TWO FACULTY members of Xavier School in San Juan recently received honors for their excellence in their respective fields.

Francis Jim Tuscano, a Grade School Ed Tech coordinator, CLE Department chairperson, and chief program officer and Tagpros co-founder, was an awardee in the International Society for Technology in Education To Watch for 2022.

The International Society for Technology in Education is home to a passionate community of global educators who believe in the power of technology to transform teaching and learning, accelerate innovation and solve tough problems in education.

The award honors 20 individuals who are already making a difference through their works and have exemplified excellence through projects or artifacts that others can replicate.

Meanwhile, Joel Hawod, a Senior High School Science teacher and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Biology teacher, received the 2022 Salindunong Award.

“After participating in one of the webinars sponsored by the United Federation of Fil-Am Educators, Hawod’s caliber as an educator was noticed by one of the organizers, and this paved the way to his eventual recognition,” Xavier School said.

The Salindunong Award honors active members of UNIFFIED who share their knowledge and/or expertise by conducting professional development training, seminars, webinar, or workshops under Salindunong initiative.
