◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ 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.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Ateneo De Davao University
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: I love teaching. When I was in high school I used to tutor my cousins about their lessons in school. I like it when people learn something from me. It feels fulfilling.

list bulletAbout my college education: I learned a lot especially about K12. We were exposed to K12 even before it's applied in Philippine curriculum. We are exposed to intel teach online and so many forums. I liked how our curricula is updated always to fit our needs to become excellent 21st century teachers. Though major English subjects are real hard and a pain in the A, it sure is worth it learning all of them. I loved linguistics so much! Theory application in literature is sure hard but awesome and motivating.

Exams are not easy I tell you but it's really going to test how much you've learned. Some of my classmates failed and had to repeat the subject the next semester but they have the motivation to repeat and pass the subject thanks to the teachers who always teach us to become determined individuals and better educators for the future.
For one to succeed in this course you will always need determination. Passion. Patience. Perseverance and good attitude. Be positive in life and become motivated to never give up.

list bulletMy current job: I am now working online as an English teacher.
I am yet to take my LET exam. Once I earn my license I will soon work in school.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I got hired even before I graduated. Thanks to our schools name and to the training they gave me.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: You don't need to be an expert English speaker because you're here to learn. Believe me you'll learn it once you're already in. You came to learn so you must be open to learn and change for the better. You may not be as diligent but you will be once you become part of us. You don't need to force yourself to change because joining us here will give you inspiration to become better where soon change you to that best version of you in the future.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Mondriaan Aura College
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletAbout my college education: Learning is fun, it is the only way for us individuals to be rational. I believe that as long as we live, we learn. Learning is dynamic it never stops. I have decided to offer my life as a teacher to reach out to those who are in need. I know I don't have enough money to help the unfortunate ones, but I know by constructing with them the kind of education that I have gained from my college years I know I will be able to generate meaningful changes in their lives.

Us teachers, We have to balance our personal and professional qualities as individuals. I understand that human personality is the vehicle to effective teaching, but there's no specific formula for being a teacher. Although we have certain qualities to maintain such as having a pregnant mind, patience, positive, communicative, dependable, compassionate, creative, value based, individually perspective etc.

list bulletMy current job: Elementary and High School teacher

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, I think I was able to apply the things I have learned from my college professors.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I was offered to teach in a very prestigious school here in Olongapo
Even before my graduation.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: What I liked about this job is that I was able to make changes in the lives of other individuals. It is fulfilling and noble. Teaching is more than just a profession, it is driven by strong passion and dedication. It is a calling. I wouldnt be here without the permission of God. This is what God has ordained me to do therefore I must continue.
It is not satisfying when it comes to salary, it is considered as the noblest profession although there's more to life than having a huge amount of money... If you make money the center of your life therefore you will be controlled by money. Make God as the center of your life so that you will be guided by his omnipotent hands. Choose a career that fills not only your pocket but also your heart. Fill your heart with happiness and contentment. Evaluate your skills before choosing a career. Be proactive and always be optimistic. Look at the brighter side of life and be strong and have faith, let me just remind you that there's a hand guiding our steps.
God Bless!

◈ Studied BSEd in General Science
◈ At Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute Of Technology
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletAbout my college education: First and foremost, my course is really interesting. It is all about science. I learned about almost everything. From geography, astronomy, meteorology, bio, chem, physics, everything. Very wonderful course. It is not difficult too because all the subjects are just fundamentals of all sciences so I don't need to learn complicated concepts. I enjoyed the field trips, field research and experiments. They were all related to real-life situations. Of course it was challenging. I learned how to answer super basic daily life questions like "why is the sky blue?" " why is the sea salty?". These questions exist in our little minds but not all people knows the real answer.

I learned huge amount of things. I gained bulk information regarding our daily lives. I learned how to interact with people around while trying to solve basic daily questions.

list bulletMy current job: I am a science lab technician.


list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Indeed, I am using all I learned in the college laboratory. Basics lab things like how to use beakers, how to operate Bunsen burners are there. So I don't need to run and get scared when something is wrong with the Bunsen burner.

