High School Life, o my High School Life...

Just received my little brother’s report card… I would like to congratulate him for being one of the outstanding students of the class… Manang mana sa kuya… hehehe…

I will just like to retrieve my old message to my former classmates in our e-groups. Someone from the egroup asked for a complete roster of our past high school teachers and I was the first one to enumerate all of them. Many thanks to boredom, I have unearthed names of our former teachers in various classes. I would just like to reminisce and bring back the old times so here goes. This made me miss high school life again…

For those who cannot relate, I apologize. Classmates, welcome…

Here goes… Excerpts from my email:

"1st Year:

English -- Ms. Sarah Lumba, Mrs. Lorenzo (Track) JC, naalala mo pa si ma'am Lorenzo? ung sinilipan mo (allegedly) kaya ka naposte? hehehe...
Pinoy -- Mrs. de los Santos, (Mr. P*********), Mr. San Pedro(Nung nagkasakit si Ma'am)
AP - Mr. Gary Devilles (Binato si Bacani ng eraser... hehehe... Remember Bacani's report in his class? Ako si Gom, Bur, Za... Mag-isa lang siya noon eh... Remember?)
Science -- Moderator Mr. CMB (Not Color Me Badd, but Mr. Christopher M. Bautista) ang naging barkada ng 1-G.
Math -- Track eh... pero ang naalala ko lang na mga teacher eh si Dating Brother, Ngayon ay Father na, Bro. Earl Barredo, Mr. Sevilla, Mr. Silva, Mr. Abadejos, etc...
Religion -- Who would forget the cutest religion teacher in town? Ms. Eloisa Francisco... Tapos nawala siya, pinalitan ng clone... Ley Francisco... This just shows that cloning is not that successful at that time... hehehe...
Art -- Mr. Jasper de Leon... May email add nga pala siya... Wala akong masabi sa kanya eh kundi... Magaling siyang magdrawing!!! hehehe...

2nd Year:
English -- Dati, mga 1st quarter, isang Kanong palagi nagpapawis... Alam niyo ba yung pangalan niya? Tapos, biglang nahawi ang ulap, at mula sa langit, may dumating na isang mabangong- mabangong babae, nawalang bigla ang Kanong teacher, at pinalitan niya... Her name's Mitchie Pineda... And English was never the same again... hehehe...
Science -- Moderator Ms. Manuela Pagunsan... We've learned a lot from her... And we really became holy because of her... Dumami ang populasyon ng nagsisimba sa Chapel tuwing umaga dahil sa kanya... Puro 2F ang populasyon... Naging favorite tuloy tayo ni Fr. Caluag... hehehe...
Math -- Mr. Joel Sevilla... Naging complaint ng ilang mga parents noong introduction... Mahina daw ang boses... Pero amidst the controversy, we became good friends at madlas pa siaybng nakasama ng klase sa mga gimik...in fairness, ok siyang magturo ng Math... Yung ibang titser naman, malakas nga ang boses, wala namang laman ang sinasabi eh... hehehe... defensive!!!
AP -- Mr. Morano -- Isa sa pinakamaaangas na teacher sa Ateneo HS... Next to Mr. Brazal and Saramosing....

Science -- Mrs. Martin -- I remember her from her Famous "Disappearing Act" at nagpakaplastik pa si Jude at binapang "Ma'am, ok lang kayo?" Buti na lang, pinigil natin ang tawa natin para nagmukha tayong mabait na mga bata... hehehe... Pero sabi nga ni Bro. Dunne, "I woulda laughed!!!" hehehe... Remember the infopage, beeper days? May time na sabay-sabay na pinatunog yung mga pager ng mga tao at binuwisit natin yang si Ms. Martin ah. hehehe... Isa pa, pinagnanasahan ni Jomax yan dati... hehehe...
Math -- May track ulit... Si Ma'am Sacluti, ang ina ni Bhonny para sa class, at a nhiwalay, kay Mr. Paul Maligalig...

Filipino -- Mr. Ronan Capinding... Ang pinakamakulit na moderator ng section F... At ang magaling diyan, naging Jollibee endorser pa siya!!! Sa kanya ko natutunan ang kasabihan, "Lahat puwede, hindi lahat dapat..."
Computer -- Mr. GQ... nope, not the title for the sexiest guy in the world, but the initials of our beloved computer teacher... Gerald Quisumbing... Tinuruan niya tayong sumuntok sa blackboard... Hindi pader... However, recalling his statements... "We have to punch the wall, punch the wall, punch the wall... He's saying this while punching the BLACKBOARD!!! hehehe...

Science -- Si G. Pedrito Zabat... Did you know... Magaling pala siyang magbasketbol?! He's the moderator of Basketball club... ang position niya? CENTER!!!
Math -- Track pa rin ito... Siyempre, teacher natin dito ay ang moderator nating si Ma'am Arlene Belleza... BIG MAC, anyone? hehehe... Hindi sa akin galing ito... Sa isa nating kakklase... Kung nakausap niyo siya, ask him why she's called big mac... Kadiri... hehehe...
Tulong-Dunong -- Ms. Mercy de Guia... Ang teacher nating matiyagang pagturo kung paano magturo!!! hehehe... Parang paulit ulit, paulit ulit lang... Alam ko, hearthrob din tong si Ma'am eh... Alam niyo ba, hanggang ngayon, ganun pa rin ang itsura niya!!! Still staying fresh... Kaya JC, wag nang mag-atubili... hehehe...
Filipino -- Mr. Arvin Crisol... Nacornihan tayo sa kanya kasi nauna na nating naging teacher ang mas nakakatawa eh... Pero okey ang curriculum ng Pinoy 4 eh.. Short film... Dugo't pawis tayo noong mga shooting days, di ba?
