Here are photos from the 3-day Creative Writing workshop for teachers. I met Special Program in the Arts (SPA) teachers from Visayas and Mindanao. We tried to come up with zines and I shared some of the game-based writing I do in class.
On the night of our culminating activity, a Muslim teacher removed her hijab so I can bring it home. I know that I did not deserve it but I took it. I am deeply honored and moved by the teachers’ openness, kindness and cooperation. Always, I do not feel like the word “resource speaker” suits me because really, I am just sharing what I do in class and the activities my students push me to create. Always, I know that these teachers are equally passionate, competent and dedicated. (Special mention to Prof MJ Gabayeron for the photos). Click HERE to view some video clips from the workshop.
