Filipino Teachers from PG County MD (3), Washington DC (1) and Baltimore MD (119), representing the Pinoy Teachers Network (PTN), were invited as special guests at the Digital Harbor High School Baltimore MD by the keynote speaker himself, Mr. Harry Wong, last Tuesday August 15 during the school’s New Teachers’ Orientation.

Mr. Wong is the author of “The First Days of School” and the most sought-after speaker in education today. More than half a million teachers all over the world adhere to his wisdom. He is a living legend to every successful teacher worldwide!

It was an honor and a privilege for PTN to be personally invited, to have our books autographed, to casually talk and have photos with him. He overwhelmed us with his presence and motivated us with his practical strategies, common sense, user-friendly, no cost approach to managing a classroom for high level student success. Because of his inspiration, indeed every Filipino Teacher will not only survive but thrive.

How awesome! Harry Wong's work is used extensively in our classroom management courses. Hope you are doing well Maria. I defended my dissertation and am back to my blogging friends now ;-)
