◈ Studied BS in Elementary Education major in English
◈ At PHINMA University of Iloilo
◈ Graduated 2004

list bulletWhy did I choose BEEd in English: During my high school days, the education course was very "in demand" and it felt like everyone is into it. So I guess, because of the notion, I got myself enrolled in the said course.

list bulletAbout my college education: As the name of the course suggests, it revolves around teaching students in the English subject. But as we know it, here in the Philippines, whether your major is in English, you will also be teaching Science or Music and even a lot more subjects. One good thing about being in this school and in this course is that it had taught me on how to be patient with students and mold them to be a better person.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently a Public School teacher in one of the elementary schools in my town.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: No man is an island as they say. It is very indeed true because I needed my friends, my classmates, and my professors to be the person I am now. All the learning that I had in the university were all what I needed in order to be a teacher right now.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I was hired a year after graduation in a private school. I had entered a public school 3 years after that.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BEEd in English: Always remember that to be a teacher is something that is a very rewarding profession. If you go to a private school to teach, the salary is quite low compared to those by the public schools.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Teaching is a passion. Teaching is something that can make a child succeed in his life or fail. If you want to be a part of someone's success in his career, go and teach.
