NCF teachers and staff welcomed three new Nihongo teachers during the school’s quarterly Faculty Development Program (FDP) held last April 22, 2018. After undergoing seven months of training, Mary Rose Aquino, Kevin Paul Bautista, and Paolo Miguel Cruz successfully fulfilled all the requirements of NCF’s Intensive Teacher Training Course and will start teaching their Japanese Beginner’s classes on April, 2018.
Ms. Carmencita K.C. Biscarra, FDP program manager, together with Dr. Edwin P. Mojica, Ms. Charisma P. Coloma, Mr. Josef O. Orillo and Ms. Leah H. Tuazon handled the training for the new teachers. Among the requirements of the training were to create lesson plans and do demo lessons, besides attending lectures on Nihongo and pedagogy.
The quarterly meeting also served as a welcome for returning teachers, Ms. Anne Marie P. Badilla and Ms. Durabel A. Durain, and a new staff member, Ms. Diana Freishanne Tan, who is working as Admin Assistant for NCF.
Other matters that were discussed during the meeting were plans to update teaching materials, revisions on the school’s Intermediate Japanese exams, and plans for the upcoming Kake Speech contest and NCF Open House.
