As secondary teacher, I am exposed to different levels of learners. When I was assigned at private school, my alma mater, I was teaching English, PEHM, and SOS from second year to fourth year level learners.

At hinterland school, I was teaching my students the subjects such as English, MAPEH, Filipino and SOS in all year levels of secondary education.

At present I am teaching first to third year students in subjects like English, Creative Writing 1 to 4 and remediation for Children with Special Needs.

I am also teaching my part time job as college instructor at BSU.

Public School, Private School, or Both?

Teaching both public and private schools is a real experience molding me into a seasoned mentor in my time for those students who have thirst and slow in learning . Both schools taught me the essence of being a teacher.
