READY FOR THE MIS­SION

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

JOSEPH IAN TIZON QUIAMBAO

Teach­ing is not just a pro­fes­sion; it is a mis­sion and a call­ing from God. In Matthew 22:14, it is stated that “Many are called but few are cho­sen”. Every­one has the ca­pa­bil­ity to teach and in­spire, but only few have the courage to say yes in this life­time mis­sion. Teach­ing is the no­blest pro­fes­sion. It is the pro­fes­sion that cre­ates all other pro­fes­sions. Once we have en­tered into the teach­ing pro­fes­sion, we are al­ready ded­i­cat­ing our lives to serve our stu­dents, coun­try and God.

Dur­ing my Pre-Ser­vice Ed­u­ca­tion, Bu­la­can State Univer­sity has pre­pared me for the mis­sion. The BSED pro­gram of the Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion en­hanced my abil­i­ties and teach­ing skills. It has pro­vided me not only knowl­edge but also the right at­ti­tude and val­ues re­quired for me to em­brace my mis­sion with pas­sion, com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion. With this I would like to thank my men­tors who have been in­stru­men­tal for my for­ma­tion and prepa­ra­tion in my mis­sion. I would like to ex­press my grat­i­tude to Dr. Re­nato DL. Godoy and Dr. Ros­alina Jo­son, my pro­fes­sors in Filipino who have made me master my spe­cial­iza­tion and there­fore have pre­pared me to be an ef­fec­tive teacher of the Filipino lan­guage. San Ma­tias Na­tional High School was also a part of my for­ma­tion as a fu­ture teacher. It was where I had ex­pe­ri­enced the love and joy of my vo­ca­tion dur­ing my prac­tice-teach­ing. I would like to men­tion the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion of my co­op­er­at­ing teacher, Sir Efraim C. Men­doza, who had in­spired me for be­ing an ef­fec­tive fa­cil­i­ta­tor of learn­ing and a nur­tur­ing teacher. The tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance and in­spi­ra­tion given to me dur­ing my en­tire jour­ney as a stu­dent teacher by my De­part­ment Head in Filipino at SMNHS, Ma’am An­abell U. Sa­pao, were also vi­tal in my pre-ser­vice for­ma­tion. Salute to the Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion headed by our Dean. Dr Ruben E. Borja II, for its pro­grams that have made us re­al­ize BulSu’s Mis­sion “to pro­duce highly com­pe­tent, eth­i­cal and ser­vice-ori­ented pro­fes­sion­als.” There­fore we can proudly say that we are now ready to teach the 21st Cen­tury learn­ers. Fi­nally, I would like thank my first teacher, my mother, ASDS Rowena T. Quiambao. She is the epit­ome of a good and great teacher and leader. The in­spi­ra­tion and sup­port that she has been shar­ing with me lit the fire in my heart to be­come a good ser­vant-teacher.

To­day, I am now armed with the nec­es­sary knowl­edge, skills, com­pe­ten­cies, and val­ues needed in the per­for­mance of my func­tion as a teacher. I can truly say that I am now FIT and RIGHT for the teach­ing vo­ca­tion. I thank God for call­ing and choos­ing me to serve the mis­sion.
