3rd time’s the charm, but the 25th time is a blessing.
Teacher Gennie Victoria Panguelo went viral after she shared her story of passing the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) after 25 tries in 2016. She shared how she jumped, screamed, and cried with joy when she saw her name as one of the LET passers. She also expressed that she was able to achieve her dreams of getting a license after how many years of trying.
Teacher Gennie has since continued to work even harder for her goals and dreams, not only for herself but also for the Aeta community. Even if she already passed the LET, the Aeta teacher persevered yet again and continued her studies.
Panguelo holds a Master’s Degree in Filipino from the University of St. Lasalle Bacolod in 2013. And she did not stop there; she now earned a Ph.D. in Teaching and Management.
Teacher Gennie is not only an inspiration for his students, but she is also the motivation of her fellow teachers to keep reaching for more careers. She also inspires other teachers who failed the LET to strive hard and not give up on their goals.
“Sa mga kagaya ko na minsan nangarap na makamit ang lisensya sa pamamagitan ng pagsusulit na LET, magtiwala tayo sa Diyos dahil Siya lang ang nakakaalam ng lahat. Kung kayo ay magre-review, bigyan niyo ng panahon, maging sinsero, at magkaroon ng tiwala sa sariling kakayahan. Kung nabigo man sa unang pagkakataon, sumubok muli. Subok nang subok hanggang sa magtagumpay. Higit sa lahat isuko at magtiwala sa Poong Maykapal”,She stated.”
Teacher Gennie is the epitome of hard work. She experienced many failures but did not let them stop her from getting what she had always dreamed of. Kudos to you, Teacher Gennie.
