The past five months had been the most daunting for me as far as my professional life is concerned. In fact, I was so scared of failing the board exam that up until a few days before the test, I considered not even showing up at all. But He never left me. He gave me the courage to keep on battling despite the challenges – even at my lowest points. Indeed, in all things, You shall be glorified.
Also, I’d like to thank Mama. Throughout the challenges I faced this year – not getting renewed by DepEd QC, health issues, etc., you were there silently giving me support. It is my heart’s eternal desire to always make you happy and proud.
At this point, I would like to thank those people who helped me through this journey. First, my great mentors at the Technological Institute of the Philippines-Quezon City who guided me last school year when I was enrolled in their Teaching Certificate Program (TCP): Dr. Brenda Corpuz (Dean, College of Education), Dr. Arcillas Joy (Dean, College of Arts), and Sir Jorge Lituanias Mayordomo. Of course, a shout-out too to Mr. John Pete Sarabia, the school’s registrar, for helping me with my transcript. This won’t be possible without you all, and for that, I’ll forever be grateful.
Virtual hugs too for my former DepEd colleagues who have been with me through the difficult last six months, Majocelyn Enriquez, Patricia Sajorda, and Corina Rivera Verdon, as well as my former TCP classmates Maylene Baban, Carla Mae Valdez Leano, and Teresa Tecson. You made this tough journey so much more fun!
