I developed a passion in teaching young children to read in a way which I found effective for my previous students.

ABOUT ME

I started my journey as a Workbook Creator when it was offered to me by Sir Abner in the Commons PH group. I was just starting out with my educational Facebook page, Reading is Fun (@readwithus2020), wherein I shared a lot of reading materials for Preschool students. Since I handled Preschool students, I took interest in creating colorful and child-friendly learning materials. 

Also, I developed a passion in teaching young children to read in a way which I found effective for my previous students. I am hoping that more parents and educators can utilize it in teaching children to read at a young age.

INTERESTS

I only learned about Basic Photoshop during my high school days. During College, I have learned more about it through observation as I always watched and supervised over the work of our Layout artists. From there, I learned more about using the program and I never got it into practice until I was employed. I became the Marketing officer of our school in charge of our Social Media accounts. With this, I learned to explore more designs that are suited for my current organization.
