I have been with Alternative Learning System (ALS) of Department of Education (DepEd) for almost 12 years when I retired in the service. At first, I worked as an instructional manager for Out-of-School Youths (OSY) when I was teaching in Tortugas Elementary School, conducting classes for OSY on Saturdays and Sundays. Then, I was recommended to be the ALS Coordinator of the district. After three years, I became OIC of ALS while being the principal of M.P. Cuaderno, Bo. Central, and Tenejero Elementary School. Finally, I was promoted as Education Supervisor of ALS in Division of City of Balanga. I really thank God for this because I believe by means of ALS I can help the OSY and adults who were not able to acquire education that they wished to have, mainly because of poverty.
I would like to take this opportunity to inform the people of Balanga City that ALS opens up opportunity for OSYs and adults to develop, enhance and strengthen their talents and skills to become productive citizens in the future. One major training ground is the Functional Literacy which is intended for secondary dropouts. ALS plays an important role in promoting education for school leavers.
To the community people of Balanga City, ALS is not only the venue to enhance the education of our youths but also provides a venue for shaping-up their personalities who in the future will be of great help to the city and their communities..
My warmest congratulations to Ms. Masae Iijima, JICA Volunteer, and the staffs of KATUWANG for their worthy undertakings of having this newsletter because I believe a pen can be a potent tool to bring about to every community that ALS can be partner in transmitting information with regards to the important projects offered by the government through ALS of DepEd.
ALS needs your supports like donating chairs and tables for the students to make themselves comfortable while having their classes in some barangays. Let us stand hand in hand and work together for the common good of our OSY and adults.
