Mabuhay! My name is Toribio III but known to be Mr. Mark and I am the Year 3 Blue Deputy Teacher. This will be my 4th year at HeadStart and I am extremely excited about continuing to work with the HeadStart children. I am from the Philippines and graduate from University of Antique with a degree of Bachelor of Special Education specialising teaching the Mentally Handicapped. I have had the opportunity to teach in various private schools in my country which enabled me to more flexible and adoptable teacher. I have a passion for teaching and molding young people’s minds and I think it is very important to show respect to each child and treat them as individuals. My classroom environment is always a place where children feel safe and secure. HeadStart is a place where there is an emphasis place on school being a happy, safe and welcoming community where all are respected, encouraged and supported to excel and reach their full potential. I am humbly looking forward to meeting you all and continuing the journey in the new academic year!