I also learned basic first aid and I am applying it today in my present job. Things like what to do when a student spills chemicals, what to do when a student burns himself with hot water. Its really nice. I love what I am doing.

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

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in General Science: Yes, there are only rare science graduates, and opportunity is high. So employment is good and salary also is good for science teachers and lecturers.

This course is very nice, interesting and fulfilling. Everything learned in college is all applicable in real life situation.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Mountain View College
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletAbout my college education: It prepares one to be fully equipped in the teaching profession. Getting a degree is no easy though, but enjoying and inclining every activity to your interests will always make things enjoyable.

Technically, basic skills are necessary and important in the teaching profession. However, you should have stand out skills in the English language, reading, and speaking, relationship to people and patience.

list bulletMy current job: Currently practicing my profession as an English Teacher in Thailand

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, the attitude that was inculcated are the most important. Other things I've learned are just a plus. I am currently using patience, positive attitude, and interpersonal skills.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Less than 3 months. This is because I have to refuse some job offers. It was not a real problem.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: Of course. Teaching is the most noble profession. Employment is never a problem to those who have the right attitude. While teaching may not get you to the bed of roses, the fulfillment of sharing the knowledge and your students becoming good citizens of the world is good enough. Careers in the business worlds are more promising, teachers can easily get pass through this if they work hard. They normally have the attitude to make it to the top management anyway, leadership, positive attitude, willingness to help, and to grow further.

Salary depends on your workload and responsibilities. Being a teacher all your life may not get you rich, but no less than poor. If satisfied with that, go for it. If not, you can easily work your way to the realms of the business world.

◈ Studied Bachelor of Secondary Education
◈ At Philippine Christian University
◈ Graduated 2010

list bulletWhy did I choose Secondary Education: To tell you honestly, education wasn’t the first course that I took up in college. I started my college life at Emilio Aguinaldo College in Dasmarinas Cavite under the course of Business Management. Just like most of us I guess, I really didn’t know what I really wanted back then. All I know is that I have to finish college with a course that is considered to be flexible and general so it’s going to be very easy for me to land a job. But as time goes by, I realize that being a business manager is not really what I wanted to be and I’m really having a difficult time imagining myself as one, and so I decided to shift to education. Since I was a kid, I remember that we always play a teacher student type of game where I always play the role of the teacher and my siblings are my students. I’m also a type of person who always talk about something, I love talking a lot especially with my friends. Actually, I was also a lector and commentator at our church, so talking in front of a large crowd

list bulletAbout my college education: The course education can be very boring if teaching is really not your thing. But for me, as teaching or talking in front of a lot of people is what really makes me alive. To be honest, my course and major Filipino is really not that difficult since it is my mother tongue and it is like going back to your early school days again. What is difficult is the part where you need to be on duty on some private or public school since you really don’t have much freedom in choosing the school where you want to conduct your practice. Another thing is the environment of the school, the faculty, and the students. This is the most challenging but fun moment of the course because this is the time where you need to prove to the attending observers, your professors, and yourself that you actually have what it takes to be a good teacher.

To be honest, it took me several times before I pass the license exam mainly because I refuse to attend a review school since I have a job. It is as if you are going to war without enough ammo or not having a concrete plan of attack. After failing twice, I decided to look for a good review school and after that, I nailed the exam. So for you aspiring teachers out there, don't feel to confident because you will never know what's going to came out from those papers. It is better to be prepared and sacrifice some extra time to study to prevent losing more time because you fail several times.

