A part-time faculty member of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) from Lyceum of the Philippines – Laguna (LPU-Laguna) was the subject of a recent feature by CNN, entitled “Teaching Against All Odds.”
Mr. Rizalino “Jon” Juliano was featured in a CNN report for World Teacher’s Day. As reported by news anchor Roanna Jamir, the three-minute segment focused on Mr. Juliano’s success as an educator despite having cerebral palsy. The video also featured shots of an actual class, and short interviews with students. Features by Miss Jamir form an ongoing series of human interest stories meant to uplift and inspire others.
Jon Juliano is the current coordinator of the LPU-Laguna Center for Language Learning (CELL) with a BA in Philosophy from the University of the Philippines, Diliman. He is currently taking up Masters studies in the same field at the Ateneo de Manila University.
In addition to administrative duties, he teaches Philosophy, Logic, English, and Service Management.
