Teaching in the PI

My name is Melisa and I'm just joining the community. My mother is from the philippines, but has lived in the US for twenty years and I was born and raised here. I have recently begun really looking into and claiming my filipina heritage and am now desperate to get back to the Philippines. I am a senior in college and will be doing my student teaching in the fall of 07. Does anybody know of any schools in the Philippines where I might be able to do student teaching? It would be a great way for me to fulfill a graduation requirement while being able to be where I want to be and finding about more about my heritage. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know! (And if this would be good cross posted anywhere, please let me know that too!)

other filipino lj communities that can be of help,

tagalog, flipunited, and tagalogblogs

good luck! :)
best way (maybe?) would be to contact professors in the PI- maybe you can be a student teaching/research assistant at the university level. It'll probably be easier to get in with a public school than a private, as I know they're in desparate need of qualified folks.

good luck!
hi Melissa. i just frolicked upon your lj blog and i found out that you are into Deschooling.

in the Philippines i dont know if there are experimental schools under the Waldorf philosophy and/or Ivan Illich's Deschooling. but if you would like to introduce Alternative Learning and be the prime mover of it. Philippines is the perfect place.

i can only give you a link of my University website where i dropped-out. maybe the site might help you get in contact with some individuals in the academe who are probably thinking of doing the same as you. maybe you can give them courage.

here, search the College of Education.
University of the Philippines Diliman

it's the only radical university i know in the Philippines. although it was built by the Americans to propagate docile American Dreams in their colony.
cool, thanks for the input!