For the first couple of years, what you need is mostly the same set of skills and attitude that is also required in any other course like being hard working, ability to understand things easily, punctual, basically things that will make you pass all of your subject, just like I told you, the theoretical side of education is really not that difficult compared to economics, engineering, or nursing. If there are any special skills that you need in order to succeed in this course is that you need to be very attentive to details. Computing hundreds of quiz and test papers can be very stressful and might affect the accuracy of your computation, so you really need to stay attentive and alert. Another skill that is required in this course is a good pronunciation of words and vocabulary. Filipino language is a very deep language and if you don’t understand or can’t pronounce the uncommon Filipino words, it’s definitely a minus point. So for some people who have problems with their tongue, try to consider finding another course or else you will face a lot of humiliation from your students.

I believe that the most important aspect in this course, the thing that will make you survive is your attitude. How much do you love your career? How you treat your fellow education students, your future co-faculties, your future students, and your principal? Education involves a lot of interaction, and you need how to connect with other people effectively if you want to stay long in this field or else you will have a lot of enemy. Lastly, you need patience, and I mean a lot!

list bulletMy current job: I’m currently working as a high school Filipino public teacher at Polo National High School in Valenzuela City.
As a high school Filipino teacher, my job is to teach the students how to speak and write the language properly and with correct grammar. I teach them the importance of our national language Filipino and why they should be proud of it. As a teacher, we are also required to give out short and long quizzes every now and then to test the comprehensiveness of the students. Aside from the quizzes, we are also required to make exams for quarterly examinations. Then we are also the one who will compute for their grades. Computing of grades is something that every teacher should know. Grades must be computed with diligence and caution since parents often rechecked this grades by themselves to see if the computations are correct and that their children receive the correct grade.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Absolutely, since my course is education and we have a specific area of expertise or profession, all that we learned in college will be practical or will be used when we are already employed. This is actually the advantage of having a professional course or a course that requires a licensure exam. Unlike courses that don’t have licensure exams, their choices are very broad and wide. Well for some that is an advantage, but if you’re the type of person who doesn’t really know what he or she wants, it’s going to be quite difficult for you to choose where to apply.

Also the number of competitors or applicants for jobs that don’t require a license is much greater since fresh graduates from different courses may apply. For example there is an opening for a bank teller position. A finance, economics, or management graduate can apply for that specific posting since most banks require only that you are a business graduate. Well going back to what I have learned in college, those are pretty practical knowledge since we focus on how to understand different kind of personalities and to be honest this is a skill or knowledge that we really need in real life. We learned how to deal with different kind of scenarios and to be patient all the time. Being a teacher is practical when you have kids since you no longer need to hire a tutor for your kids.

Everything I do right now is in my curriculum in college. Basically the technical aspect of my course is being used every day like how to compute for grades, how to prepare for a new lesson, and a lot more. This is also one of the good things if your course requires a license since after graduation you know exactly what you will do on your first job. If you are a accountancy graduate and passed the CPA board exam, definitely you know that your first job will be accounting related and that is the same thing with teachers. The hardest part of being a teacher revolves on your personality and attitude and that is something you can’t learned from reading. You need to experience temper and anger in order for you to know how to control your patience, and I can say that my patience was tested several times during college. Trust me you will need a lot of patience when you are already teaching.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Even before I graduated in college, I started to look for potential schools where I can spend my few months before I take my LET exam. Then after a month I land my first job at Blessed Trinity in Las Piñas city.

To be honest, it’s not that easy to find a job if you’re not licensed yet since most schools are increasing the required qualifications. They say before that as long as you have good grades and no bad records, it is easy for you to get hired even though you’re not licensed yet especially in small private schools. Today, some schools not only required that you already have a license, they also require or at least preferred applicants who has Masteral degrees.

