Welcome to school year 2017-2018
Hi! I am Ms. Mini G. Percano, your KG-1 Dolphins teacher. I would like to welcome you all to this new school year 2017-2018. This is my 10th year of teaching here in English Modern School. For me, there is nothing more fulfilling than working with the little ones. I believe that helping them love school and enjoy learning is very important. Learning is always fun!
