My Brother is Now a Public School Teacher!

“All our dreams can come true,
if we have the courage to pursue them.”
~Walt Disney

Allow me to be a proud sister for a day. I’m just sooooo happy and swelling with pride and gratitude because my 26-year old brother has finally realized his dream of becoming a public school teacher. He is now a certified TLE-VOC teacher at a public high school here in Manila. God is truly great!

Prior to this development, he was a computer teacher at Philippine Tiong Se Academy in Divisoria. He worked there for almost four years in preparation for this important career goal. He formally applied for a teaching position at DepEd in February of this year, passed the rigorous mandatory ranking procedures sometime in May, got called in to submit his pre-employment requirements last week of June, and got deployed to his assigned school yesterday. Yes, it’s his first day at work yesterday and everyone in the family was very excited for him!

I know this is just the start of his journey as a public school teacher and he still has a lot of things to do to prove his worth. But I am confident my brother can live up to the expectations of the people around him. He’s passionate and hardworking and he’s been so lucky ever since he was born (but this trivia deserves a separate post of its own). I just wish he doesn’t forget us when he receives his first salary. Hahaha. 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

  1. Congrats to your brother Edel!! I took BS Education too pero hindi ko natapos. =( Hoping I could finish college before I die. hehehe!

    1. Salamat! Oo naman Jen, kaya mo yan, basta gawin mo. Take that big, bold, first step and from there, it will go on na. You know, I have officemates who were able to continue their studies and eventually earn a degree while working (they need a degree to get a promotion!). Dapat daw may goal para mas mamotivate, hehe. 🙂

  2. Congrats to your brother and the proud family!!

    It’s funny how people tend to look down at the teaching profession, but chances are when you ask someone who has made a big impact in his/her life, the answer will almost always be a teacher.

    Good luck to your bro, may he touch lives and hearts throughout his teaching career.

    1. True! My brother has always wanted to be a public school teacher and he’s living that dream now. Thank you, Jill! 🙂
