellence Award outsmarting even Region 11 and 12. 

He was the youngest Muslim Consultant in the Australian-funded BEAM Project in Region 11, 12 and ARMM. His team assisted DepED Central in the Development and the Delivery of the ALIVE Program and Pilot Madaris which are now implemented nationwide. Their products from 23-day LEAP Program to the 2-year ATEP, from 3-month ALEP to the 1-week Language, Cultural and Program Immersion, from the Arabi Phonetics Abd Phonemics in the curriculum to the regional operations manual, all are now national prototypes still needed by DepED to this day. The progressive offering model of the ALIVE Program he introduced has now produced back-to-back graduates grade 6 in English and and level 6 in Arabic for the last five years. 

He helped design what is now BEAM-ARMM. He also helped design what is now BRAC ADM Learning Centers benefiting 30,000 learners in the ARMM.

He was also the 2nd youngest and the only Filipino, Asian and Muslim in the team of 12 training facilitators from around the world for the Aus-AID Peace, Conflict and Development Learning Package.

He is a native of Sulu, having been born at Tulay, Jolo and completed his elementary at Notre Dame of Jolo Grade School. From his father side, he traces his roots to the Kasalipan of Ipil, Maimbung.

In 2012, he joined the invitation of RG Mujiv Hataman to join the ARMM reform government and left a good paying job in Manila. From 2012 to 2013, he was Assistant Secretary for Operations. Since 2014, he is now In-Charge of Programs and Projects." 

Reading of the aforementioned guest speaker's profile was also done in the second day graduation cluster of Panglima Ahajan ES and Pasil ES. Afterwards, the biggest cluster came next in Barangay Poblacion where Langpas ES, Mukammali ES, Panglima Indanan CS and Poblacion ES looked hungry but they're excited to engage in the ceremony with Sir Noor. 

Sir Noor's graduation messge was finally delivered in the afternoon of March 26, 2015 at Bunot ES. He had the same message starting from first day until the end of the day's graduation. His message was deeply grasped by all listeners because it was in mother tongue of his  fellow Tausug people of Sulu.
