The Catanduanes State University (CatSU) beams with pride as a College of Education student bagged an award at the recently concluded Regional Virtual Demonstration Teaching contest.
Mhar Ariz T. Marino, a graduating student of BSEd-Mathematics 4E, landed 2nd place in one of the significant events in the celebration of Bicol University College of Education’s 100th Year Founding Anniversary on December 6-10, 2021.
The conduct of the Regional Virtual Demonstration Teaching Contest was held on November 26, 2021 and was participated by various Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in the region, with the aim of promoting and exhibiting the exemplary teaching practices of the Pre-Service teachers who play a crucial role in the development of quality education for the next generation of learners.
Marino said that he wanted to include a sign language interpretation to the final video or other techniques to make the video as inclusive as possible. “Time constraints and inadequate technical help were one of the challenges that I have had in the process, nonetheless, I was inspired to pursue the goal, and that is to finish victoriously and bring pride and honor to the university”, he quipped.
When asked what his greatest inspiration was, he answered that it is “the dream of a pre-service teacher to provide the BEST possible learning experience for the learners. I want to realize that dream of making an efficient learning environment for our children. I viewed the opportunity as a stepping stone for my future dreams in the field of education in Catanduanes. One of my dreams is to model an inclusive virtual or F2F classroom for our learners. I also foresee 100% efficiency for learners to master their topics by giving them the best teaching practices possible. We, the next breed of pre-service teachers, have to be fully prepared for the 21st century challenges we face".
“I am hoping that opportunities for post-graduate degrees offering special and inclusive education can be connected to the graduates of CatSU-CoEd and would come into fruition through the platform I have”, he added.
Marino was mentored by no less than the Dean of College of Education, Prof. Eric Evangelista. He also extended his gratitude to CatSU SUC President, Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza, for articulating his holistic support for the students. “Thank you so much for inspiring us to become excellent versions of ourselves as the new breed of professionals”, he ended.
Truly, he is a pride of the College of Education. Indeed, in spite of the worldwide health crisis brought by this Covid-19 pandemic, CatSU can still emerge as a winner. #CVecilles
