cultivating culture

Ate (Ah-tay) Bebe teaches the Filipino Culture classes here at the school.
(Ate is the title of respect for females older than yourself.) Each of our children take one of her classes, and they love it!

She's taught them a variety of fun things about the Philippines.
They've tried new fruits, danced some traditional dances, played rubber band games, sunka (a mancala-like game) and outdoor games, learned some Tagalog, and about Philippine history and customs.
Thanks for being a fabulous cultural interpreter, Ate Bebe!