After several months in Blessed Trinity, I immediately look for another school that is near in our house since the transport time to Las Piñas is very long and traffic is so heavy. After a month I manage to transfer to Polo National High School in Valenzuela. For my second job, the hiring process was much easier maybe because I already have relevant experience. Experience is one of the most sought after qualification every school wants. The more the experience the better as long as you are gaining a lot of knowledge along the way. Still, perseverance is the key in finding your first job because honestly, nobody wants to hire a newbie or neophyte, but of course in the real world they need to hire the newly grads.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Secondary Education: I would definitely recommend this course if you have passion with public speaking, teaching, and influencing the youth to be better. Being a teacher they say is like a hero. A hero means that you give something even without asking anything in return. Because of that, I maybe not recommending this course if you are looking for a high paying job. Maybe you might consider go to business courses or engineering courses where math is the main subject since math really brings money. I’m not saying that the course education is not financially rewarding, because it is, but compared to some other courses like accountancy, engineering, or economics, maybe the salary grade here is a bit lower. Not to mention if you already have a family which forces you to look for a much higher paying career. Most of the teachers that I have met that has ten or more years of teaching experience told me that they stay longer because they can’t imagine their selves having a different job. Teaching is their passion and that is the main reason why they are still teaching right now even though some of them are really old already. Passion is a very important factor in education because if you are not passionate about teaching, you won’t stay long. I also wanted to point out the fact that the Philippines is having a scarcity for teachers. So maybe the love to your country can make you choose to take up education in college.

Employment wise, there is always a big demand when it comes to teachers because of the very limited supply we are able to produce every year. So this is actually a good opportunity for students who are considering taking this course as their chosen career.

Nonetheless, demand for teachers are still there because education is a necessity, the question is where is the demand? Most remote areas in the Philippines lack teachers mainly because of the location and the salary. But in urban areas like metro manila, there is still a good demand for teachers but you got to stay competitive. One thing is of course to pass the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), another is to continue studying and get Masteral Degree or PhD.

In other countries like Canada, USA, European Countries, and many more, they prefer Filipino teachers because of it's English proficiency and good work ethics. I definitely recommend my course to upcoming college students since being a teacher is a very good career. But if you’re main career goal is to generate more money, then you should remember that in order to do that, you need to climb the ladder. And the ladder here is pretty much slippery because of politics, so you better consider that. Always remember that the demand for teachers will remain as long as education exists, so there is always be an opportunity for education students.

The salary of a public school teacher with full benefits is more than enough if you are single, no dependents, and don’t live beyond your means. But if you already have your own family or a dependent, it might not be sufficient to support all the needs of your family. Not to mention the type of and location of the school where you come from. If you work in a rural area, chances are the salary is much lower compared to the urban area since the cost of living in rural areas are much cheaper. The type of school is also a factor. If you are teaching at an exclusive school, expect to receive a pretty good amount of pay as compared if you are teaching at a small private school inside the town. Nonetheless, if you want to receive a pretty good amount of offer, make sure that you are prepared and make sure that you deserve it before you expect it. In other words, study hard and get good grades, make sure to impress the observers during your practice teaching, and prepare for your first interview first before you assume anything about the salary. But if you think you deserve to get a good salary, I advise you to prioritize teaching in a public school because that

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: If you are planning to take up education as your chosen career you need to ask yourself several questions first before you make any decision.
1. Am I comfortable talking in front of a lot of people?
2. Am I patient enough to handle students at any given situation?
3. Am I too sensitive to gossips and intrigues?
4. Is this is something I want to do for the rest of my life?

Those are just some of the questions you need to consider before you decide to take up education. Not to mention the major of study you are planning to take.
If your answer is YES to all of the questions, and you’re really sure that education is the career you want to pursue then I advise you to listen to your professors attentively all the time, some of the things that your professors might tell you may seem very common and instinctive to you, but to tell you honestly some of the things that will make you successful in this career are thos

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At University Of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: I was eager to learn more about English not just as a language, but as a medium of communication. I wanted to be good of translating words and able to comprehend the origin of such words.

list bulletAbout my college education: Most of our professors were kind and considerate, they tell us when will our quizzes and exam be. But others were also very strict specially our math prof, she would come inside the room and start a surprise long quiz. Because of that many of the students failed and hated it. Slowly I learned to be attentive, study in advance and be always punctual.

