129: “Use your community and use your resources because they're here to help you.” Teaching kapwa in the classroom and at home with Keani Dominguez
Another Dominguez for the TFAW Project books! Nani's cousin & 5th grade teacher Keani Dominguez takes the stage to share her journey in becoming a teacher, the rare opportunity she has to seize her passion for teaching Filipino studies & culture to kids, and how she wears her teacher hat at home to guide her own daughter, Ekena, in developing her own identity as a Pinay.
