Reviews of BEEd in Early Childhood Education graduates:


About my college education:
My education was very enriching. Not only did I receive it from one of the top universities in the country, but as I compare it with other universities, I value the unique education UP gave me. UP is truly a society's sampler - one can meet ALL kinds of people, know what society really is (including its stratification and workings) , and be trained on politics and the reality beyond school life. UP is a haven of great minds; it is where artists, geniuses, achievers, and leaders thrive.

To be a successful Educ student, you have to be hardworking. You have to persevere to complete all your requirements--and with excellence. You won't pass with the high-profile mentors of Educ if you give less than a hundred percent of your effort. Most importantly, believe in yourself. Just because you're in Educ and you might not be taking higher Math or Science courses doesn't mean you're less smart than the students from other colleges. Just because you don't have a thesis requirement doesn't mean you're less of a person than the other students. Be proud because in real life, the teacher has the most difficult job.

My current job:
Elementary Math teacher
✓  Perfectly related to B Elementary Education, Major in Teaching in the Early Grades (K-2)


Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, I'm applying what I learned in university. I am applying the verbs I learned for lesson planning, I use appropriate teaching methods and activities to effectively teach math, and the technology and applications I learned in Computers in Education to connect with my digital learners.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I landed a job even while I was still in school.

Do I recommend studying B Elementary Education, Major in Teaching in the Early Grades (K-2):
Absolutely, because teachers are always in-demand in schools and the DepEd pays teachers well. Don't believe that public school teachers are still payed low. Research in your community first. Teaching is such an interesting career. Kids are so spontaneous and random you won't feel bored with them. And once you see the fruits of your dedication, I promise your heart will smile.
