UST Guild of Thomasian SpEducators General Assembly

Cooking demonstrations, fun run and other sports events – all these promote wellness and healthy living among Filipino children and families. Recently, I was invited to attend an event exclusively for aspiring Special Education Teachers from the University of Santo Thomas.

The Guild of Thomasian SpEducators ( UST-GuTS) is an accredited student organization of the University of Santo Thomas that envisions its members to become social catalysts equipped with values that will allow them to nurture the development of persons with special needs and inspire others to actively participate in its mission.

This gathering aims to re-affirm their identity as SpEducator, as an advocate of People with Disabilities (PWD) and Special Education (SpEd). The event serves as a continuity of camaraderie among Thomasian SpEducators who share the same enthusiasm of recognizing the eccentricity, individuality and uniqueness of exceptional individuals. Less than five hundred students arrived and spent some time with fellow students laughing and chatting while enjoying good food.

I love the mini chicken pie. It’s generous on vegetables and chunks of chicken served in mini cups but topped with small pieces of star biscuits making it more attractive and unique.


Say hello to new lasagna rolls! Recently I’ve seen a lot of chefs making use of lasagna sheets in creating new and exciting recipes. I still remember the one I attended during the ELBA Cookbook launch, another Chef prepared dessert using lasagna sheets placing cream and fruits in between. That night, I saw another interesting dish, Ms. Tiongkiao call it Mini Lasagna Rolls.


Making lasagna rolls is more difficult and time consuming compared to the usual lasagna dish. I like its filling, generous on sauce and meat, these lasagna rolls was loved by the Thomasian  SpEducators. The pasta was cooked just right and the bechamel sauce is a winner too! However, the mini fish burger filling taste a little sweet.

Ms. Tiongkiao told me that she makes and mixes her own juice which she did not revealed the brand. For me it’s too sweet but not sugary sweet so I wanted it to have more ice. It also smells sweet. I wonder what could be the flavor if she will add lemon or orange slices on it.

This cute mini cup cakes with minty flavor, topped with roasted peanut and soft chocolate cream are just fine. These mini cup cakes were baked by Chef Vonn Romero.

It was a great and memorable experience joining an event with the advocates of People with Disabilities. The group was lead and supervised by their President, Ms. Liona Jeane Guzman. It touches my heart  knowing that the student’s mission and commitment is serving people with special needs. As an individual not only as a blogger or healthcare provider, I recognize their importance and expertise and support every efforts of the Guild of Thomasian Educators. It was very inspiring watching the students full of energy as they actively participate in achieving the group’s mission.
Congratulations to UST-GuTS!
