“Through this event, I was able to discover what dyslexia is, and hopefully will be able to know if my students are showing manifestations,” Rodel Marayan, MATESL 1, shared.

The event was attended by the current students and professors under the Master of Arts of Teaching Special Education (MATSpEd), Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language (MATESL), some alumni of these graduate school programs, and CSTE faculty members.
