From being Students to Nation's Tanglaw - National Teachers College

From being Students to Nation's Tanglaw

Have you ever wondered if the path you have chosen is right for you? Some of us would say yes, and some would say no. Despite being hesitant, we still pursue it until we realize that we want something different, and often it is our school that helped us realize it. 

The National Teachers College helps students to ignite their passion and ambition just like in the case of Mary Grace Docdocos, Junel Yves Macapagal, Andrew Lawrence Jose, and Vallerie Jane Gallevo.

When they were studying in NTC, they had different courses. As students, they know that they should embody being a Tanglaw, but it was ambiguous for them. 

According to Junel, “Lumipat ako ng IT sa NTC pero sa totoo lang hindi ko ma-visualize kung magiging ano ako sa hinaharap. Naguguluhan din ako pero habang nasa IT ako, sabi ko sa sarili ko, go with the flow muna ako kung saan ako dadalhin ng desisyong ito. Then noong 3rd year ako narealize ko na magpupulis ako.”

While Mary Grace recalled, “noong pumasok ako sa NTC, ang goal ko lang is yung mag-enjoy while studying, but staying in NTC and being a Psychology student, paunti-unti I realized na I have a dream to achieve that is why I am here. From a Psychology student to a licensed Psychometrician. Then a licensed Professional teacher, and now a proud member of blue-uniformed personnel, a patrolwoman.”

Vallerie also said, “Switching profession from being a teacher to policewoman wasn’t an easy decision. I studied at NTC for four years as an education student, and it made me realize that my calling in life is to be a public servant. Educating the kids, giving information, communicating with parents, and many more which are the same responsibility as a police officer. “

Their journey in NTC helped them to realize their calling, to be a Tanglaw of our nation. That was why right after their graduation, they applied to our Philippine National Police. 

According to Andrew, “Mahirap mag-apply sa sa PNP, kailangan matiyaga ka at higit sa lahat magastos dahil maraming requirements pero dahil galing akong NTC kung saan tinuruan kaming maging resourceful and of course matiyaga. Natupad ko yung pangarap ko.”

Similarly, Mary Grace said, “NTC is my Tanglaw who shaped my character, honed my skills, and saw my potential. NTC also motivates me to do and give more which helps me to be where I am. NTC always has a special place in my heart, and I will be forever grateful.”

Vallerie was grateful to NTC, and she said, “I proudly say that my beloved school helped me a lot to mold and strengthen me for who I am today.”

The National Teachers College always develops students’ skills and characters as they get to know themselves and reach for their goals.   Besides, NTC was not only an institution where students learn. It serves as their guide and support as they journey to fulfill their purpose to serve the nation. 

Mary Grace, Valerie, Junel, and Andrew uphold being a Tanglaw. They are creating change in our country, and they are responsive to the call of the Republic of the Philippines. Thus, the National Teachers College always produces light-bears with excellence, competency, and integrity to serve our country. 

NTC, a premier institution under a Yuchengco-Ayala educational partnership, ensures that Filipinos will have access to quality education at a reasonable cost.

NTC Partnered with experts in remote learning to ensure the effective delivery of its remote learning. These include: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)-JWEL who works with member organizations to promote excellence and transformation in education to address global opportunities for scalable change in education; Mapua University, one of the pioneers in distance learning, has been continuously improving learning connectivity online even before ECQ; Derrick Latrielle ran learning and development operations for blue-chip technology, telecommunications, and BPO companies operating around the world, especially in South America and Southeast Asia; and, Dr. Edizon Fermin is a member of CHED’s Technical Working Group on Remote Learning.

NTC’s learning continuity plan is clear: stay safe at home and learn meaningfully with assistance from our responsive remote staff, either through calls, texts, social media messages, or emails. The world may have changed drastically, but NTC’s commitment to providing accessible and quality education remains steadfast.
