I have been teaching Chemistry for thirty three (33) years. Presently I teach Chemistry at the Ateneo de Manila High School since 1998. In april 2010, I was a participant in the YAC (Young Ambassadors for Chemistry) sponsored by IUPAC held in Manila. I would like to share this with you during the Chemistry Week in Singapore.

During the 33 years I have attended seminars in Chemistry and has been a resource person as well for seminars and training of workshops for public and high school teachers in the Philippines. At the moment, I and my colleagues are finishing a laboratory manual and worksheets to be used for third year Ateneo de Manila High School students for the school year 2011-2012.
