Personal Summary

I am an international teacher originally from the Philippines. I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Biology in March 1997 from Universidad de Nueva Caceres. I have completed all academic requirements of the Masters of Education major in Special Education in March 2011 from De La Salle University.

I have 20 years of teaching experience across levels in most diverse groups of students both locally and internationally. I have taught in the Philippines for about 10 years before I decided to pursue an international teaching career abroad. I have lived and taught in the United States for 6 years. In all those years, I handled 8th Grade, Science classes. I was able to attend training and workshops that helped me become more innovative in teaching. I have recently finished a 3-year teaching stint in Indonesia handling grades 1-4 using IB-PYP curriculum.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you in person my ideas and qualifications. If you have any questions or would like to arrange an interview with me, I may be reached at +63.921.501.0854, or or
