Future teachers take the challenge of practice teaching

To embrace the noblest profession in the world, more than 250 fourth-year students from the College of Teacher Education of the Zamboanga Peninsula Polytechnic State University (ZPPSU) committed to be professional Pre-Service Teachers during the pinning ceremony held at the Grand Astoria Hotel, February 1.

With their proud parents and special loved ones, the aspiring teachers slowly walked in the aisle with so much hope and pride that finally, one of their million dreams would be soon fulfilled.

91 students from the Bachelor of Technical Vocational Teacher Education (BTVTED), 66 from the Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED), 41 from the Bachelor of Physical Education (BPED), 49 from the Bachelor of Technology and Livelihood Education (BTLED), and 31 from the Bachelor of Secondary Education in Mathematics (BSED-Math) were officially pinned.

CTE Dean Dr. Rolando Malalay has emphasized the importance of pinning ceremony — to oversee the successful transition of students to practice teachers.

“The university is ready to help shape the professional life of our teachers and prepare them to take the challenges on educational paradigms,” Dr. Malalay said.

The pinned ZPPSU educators are expected to have their internship program during the 2nd semester this year in different esteemed primary and secondary schools in Zamboanga City.

Present during the event were ZPPSU VP for Academic Affairs Dr. Roy Valesco, VP for Student Affairs and Services Dr. Ma. Christina Wee, CTE faculty staff, and other university officials.
