Let me start by saying, "I have no education background, but I have the heart and the passion for teaching". I have been a teacher for six years already, and most of my students are different foreign individuals. I have had a teaching experience with French people, Japanese people, Chinese and Koreans, and I have always thought that I was good. Most of my students would tell me, “Oh, you’re a good teacher. I enjoyed your class. I love listening to you. I love talking to you." Until one time, I realized that I ran out of activities. I ran out of teaching materials for my students. And then I said to myself, "I was not good enough. There is always room for improvement." That is, actually, the reason why I took up TESOL, and I was lucky enough to have in this company and to have been under the class of Miss Jan Medina. It was a wonderful learning experience, and I realized that I need to take a step to become a better teacher. I have learned that I need to prepare very well. I need to learn how to make my own lesson materials, and I have accomplished it. I am very satisfied.
I would like to thank three individuals, groups of people for this experience. I would like to thank the Lord for the wonderful opportunity of learning that he has given us, for the skills and talents that he has showered upon us, and for the opportunity of sharing what we have learned to other people. I also would like to thank these people in front of me who became my friends and I know who would stay for a lifetime. And lastly, I’d like to thank, ofcourse, Pacesetters. And before I end this testimony, I would like to leave you a statement: "There is no end to learning. A good teacher has the skills, the capability, the talents, and the passion for teaching. But always remember that, the best teacher is someone who never stops learning." So thank you Pacesetters for guiding us toward having this huge step to become the best teachers that we can be.
