Welcome to Kindergarten!  I am Sr. Tess Diana, a member of the Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect Sisters of the Philippines. I finished my academic requirements for Masters degree in Early Childhood Education at Cebu Normal University. This is my fifth year here at St. John’s.

I strongly believe students are like flowers blooming in the winter, varied in color, uniquely designed by God's magnanimous love. Each of them is special. They are God's project and I took part in molding and preparing them to be ready for life and for a bright future according to His plan. I personally believe all children can learn at their own pace and time. As a facilitator in the classroom, I afforded them with developmentally appropriate activities and watch them LEARN, GROW, and SUCCEED every single day!
