Assumption College San Lorenzo ushers in a new school year, “a new way of being”, with its College Dean at the helm.
The College is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Ma. Margarita M. Ladrido as the OIC, Dean of the Higher Education Division (HED).
In her speech during Blue Is Best 2022, she imparts these words, “Being the best… It’s inside of you. It’s your mindset. You have to keep giving your best.” Dr. Ladrido brings to Assumption College nothing but the best with her plenteous experience in education innovation as well as visionary strengths. As the pioneer of our signature Ability-based Learning (ABLe) pedagogy, Dr. Ladrido is currently the AVP for Learning Innovation of the Institution. She has served as Chairperson of the Education Department, Director for Senior High School of the Basic Education Department (BED), and Chairperson of the General Education Department.
Dr. Ladrido earned her doctoral degree in Philosophy, Major in Educational Psychology, from the University of the Philippines. She obtained her Master of Arts in Education, Major in Education Administration and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology both from the Ateneo de Manila University. She graduated from Assumption College San Lorenzo High School in 1988.
Dr. Ladrido started teaching in Assumption in 1992 as a preschool teacher, and after a year, took a turn to build a career in different corporations and foundations that helped solidify her achievements. She returned to the Institution in 2008 as a professor and eventually became a Chairperson in the Higher Education Division.
Dr. Ladrido is an advocate for women and youth empowerment, furthering her commitment to the mission of the Assumption. Hallmarks of her career have centered on literacy, assessment, leadership, school innovation, epistemological beliefs, self-regulated learning, and cognitive flexibility— all for fulfilling meaningful collaboration and transformative education.
A new school year has begun! And unlike previous school openings, this year is particularly special because of the easing in and resumption of face-to-face classes!
HyFlex, the learning modality of Assumption College, combines hybrid and flexible class delivery, integrating in-class instruction and online synchronous and asynchronous sessions, serving diverse students with varying learning needs. Apart from classes, Assumption College has also introduced HyFlex school events and activities. Composed of “Roomies” or those attending in-person, and “Zoomies” or those attending virtually via Zoom, the community can choose to join such events on campus or online, also as part of our efforts for #SaferSpace.
The pilot HyFlex event was the recently-concluded Blue Is Best, a signature Assumptionista tradition to kick off the school year. And what a kickoff it was! With the theme “Celebrating HERstory and Empowering Women Through Sharing the Gift of Grace and Grit”, Blue Is Best 2022 was packed with different performances and activities that centered on Filipino culture, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and women empowerment. The week-long event focused on different org recruitment activities, while the main launch featured a day of invigorating performances by our talented students and from the different associations and organizations, faculty, and staff. Special guest Mikee Cojuanco Jaworski, a sports official, model, former actress and television host, and International Olympic Committee Executive Board member, delivered the opening remarks. Traditions include an oath-taking ceremony for the new set of student leaders; the chants “A-SS-U-MP-TION LET’S GO!” and ”BLUE-IS-BEST!”, and the symbolic torch-lighting ceremony. Ultimately, Blue Is Best 2022 highlighted the introduction and welcoming of the new College Dean, Dr. Ma. Margarita M. Ladrido. In her speech, she imparts these words, “Being the best… It’s inside of you. It’s your mindset. You have to keep giving your best.” to the College, leaving them awe-inspired and revitalised this special school year!
To commemorate this milestone, the Assumption Student Council, together with the Admissions and Marketing office, relaunched the Assumption College Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/acsanloofficial/) through an Instagram Reels contest!
