Six CTU-Naga alumni passed the January 2022 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).
Irene L. Ababa, Dondon L. Caburnay, Marlon C. Caca, Ivy R. Cortez, Gesucamo C. Manubag, and Rodel A. Pacifico were among those who have successfully hurdled the exam bringing more pride to the university.
Instead of taking the March 2020 exam, which was postponed owing to the pandemic, candidates had to wait two years for the LET.
These aspiring teachers never stopped researching and reviewing, although three LETs have already been postponed due to the COVID-19 restriction of COVID-19.
The Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET, LEPT, or BLEPT) was divided into four (4) batches pursuant to Resolution No. 1363 (s. 2021), stating that there is a large number of examinees for LEPT 2021 and thus prompting a need to divide the examinees into batches to comply with the established health protocols.
“Reviewing for the LET was not an easy task. I am always optimistic about any goal in my life,” Cortez said in an interview. “I would always say that I can make it so that positive energy would pave the way to my success,” Manubag added. “Our success does not depend on luck but by working hard to achieve what we aim for.”
When asked about his plans, Pacifico stated, “Teachers must also hold credentials and experiences that would demonstrate the ability to manage the profession’s demands.” “I intend to teach at the DepEd Senior High School department and consider teaching abroad,” he added.
Passing the LET and being able to call themselves teachers by profession is the ultimate dream for prospective teachers. A future teacher’s aptitude for greatness is demonstrated by hard work and passing the LET.
Everyone who chooses to become a teacher feels compelled to do so. Teaching is a lot more than just passing on information and mentoring students.
