Biography

I grew up in the Philippines. I worked as a grade school mathematics teacher, school principal and assistant professor prior to coming to United States in 2003 to work for Indiana University Southeast.

I believe teaching occurs only when learning takes place. The best form of learning happens when a student is an active individual who seeks and hungers for knowledge. The teacher serves as a facilitator of learning who engages the students in the processes of critical thinking, problem solving and reflective evaluation of issues in the discipline of study.

The proverb, “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” best illustrates my goal in teaching.   I encourage my students to take charge of their own learning and be self-regulated individuals who engage themselves in continuous growth. A self-regulated individual is one who monitors, plans and evaluates her/his own learning, therefore achieves a sense of autonomy for learning. I aspire to help my students to systematically focus their thoughts, feelings, and actions on the attainment of their goals. I also adhere to the humanistic principles of helping students to achieve something great and to strive for excellence.
