Reviews of BSEd in English graduates:

E. M.
◈ Studied Bachelor in Secondary Education Major in English Minor in Physical Education
◈ At Philippine Normal University - Agusan Campus
◈ Graduated 2006

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: Through my frustration of not pursuing my first course that I chose, which was Mass Communication, I decided to take up this course. Somehow it filled in the frustration that I had before and that frustration turned to be my strength. Later on I started to love the power of teaching and teaching was the best thing happened in the 4 years of my college life.

list bulletAbout my college education: I love English. I thought it was just focus on English Grammar but all aspects of English Literature and Linguistics including Research were all injected into our young minds, but as the time went on, though sometimes it was hard for us to understand all the terminologies and topics but at the end we tried to understand and learn it from the heart because one day, it will be our turn to make our learners learn to love this subject.
Minor in Physical Education helped me to feel balance in everything because of too much reading literary works, sometimes I experienced Mental Fatigue. I took my PE class as a tool to overcome my mental fatigue. Everything was okay for me. As a student, I always inculcated in my mind and in my heart that being a student of PNU Agusan was not that easy but later on you will enjoy it more and more.

list bulletMy current job: I am presently teaching Research 1 and English Teacher of Open High School Program of Muntinlupa National High School. I am teaching basic research to Grade 8 students of Science and Technology Engineering Curriculum.

A month after graduation, I decided to find my luck here in Manila and worked as a call center agent but it just made me 1 year to work in BPO company because of health problems due to schedule. After one year, I decided to apply in private school in North Fairview QC for 3 years. then I went home to our province in Surigao del Sur and landed a job as Facilitator of Alternative Learning System teaching Out of School Youth and Adult who did not finish elementary and high school. then 2012 I went back here in Muntinlupa City.I wasn't able to catch up the ranking of Public Sschool Teachers in DepEd Muntinlupa. I decided to apply in private school for a year and then I applied again in DepEd Muntinlupa as teacher 1.a fter made some test, interview and demo teaching, on April 15 2013. the Muntinlupa National High school principal texted me that I was chosen for Teacher 1 regular Permanent Teacher..It took me 7 years to achieve my dream of being a public school teacher.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes. I use it everyday of my life as a teacher inside and outside the classroom. the strategies that I learned and I used in my work are tasks for students that applies Multiple Intelligence that according to Gardner, all of the people in this world has unique talents and skills..for example in the classroom setting. not all students have the same skills. they have weaknesses but it doesn't mean that a certain student will be considered as a poor student. to avoid discrimination, we applied activities that would fit to the students capability and understanding. another strategy is the discovery approach. the traditional teaching is teacher -centered but in the 21st century. the learners do the discovery of the lesson. the teacher acts as facilitator and the concept being emphasized that in the classroom setting allow the students to talk and talk to develop their communication skills. It is called Student-Centered Approach.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: Yes, I would definitely recommend this course. BSE English Teachers is in demand in private and public school. but if you are a fresh graduate and you weren't able to get the regular permanent position in Public school, the best job that would match this course is Online English Teacher to Koreans and other Asian Countries, Tutorials, Online Writers and Proof readers.

Salary Level for Public School teachers in Teacher 1 Position ranges 18,000.
if you want extra income you can apply for part time tutorials in English.
Online English Teachers salary ranges from 10k up to 20k, It depends upon your client, and learner.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: My advice to those people who wanted to consider taking up this course is start learning to become a reader. Being an English Major needs to become appreciative and open minded to literature and literary pieces. In taking up Minor course, appreciate the culture of the people in different parts of the world through dance and sports.
Last but not the least, enjoy what you are doing.
