Why did I choose this course:
One of my classmate in high school persuaded me to take this course. I can say it's "mind influence" that driven me into this. Besides, I love teaching so why not?
About my college education:
Well, aside from geographies, ethics, cultures and history, the most important lesson I've learned is 'character' - in books and mine. Field trip was most difficult assignment for me because it's ripping off my wallet. In subjects, both English and Math were difficult, I suck in it... but it's okay, I love my major. 'Character' - you see all heroes were brave and were all past tense.'I'm using a figure of speech here'.... What I'm trying to say is sometimes wisdom is better than knowledge. So you must chose your best character and applied it in the real world.
As what I have observed almost all students taking up this course succeeded and there's no shifting because they find it hard. If you just listen well and make some extra effort like spending your free time on a library, exams won't do you any harm.. believe me. The basic is studying hard but I suggest that you put on more extra effort, not just settling down on what the professors had taught but you should explore more and always think that there is always beyond in everything. Persevere, be patient and think positively.
My current job:
I'm a Social Studies teacher.
I'm teaching high school students about geographies and history in a prestigious private school.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, really practical both academic and of course the attitude you establish. Patience in my very vocally naughty students....haha, positive thinking of all the negative feed backs. I give them the best teaching I could do and I never give up on them.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
After passing the board and getting a licence. I became a trainee before I become stable, so, maybe 8 months.
Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education Major in Social Studies:
For employment, I'm sure nowadays, this course is in demand locally.
The salary is very good, in some private schools, you can be payed 10,000 a month for a stater and will be 16,000 later on.
Very interesting and fulfilling, lessons both academic and characters, you could apply in your everyday life.
Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
This course will let you explore and uncover so many things, will let you know the untold stories and so many secrets in society. In fact, you will meet so many characters; heroes, heroines, villains and relate on their significant roles. So, if you would consider this course as your major priority, then, you should take the responsibility of loving and learning it's major concept and that is "learn from the past, present and future and don't give up on me!"......just keep going.. and success will be just a step away.
