About 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.

G. J.
Studied BEEd in Special Education
at Mindanao University Of Science And Technology , Cagayan de Oro
Graduated: 2012

Why did I choose this course:
I was doing a research on which work can be in demand for the next four years. Practically sharing some information, Special Education graduates are easily hired around the world with higher currency salary fee. Special Education also is newest to my hearing at that time. I was sure that I don't have the heart to teach children with special needs but still tried my luck for the rewards I might get after graduating the course.

About my college education:
My course was quite theoretical mentioning the SpEd here in the Philippines is based from America. We were more into theories during the first two years, and the last two years were more into application.

Most of the subjects are difficult but research can be be very difficult. Doing research is way too unlikely from doing reports or studying given information. Research requires skills that are to be studied, time, effort, money, patience, advisers and personal discipline to finish it.

Passing the exams was not that difficult if you are really studying, even you only have a few of books as your resource. My batch mates were intelligent and competitive people. Everyone was more encouraged to study knowing that other departments treated education students who has the easiest subjects.

My current job:
Montessori Elementary Guide

Am I using what I learned in college:
Job-hunting
AusAid (Job Enabling English Proficiency)
Interpersonal Skills

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
1 month

Do I recommend studying BEED-SPED:
I can only recommend BEED-SPEC to the people who have a really in-depth understanding about children with special needs. Patience can be one of the necessary skills.

BEED-SPED teachers can earn from 7k-9k as starting. Different places has different rates.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Do not be bookish. Go out and look for a place where you can volunteer as a SpEd teacher or as an assistant. Always remember that education does not prepare you for life for it is life itself as qouted by John Dewey. Educate yourself in many ways as you can. Stay hungry for knowledge!

Studied Bachelor of Elementary Education
at Tarlac State University , Tarlac City
Graduated: 1994

Why did I choose this course:
It is a noble profession. I love teaching kids and as far as I'm concern, I'm willing to teach children whatever type they are. Everybody deserves to have a education,

About my college education:
I have learned how to truly value the quality of education. In this course, though it's quite difficult, I have still managed it. In my opinion, there no specific subject or assignments that I have tackled to be difficult. Because as long as you're optimist, everything will be well. It just the matter of fact that you're studying very hard. I have learned to many useful things in TSU, you can not just use it to your profession, but also you can use it in your everyday living.

Exams were somewhat difficult, but I assure that I have learned a lot. Time management is the key during exams. You need to be organized. Don't just focus on the one number/problem which you can't answer. Some fails, but it's the matter of fact that they really study hard nor prepared for the exams.

The traits that we should all have in this course is that being patient. Never cram. And always think positive no matter what life brings you.

Am I using what I learned in college:
I have learned so many things in College, and I've been using it until now. Like the patience to your students. Patience is a virtue. There are so many types of students in a school. So we should all remember that they still need to have a proper way of having a good manners and right conduct. And now that I'm a mom now, I can share my experiences as a student and as teacher now to my child.

Do I recommend studying BS in Elementary Education:
If you really love teaching, then go for it! I'm confident that you won't regret it. Aside from benefits that you'll have, the salary really satisfy our needs and wants. But always think, that we all be first a good follower before being a good leader!

at Pagadian Capitol College , Pagadian City
Graduated: 2011

Why did I choose this course:
I chose this course because I wanted to be a teacher. I love kids. I wanted to teach them more than academics.

About my college education:
Sometimes difficult, because there were some subjects that I can't understand directly most of the practice teaching. Sometimes easy and fun, but all subjects are interesting. Patience for the students and also the way of teaching is most important. Some exams were, well, not that hard but you should make some extra study. You will need patience and dedication.

My current job:
I'm an Elementary Teacher. Teach academic and moral values.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, in academics and attitude which I'm teaching my students. But the most important is the lesson in life that I've learned and I'm applying it on the real world.

