“[Since what year pa] po kayo nagtuturo?”

“Since 1993.” 

“Anong fulfillment po ‘yung narereceive mo [from teaching]?”

“Fulfillment is when I see what we call in the corporate world the ‘aha moments.’ Aha moment is when you’re able to help them understand something. [I] see that I’m directly helping them shape their behavior, shape their mindset, shape a lot of things about them. [I]t’s challenging, but that’s the fulfillment. It’s when they look back or come back and say ‘Ay teacher ko yan.’”

“Ano po yung pinaka-memorable moment sa pagtuturo mo po dito sa AB?”

“Every day.”

“If you will describe your experience in teaching using one word, anong word ‘yung gagamitin mo and why?”

“Fulfilling. [D]espite the opportunities I have in the corporate word, I never gave up teaching. I’ve gotten so many offers but if the offer will impinge on my teaching, I’ll give it up.”
