Storyteller at heart
Judith Cabradilla Bacarro is an imaginative & creative storyteller at heart. She may speak slowly, loudly, happily, angrily or whatever the needed emotions are asked in her sessions. She dances and she leaps and at times, to the little children’s surprise and fun, crawls and rolls on the floor. Whether she’s speaking to a room of preschoolers, elementary, high school, college, graduate/professional students, or even to teachers, administrators, parents or professionals, she has the ability to weave in the natural ebb and flow with the highs and lows of a story that takes her audience on an exciting and thrilling journey on their seats.
As a teacher, Judith works with small, medium and large groups of students. She is often well-remembered for her and others’ life stories/experiences that remain in the hearts of her students- beyond the lessons and theories from books. She has been a consistent Outstanding Teacher from her college life up to the graduate/professional schools. She willingly listens to the diverse stories of her students and even colleagues.
Judith hosts programs too: from weddings, anniversaries, debuts and the like. She can speak before crowds in schools, hotels, funerals and other programs. She is not intimidated with short notice of invitation for she always readily FLOWS with the need of the moment.
Judith speaks at seminars, trainings and workshops of students, teachers, parents, school administrators, offices and even in church groups. She incorporates singing in her speaking career. She believes that songs have their way of finding a beautiful place in the heart of her listeners. Once she was invited to speak to the faculty of a prominent private school after the owner had listened to her sermon in church. After her talk to the faculty, she was then offered by the owner to teach in the said school and thereafter conducted couples’ seminars in different school venues.
Judith as EDITOR of two books:
- The Scent of a Diary-2002
- Biography of a Scout-2017
As a school principal, she does it with audacity, authority and empathy together with other school officials. She believes that she is growing in this great task that these three values along with many others are necessary tools to uphold the integrity of the school and its constituents.
She believes that each student is a GIFT to the world and that each one needs nourishment and nurture, not just from theories and lessons from books but as well as from everyone and everything around him including his environment – Mother Earth.
As President of an organization – Davao Association of Private School Administrators (DAPRISA, 2014-2018) with grace, wisdom and balance, together with the Board and officers. She believes in the power of teamwork and collaboration.
As Chief of Staff in one of the Life-changing seminars amongst professionals. She believes that whenever she is given the chance to do a particular task, she does it with an open heart and mind, willingly learning along with the learners and serving them with gladness of spirit.
What others say
Judith has been a friend and spiritual companion for about thirty-five years now. Our lives inter-weave, and she has gone through more than a fair share of “wounding” but she managed to transform these into wholeness. Her stories are worth listening to.
