Meet the educators behind MRC

MRC Coaches



Albert A. Basa, Top 3, April 2009 LET

MindGym Coach and Associate Educational Director

Fell in love with teaching at age 10 as a young catechist in his hometown in Aurora province. Albert recalls, “It was fun and creative! After my first one-and-a-half-hour catechetical class, I knew I was destined to be a teacher”.

Mo/am Alice, September 2008 LET

MindGym Coach and Educational Administrator

A gleeful golden lady who found a path in teaching’s wonderland! Alice never dreamt of being a professional teacher (though she’s had several brief stints in training, teaching, and education administration locally and overseas). She has been for most of her life a power and energy planner, a mom for all seasons, and a student for life.

Coach Melane Manalo

Melane Manalo, Top 3, April 2010 LET

MindGym Coach

Melane’s first experience with teaching goes as far back as her second grade—she would play teacher to her classmates during lunch breaks. Her parents recall even earlier episodes of Melane at around four years old asking their friends to pose as students while she appeared to “lecture.”
