On November 5, 2021, Fortune Life Insurance Co., Inc. in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Marylindbert International held the Virtual Teaching Orientation and Demonstration (TOD) with more than 500 participants nationwide among whom 100 were on Zoom while 400 on shared venues. TOD and Life Coaching are both part of the Value of Hard Work and Discipline Comprehensive School Program for school year 2021 to 2022.
Fortune Life expressed its gratitude to DepEd for more than three decades of harmonious relationship, and for their trust and support in the Values Advocacy Program. The company will continue its Life Coaching and Financial Literacy Webinars to enlighten our educators on the importance of being financially prepared against unforeseen circumstances.
The program highlights the Virtual Demo Teaching featuring the life story of Fortune Life founder, Amb. Antonio L. Cabangon Chua as presented by Rachel Villegas to Grade 4 pupils of P. Gomez Elementary School, Division of Manila. Inspired by the story of a shoeshine boy who became a business magnate, the students enthusiastically expressed their learnings and realizations that hard work, combined with discipline, is the key to success.
PRC Board member and K to 12 Consultant Paraluman R. Giron, LPT, EdD, acted as the pre-and-post conference moderator who evaluated each step taken by Villegas in her demo teaching. Paraluman explained that teachers must rethink and navigate the COVID19 crisis, reconceptualize their teaching methods and respond to the learners’ future needs and demands.