list bulletMy current job: I am now a Technical Support Specialist (tier 2) at Convergys Davao. Having a great educational background in English helped me a lot with this kind of work.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Studying in University of Mindanao has taught me that communication is really essential for human rapport. By talking and listening to people you can have a better understanding of them, and with that you earn their respect.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After graduating I had my first job as call center agent at Sutherland global services Inc. 3 months after graduating they called to me for interviewing and screening, luckily I was accepted.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: By being good in English many employments opportunities open for BSED English students. Some could be teachers, supervisors, and even private tutors for foreigners who want to be fluent and learn more about English. The salary level can’t be predicted, it would depend on what work you would have and where. I highly encourage people take this course.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: I advice them to read lots of books and magazine (english to be exact). To be a great BSED English student, he/she must be very good in conversations, reporting, and debates. He/she must be very clear and fluent in English.

◈ Studied BSEd in Social Studies
◈ At University Of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 1995

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in Social Studies: 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?

list bulletAbout 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.

list bulletMy current job: I'm a Social Studies teacher.
I'm teaching high school students about geographies and history in a prestigious private school.

list bulletAm 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.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After passing the board and getting a licence. I became a trainee before I become stable, so, maybe 8 months.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd 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.

list bulletAdvice 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.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Philippine Normal University
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletAbout my college education: It was difficult. You would come to understand that being a teacher is one of the most difficult things to do; but when you get to do what you really want, you would end up enjoying what you feel you are born to do. It was challenging in a way that you are dealing with different kinds of children and you need to understand them. You need to think of a way on how to make them learn from you.
The key to success is to take everything as a challenge from the God who loves you. In this way, whatever happens, you know that He will never let you down especially if you trust His plans because more than anyone He knows what's best for you. Almost every skill is needed in order to succeed in this course since a teacher should always be flexible; but most of all, what is important is to pray hard.

list bulletMy current job: Teacher

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Of course. Since all our pedagogical subjects are composed of what we should do before becoming a teacher, we have truly made a good use of the knowledge and techniques we have covered.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: One month

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: Yes, since teaching is a very fulfilling job and it will never be outdated.

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: To change the future via teaching and molding one to be a better individual that could efficiently contribute to the developing society and changing world.

list bulletAbout my college education: This kind of course is quite difficult but interesting. It is because it requires one's full dedication to the program and implore oneself in the process. Also, one must be a learner to be a good teacher, one that can empathize the needs of a learner and the kind of approach or method that one can introduce to enforce learning process. One must also obtain perseverance in order to overcome the trials on becoming an efficient agent of change.

◈ Studied BSEd in Mathematics
◈ At St. Joseph College Of Bulacan
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in Mathematics: I chose this course because Mathematics is something I've loved all my life. I know I'd be able to impart the knowledge I've gained and honed through all the years of my study to the students that I'll be meeting in the future.

list bulletAbout my college education: The course itself is very interesting and enjoyable. Future teachers get to understand how the education system and the learning process works according to theories and from personal experiences.

I think that the attitude/trait needed to succeed in this course is the love for three things: The love for the students, the love for the subject, and the love for lifelong learning.

list bulletMy current job: My current job is a Math Teacher.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, they were practical. The theories; especially the learning and developmental theories, and my 1 year OJT experience helped me cope with the challenges I face in my current job.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It did not take much time. The school in which I took my On-the-Job training absorbed me into their faculty after graduation.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in Mathematics: I would recommend it in terms of employment opportunities and as a career but not for the salary level.
The employment opportunities for teachers are currently huge especially with the introduction of K-12 program in our educational system. Several schools would be needing more man power with the addition of 3 levels (Kindergarten, 11th, and 12th grade) of mandatory education in the system.

