What an exciting way to spend the week knowing oneself than to spend it with six dozens of strangers. Yup that’s exactly the scenario when I attended the PPEP (Personal and Professional Enhancement Program) given by the SDD-HRDS of DepEd headed by their energetic Chief Mam Zaida T.

Thanks also to the Management Team compose of Mercy, Elena, Fe, and (the hyperactive) Noel. Hope to see you again guys. (Invite nyo ulit ako ha!)
