Sacred Heart School – Ateneo de Cebu Grade School Department has re-opened its doors to onsite elementary benchmarking. On September 29, 2022, the Grade School Academic Council, composed of the Early Education Unit Coordinator, subject area coordinators and the Grade School Principal’s Office administrative staff, welcomed thirteen communication arts teachers from St. Louis College-Cebu Grade School Department. The school has accommodated the latter’s request to observe selected classes and gain insights on effective teaching strategies in nurturing skills in the Filipino, Language, and Reading.
Fr. Michael I. Pineda, S.J., School President, and Mrs. Lea P. Amores, Grade School Principal, opened the benchmarking with a courtesy call and welcome program. The Grade School Academic Council came in full support to this initiative as they collaborated and engaged the guests in professional conversations about teaching and learning. The Early Education, Reading and Language, and Filipino coordinators interacted with their counterparts and briefly discussed educational trends in light of new normal classroom practices.
Mrs. Maria Theresa R. Alejandrino, Ms. Maria Lisandra R. Tugaoen, and Ginang Mary Jane R. Becher, the Early Education Unit, English, and Filipino Coordinators respectively, shepherded the visiting teachers from St. Louis College-Cebu Grade School Department to their assigned classrooms to observe exemplary teaching strategies.
