Asian Journal is the leading newspaper in the US which brings news about the Filipinos in the US. Huge thanks to Ms. Agnes Constante for highlighting my work as a teacher here in Barstow, California.

Being a teacher was not I aspire to be when I was growing up. Math had been my waterloo ever since I can remember and one of the traumatizing experiences I had in high school was presenting my project in front of the class. The signs were pretty obvious that I was not destined in a profession which involves number and speaking. I was convinced back then that I will never be a math teacher.

Looking back on the struggles that I had as a student, I still don’t know how I got this far in this profession. It’s undeniable that I was not a brilliant mathematician nor a passionate aspiring teacher back then. I was not a Tiffany Uy (GWA 1.004) or a John Gabriel Pelias (GWA 1.016) who graduated summa cum laude with the highest GPA in their respective class. What I knew at that time was there’s a tiny little voice, telling me that someday, I could be a rockstar!
