Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales, together with Voice Care Executive Director Ada Cuaresma conducted the Voice Care for Teachers workshop as part of the In-service training of the University of the Assumption, Pampanga on June 1, 2015.
About 300 teachers gathered to learn about how to take care of their most valuable teaching asset. The 2-hour workshop started with the VoiceMaster talking about the Generation Z – the youth of this generation that make up majority of the classroom population. He explained the different behaviors and lifestyle of these young people, so that the teachers can understand their students better.
This was followed by Voice Care Philippines’ Executive Director, Ada Cuaresma, who tackled the subject of vocal health. Ada discussed the threats and vocal demands being placed on the teacher’s voice. She also had the class perform exercises to practice and experience the process.
Towards the end of the workshop, the floor was given to the teachers to share their own stories of having voice problems as part of their vocation. The Voice Care team also announced their upcoming book, “Voice Care for Teachers” written by none other than the VoiceMaster.
