list bulletAbout my college education: If I had the freedom to choose my college course, I would have never picked to study to become a teacher. my interests were more inclined towards the arts. painting, interior designing, architecture, or maybe even gourmet cuisine. but due to the lack of opportunities and funds, I was stuck to being a future teacher. but although it wasn't my first choice, I still enjoyed it and because I enjoyed it, I was able to get good grades that immediately pitched me to a good job. I guess it all just boils down to choosing to become better in everything you do, working hard and appreciating what you have. For me, it certainly has yielded good results.

When I first went to our school I had three major problems:
1. I did not know anybody in my college and I was kind of an introvert.
2. I had no idea what to expect of my subjects.
and 3. The thought of being alone in a noisy crowd not knowing where to go terrified me. In short, I was scared and clueless or I was scared because I was clueless.

All my life, I had studied in one school since kindergarten so the transition was a bit of a shock for me. Although some of my friends went to the same university, I was the only one who took up Education so I was alone. I did not have anyone to go to class with, I did not know anyone in our college, and I did not have the know-how of my friends who had elder siblings who were already in college or had already graduated college. I was literally alone. luckily, my new-found classmates were friendly enough to approach me. In about a weeks time, I already had friends and acquaintances. two problems solved. my second problem took a lot more time to be resolved. my classes were difficult. I had a hard time coping up with the teaching strategies of the teachers but I have learned how to be agile and how to adapt to my surroundings. I asked a lot of questions. I borrowed notes from classmates. I never hesitated to ask queries to my professors in and out of the classroom. I spent a lot of time in the library. The idea of being able to graduate on time and to help my parents inspired me. By my second year, I already got the hang of it and started to like my classes especially my major subjects which included English and american literature, mythology, etc. which are subjects that I really like.

College life has many pros and cons. you get to learn the hard way but you get to enjoy yourself. youd learn a lot of things both in and out of the classroom. and sometimes, you may find true friends who will stick by you through thick and thin. just bare thisin mind, learn to live your life one day at a time, and if you are facing problems always remember that it is always darkest before the dawn.

list bulletMy current job: School teacher

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I use everything I have learned starting from understanding the different intelligences of children, their different learning stiles and how to be able to maximize the desired outcomes of the teaching-learning process.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Immediately after graduation during the opening of classes

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: Teaching is a noble job. If you like what you are doing, you would certainly be happy in your work.
