FAQs


Every year, I get numerous requests for an online interview regarding my work as an international educator. Often, these requests come from education students back home who are tasked to create a portfolio of Filipino educators who have received recognition domestically and internationally. To help facilitate said requests, I have prepared below my answer to each of the frequently asked questions. 

Q: What is your view regarding teaching?
A: If you feel that you have what it takes to teach, grab it. Teaching is a gift. It is a gift of sharing. When shared with others, it does not diminish, but multiplies tenfold instead, more than you'll ever know. 


Q: As an educator, what is your philosophy?

A: My philosophy in teaching has changed over the years. As a migrant educator, my philosophy is now tied to the migrant work context I am in. As such, I believe in borderless education that does not recognize differences between and among races, cultures, nationalities and genders. I believe that education should be had regardless of one's orientation and that education can be provided by anyone regardless of color, race and gender.

Q: What are your strategies, pedagogies, and approaches in dealing with diverse 21st century students?
A: To cope with the 21st-century demands on one's teaching, I actively engage in flipped learning. That is, to be competitive, I need to exhaust the available resources that my students are exposed to. Times have changed. How I learned during my time as a student is no longer applicable at all times. By engaging in flipped learning, I actively use new media/ technology because they offer teachers an advantage not only in presenting a lesson but also in digging information that's just within the fingertips.

Q: What makes a global teacher?

A: A global teacher is one who cares to educate anyone regardless of race, culture, gender, nationality, and other border differences. 


Q: What are the skills, knowledge, and values Filipino teachers must have when they go abroad?

A: Going abroad to teach requires confronting one's self with socio-cultural issues. It means having a solid understanding of and deep appreciation for the need to help other people get educated regardless of social, cultural, political, and economic differences. One has to go beyond who he/ she is as a Filipino because in reality, and as what my personal tagline is as stated in my site, teaching should know no barriers.