M. R.
Studied Bachelor of Elementary Education
at The National Teachers College , Manila
Graduated: 2009

Why did I choose this course:
My mother was a teacher, and so was my aunt and other relatives in the family. I guess it runs in the blood. Financially speaking, it was one of the best courses around which offers security.

About my college education:
I learned a lot of things from studying BEED at NTC. From simple things like knowing the difference between a pupil and a student to complicated things such as how to manage a class and how to deal with a student's behavior. One of the most difficult subjects I have encountered was Math, and among the difficult assignments, although not paper/subject-wise, was being assigned to handle the Elementary Student Teachers Organization all while doing on-campus practice teaching and attending two other subjects in the afternoon. But it was all worth it, because through these sort of experiences I was able to learn how to manage time wisely.

Exams are difficult, yes, but nothing is too difficult to anyone who takes time to study. Some people do fail exams, but they are given chances through special exams and some other requirements needed to complete the course. Not many I know from the college shifted courses. Most of the time, those who enter NTC are very much decided, since the beginning, that they like to be a teacher.

Discipline, patience and hardwork, mostly, is what I think is needed in order to succeed in this course. The loads of assignment given plus other sort of works seem like a preparation to a teacher's unending tasks. Without discipline or hardwork, and especially patience, I think it would be quite hard to get through.

My current job:
Currently, I am a public school teacher. I handle intermediate classes and teach Journalism to both Grades V & VI pupils, as well as English and Filipino to other Grade V pupils.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Everything I learned from college was practical. From lesson planning to classroom management, teaching approaches and techniques as well as discipline, I was able to apply everything in what I do now. Even before teaching, every grammar and English lesson I've taken was helpful then, being a call center agent.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I graduated October 17, 2009 and got hired at a company on October 23, 2009. The wait wasn't very long.

Do I recommend studying BS Elementary Education:
Yes. I would highly recommend BS Education as it has a very large range of employment of opportunities. There's the public school, the private school, tutorial services, as well as opportunities abroad and the like.

The job offers good pay with very good security of tenure. A fresh education graduate can probably expect P10,000+ salary working in tutorial services, P14,000+ working in a private school, and P20,000+ for the public school (plus other benefits!). An additional P2,000, I believe, is available for public school teachers who get promoted from Teacher I to TII, and the same for TII to TIII. If you become a Master Teacher, salary is within P30,000-P33,000; not to mention other opportunities to be promoted as a principal or a supervisor.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Take the course seriously. Being future educators themselves, they have to study well and work hard to be able to reap future fruits of such labors.

Studied Bachelor of Elementary Education
at Arellano University In Pasig , Pasig City
Graduated: 2002

Why did I choose this course:
I wanted to follow the footsteps on my mother. She is a school teacher.

About my college education:
I learned how to teach children Math, English, History, Arts. I learned how to be a good communicator and motivator. During my college days, I struggled a lot on the Thesis it is because during that time I work part time on a fast-food chain. The most useful things I learned was how to be sensitive on student's needs, how to be organized and how to be creative.

To be able to succeed in this course, you must study hard and be resourceful. Learn how to use the things around you and convert it to useful information.

My current job:
I am a grade 2 teacher in a private school. I teach multiple subjects, Math, History, English, GMRC, etc.

Am I using what I learned in college:
I learned how to teach children math and English and all the other subjects they are supposed to learn in school. The job of a teacher, however, is complex, and it requires skills you won't learn in college. Either you are born with them or you have to develop them somewhere along the way.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
2 months

Do I recommend studying Bachelor in Elementary Education:
Yes, there are a lot of opportunities of teachers here and abroad. If you are a fresh graduate, invest first on experience, don't mind the low salary. After you get a proper experience, high salary will follow.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
You should have self discipline and learn to prioritize your goals. College is very different than high school. There are a lot of temptations in order for you not to go to class. This is the time you are expose to alcohol, gimmick, bars etc.