The only downside of teaching is the Salary level, but it is not something to think about. Because as I said, Teaching is Public Service, money is not something you think about when you engage in teaching; the principal consideration you should take is the readiness to sacrifice something for the good of the community.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Just love the course and everything would just come together smoothly. Taking an education course is a service to the public, if they're not ready to serve the community, I would advise them not to take the course.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At University Of The Philippines Diliman
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletAbout my college education: Let me start by saying that ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to be a teacher; hence, choosing Education as my course is a realization of that dream. The four years that I spent finishing my degree is one great journey - a roller coaster ride for me. I got to feel all emotions; I had my share of both good and bad moments. There were times when I felt victorious after finishing a lesson plan or getting through a demonstration teaching. There were times when I got afraid on whether I did my job well, especially when I was having my practicum. There were even moments when I tended to doubt whether I'm really capable of pursuing teaching as a career. But at the end of the day, the mere thought of being able to shape someone else's future in my hands brought unsurpassed joy and fulfillment in my heart. Seeing your students learn from you and finding out that you manage to bring a difference in their life is more than enough compensation for sleepless nights and tedious preparations of lesson plans and visual aids.

Teaching requires a lot of heart and passion. In my case, I almost gave up, but I did not because I know how noble the path I've taken is. More than extensive knowledge of the subject that you're going to teach, more than being adept with the various teaching strategies, being a teacher requires a lot of hard work, patience, patience, and patience especially if you encounter "problematic" students, problem solving skills, creativity and resourcefulness, interpersonal skills to be able to reach out to your students and colleagues, and determination. Unless you're really passionate about teaching, you will not become an efficient teacher.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working as a college instructor.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Let me put it in few words, I can say that I apply every learning and skill that I acquired from studying in UP to my profession now. More than the factual knowledge that I impart to my students and the teaching strategies that I use, I am able to apply in my profession, the values that I developed in UP.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I am grateful because I landed a teaching job soon after I graduated. I graduated in April 2009, then I started working in June 2009.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: I would recommend to younger generations to choose Education as a course if and only if they really are passionate about teaching. As they say, you cannot give what you do not have, so how can you selflessly devote yourself to this profession, if in the first place, you really do not have the heart for it?

In terms of employment opportunities, yes, there are lots of employment opportunities in this profession because as long as there are children born, we need teachers.

As what everybody is aware of, teaching, especially here in the Philippines, does not guarantee high salary. Teachers are actually poorly-compensated in the country. However, more than the money, teaching will give you a kind of satisfaction that is incomparable. To be able to make your students learn, to be able to help them achieve their dreams and realize their potentials, to be able to mold their minds and characters, to be able to touch and cause difference in their lives, and to be able to shape the country's future in your hands, aren't these more than enough?

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Bulacan State University
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: Teaching has always been my dream.

list bulletAbout my college education: The difficult part was merely memorization of the names and dates with regard to literature since I think those are not used in real life scenarios. The most enjoyable and interesting ones are the writing part and grammar (though grammar was not given much priority in our school, or I should say hasn't been given... Cause until now, grammar hasn't been taught thoroughly. In writing, students are given a chance to express their ideas.

list bulletMy current job: Curriculum Developer/ Grammar Trainer - I basically write grammar books and train teachers intensive grammar. I also evaluate teachers and students and make exams and other materials.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Not really. Because in college, we focused on literature, but of course since I teach English, I was able to use the language itself.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: As soon as I graduated (the next day after the graduation), I was able to start as a teacher first, then as a trainer and as my position now, in the same university

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: There are a lot of opportunities for English majors since a lot of jobs require fluency in the said language, but like what I've said, money wise, it's not that good, but the fulfillment you feel whenever you share your knowledge is incomparable.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Don't choose BSED if you're not into teaching. Teaching is really a passion. Not much money is given, but the fulfillment when your students improve is simply indescribable. As for English, any way any major, just put your heart in it and enjoy every thing you can learn.

◈ Studied BSEd in English
◈ At Notre Dame University
◈ Graduated 2011

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.
