Dr. Remylinda T. Soriano is the Education Program Supervisor in Mathematics, Division of City Schools, Manila, Philippines (Department of Education). She is presently supervising 2,041 Elementary, 475 Secondary and 56 Senior High School teachers with a total of 2,572 teachers. Aside from mentoring, coaching and giving of technical assistance to teachers, she is also monitoring and evaluating the performance of 180,341 learners in the elementary, 109,497 learners in the secondary and 13,283 learners in the SHS with total of 303,121 learners enrolled in 105 public schools in Manila. Remylinda, received her college degree at Manuel Luis Quezon University, and Masteral and Doctoral degrees at National Teachers College, both in Manila.
She became involved in Theory of Constraints for Education (TOCfE) last 2018, through a Short-term Course on Problem Solving Maps facilitated by Dr. Danilo Sirias, author of the program through the initiative of Dr. Jenilyn Rose B. Corpuz, her former Schools Division Superintendent. Only 330 Mathematics teachers enrolled in the course but now all teachers are using PSM tools in their classrooms. Slowly, she can now see the effect or impact of these tools to the performance of learners. She developed, together with her teachers, worksheets based on maximum learning competencies involving PSM tools, and included in the modules in Mathematics. She is lucky and proud to say that the Grade 9 Mathematics modules developed by Manila secondary teachers are to be used in national circulation which include PSM tools. Because of this, PSM tools are not only for Manila but for the whole Philippines.
A million THANKS to Dr. Danilo Sirias, Dr. Jenilyn Rose B. Corpuz and to the whole TOCfE family!
