Reviews of Bachelor in Business Teacher Education graduates:

John Michael Legaspi De Pedro
Studied Bachelor in Business Teacher Education (BBTE)
at Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Quezon City , Quezon City
Graduated: 2009

Why did I choose this course:
Teaching is my passion. I guess this is the gift that is embedded in my genes. It is in this field that I am empowered and can be productive at the best of my self. At the same time, through this, I can contribute to the growth of the community through instilling to my students social consciousness with human relationships, environmental awareness, social responsibility, etc.

This course can be used not only in teaching profession but also in office administration. I guess, that what makes this course different among other education courses. Our minor are focused on doing administrative and clerical functions.

About my college education:
Bachelor in Business Teacher Education focuses on business technology subjects in secondary education. In the current curriculum, it is under the Technology and Livelihood education (TLE). At the same time, the minor one focuses on Office Administration.

Of course, I learned the theoretical and conceptual framework of Education. At the same time, I learned how to apply it in the real classroom scenarios, which made me an outstanding student teacher during our time. But with anything that I do as a teacher, what was the most significant learning that I got was to have a heart for the students. This transcends the learning process into life application of inspired students.

With regard to the subject, probably I had only one field that I was not that comfortable to deal with, Math. I hate mathematical equations and computations, but I don't have any choice. But, because I was conscious with my vision and mission in life, I was able to move on with that particular field.

All exams were difficult, I guess in all courses. But preparations ahead of time was the only key for anyone who wanted to take home the bacon. Luckily, I was influenced by good and intellectual friends around, which also inspired me to update and upgrade my self.

One of the things that I am proud of with my course was no one transferred or shifted to other course. I guess, we were united in spirit.

Faith, patience, perseverance, good study habits, and quality relational connectedness with others - these were the keys in succeeding my course.

My current job:
As of the moment, I am pursuing priesthood under the Roman Catholic Church. My course is significant because I will be dealing with people in the ministry, proclaiming and living out the gospel that we preach. But before entering the seminary, I worked at Banco de Oro Unibank (BDO) Main Branch as a general clerk. The nature of the job was clerical works and other things that were requested by my superiors.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, it is. As I've said earlier, I could use the theoretical and conceptual frameworks that I had learned in the classroom in creating a good strategy on how I would be able to deliver well the teachings of the Church to the people.

As regards to my previous job, I was able to apply the learning from our office management subjects into the basic application on how to make my job nature convenient.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took me only a month before I had my job.

Do I recommend studying Bachelor in Business Teacher Education (BBTE):
Yes. BBTE course is most likely in demand in the field. We can be teachers in the field of education or we can be an administrative officers in a company. These employment opportunities are needed nowadays.
