Jesus Palma


Biography

For 50 years of his professional life, Jesus C. Palma had been engaged in elementary through tertiary schoolwork as a teacher, supervisor and administrator at the Ateneo de Manila University. He was also a teacher-trainer at the Ateneo Teacher Center and Resident Consultant for Curriculum and the Program for the Gifted at the Ateneo Grade School. He is what one may call a "professional practitioner." As a professor in the Graduate School, he tried to bridge theory and practice by teaching professional courses while pursuing his craft as an educator in the workplace. He started his own personal outreach program by conceptualizing and sharing the Curricculum Development System (CDS), a management based, teacher-oriented and student-centered approach to customizing curriculum and instruction in a particular school according to its vision and goals. He has introduced this approach in different schools all over the country, many of which have adopted the scheme especially those preparing for school accreditation. He has since written a book, with the same title, which is now being used by curriculum planners and developers as well as instructors in teacher-training institutions. For a while, he was also involved in school textbook and instructional materials production either as editor or writer. He has been a consultant to different private and congregational schools on school organizational development, planning and management, curriculum improvement, and faculty professsional advance ment. He has been invited on many occasions as a Speaker or Resource Person-Facilitator in professional trainning seminars and in-service training sessions for teachers, supervisors and administrators. In spite of all these undertakings and accomplishments, he wants to be known as a teacher, who took the road les travelled and chose to make his contribution to the great enterprise of forming the minds and hearts of the young in the service of God and country.
