They say that the school is our second home and our teachers are our second parents. Thus, we find a family inside our school. Jerome Peñamente found a home in the National Teachers College, where he found a family who accepted and nurtured him to become a better version of himself.
Jerome took up a Bachelor of Science in Office Administration in NTC because he saw that he would be victorious in the corporate world. He was also confident in what NTC could provide for him during that time.
According to Jerome, “NTC taught me how to be humane. The institution taught me how to be compassionate and be dedicated to what I do. NTC didn’t disappoint to provide and hone my skills and knowledge to achieve my dreams.”
The way that NTC supported student leaders paved the way for him to be where he is right now. Jerome is currently the SK Chairperson of Brgy. Ungos Real, Quezon. Without his experiences as Junior Association of Office Administrators (JAOA) Club President and Philippine Association of Students in Office Administration (PASOA) National President, he would not learn to be a good servant leader to his constituents and community.
“I am very thankful to my adviser and mentors: our dean and program head and club advisers, who became my second parents. and, of course, to NTC’s late President, Dr. Pricilla Y. Arguelles. I cannot forget the words she told me, “Show them how NTCian leads.” said Jerome.
With what he learned in NTC, Jerome was able to apply it to his vocation as a public servant. He was inspired every day to work hard and be a better version of himself for the people he serves.
“I am what I am today because of Tanglaw. Being an alumnus of NTC made me the Tanglaw, the bright, shining light to my constituents in our pursuit for a better future.” Jerome said.
Indeed, National Teachers College had not been merely an educational institution. It is a home for students who at first are scared of many things, particularly to leap with faith. In NTC, Jerome found acceptance and belongingness, which helped him to be who he is now.
