2. What were your motivations in pursuing your current job as a guidance counselor?

Ever since kasi I wanted to work talaga sa acadim or sa clinical setting. Aah since the
first job that I had sa Colegio de San Agustin, Na-appreciate ko naman kasi naka
faculty status I also got to teach pero guiadance ano homeroom guiadance every
month. Sa CSA kasi medyo malaki ang population, so in 1 batch 500 so that’s 11
sections. So parang dami mo rin tinuturuan pero it’s non graded. So since nag
guiadance ako dun edi dere deretso na. Nagboard exam din naman ako as teacher kasi
that time wala pang RGC and private schools required lahat nang counselors sa
higschools at elementary mag board exam for teachers. So I took the LET 2003. I
took me some time to take the LET kasi psych major ako I had to take one subject.
Actually I was asked to take yung CPP pero I just took the needed subjects and doon
lang ako na allowed mag board exam which is 2003. So nag aral muna ako. Masaya
naman kasi sa job as a counselor na pursue ko naman na. Should I say this, there
came a time I grew tired, syempre minsan ang hirap din nang ano sabihin mo naman
na professional ka dapat di mo inaabsorb pero nung tumanda tanda ako although it’s
part of our development na mag dedecline yung health mo, pero the first time I had
asthma as in respiratory when I was 27 and skin asthma is 25. Sinabi lang ng doctor
na lahat yan ay stress induce. So talaga ano, syempre ang hirap din talaga, minsan
gusto mo magalit. Ang training samin sa CSA, since counselor ka and you’re
teaching pag magulo ang bata you won’t stop para pagalitan yung bata or magsermon
ka. Contain mo yun kahit feeling mo nabastos ka tapos galit na galit ka you have to
contain. Lalapitan mo lang talaga and call the attention. And it’s part of the job. And
it’s difficult from somebody na and for everybody naman na nasa peak ka ng negative
emotion mo pero you have to curve it kasi you have to be professional. Kaya I think
ang nagging manifestation sakin nang stress is through sickness. There was a time I
stop counseling for a year, I resigned from my job, rested for 1 year, i-enjoy ko lang.

Di kasi ako ginising. I wanted to work naman kaso nga malakas lang ang loob ko na mag rest for 1 year. Nagtampo ako nun a proctor. guidance and counseling. 3. Imagine I tuturo mo. So I work half a semester lang. to worked again. So I was working then for 10 years na ata Yah I think. So days before the RGC exam. Lahat yun ako nag tuturo nun. So mag board exam kayo makes sure You have enough time to really review and enough rest. What are the tips you can share with us in taking the board exam? Kasi nakwento ko na sa kanila. Nakakahiya! Ayun na continue ko yung pagiging counselor. When I was taking the review in assumption. I was teaching remember I thaught nga in college. If review center work for you go ahead. I wanted to ano. general psych tapos principles of teaching. naka short tapos naka shirt. luto lang ako. I was ask to take guidance and counseling kasi hindi sya credited para makakuha ka ng RGC so I had to study again. may research pa ko. I think that would suffice. I was doing the test. but when I was about to do my thesis. Nag hotel pa ko nun kasi nga sabi ko gusto ko magreview pero hindi rin kasi I was so focus in teaching pero kasi on the actual exam. Dun nag tuloy tuloy yung history ko for the last 16 years kaya ako counselor. Nagturo lang ako sa college in another school. I think I attended 2 sessions lang ata. I think midterms nila. Actually nag ano ako. nag take ako nang clinical counseling. So siguro nga be rested a day before or night before wag ka na masyado mag cram. I suppose may nag retain naman. No a semester lang half a year that’s good for six months. Arbee may ginagawa ka ba? So I say na kakaresign lang ako. so I was able to send myself to Grad school. Kasi I was busy kasi ako nga lang nagtuturo. so that time na mag board exam. ^ sections ata yun . I resigned then I went here dinalaw ko lang yung mga mentors ko. 10 years I did what I wanted. Dami ko kasing load sa college. Sabi sakin. I fell asleep. This what happen. Tapos yung gusto niyo talaga mag review. Basta sineryoso mo yung klase hindi yung parang makakuha lang nang passing. Dalawa kasi kinuha kong course for masteral. Siguro kasi in CSA kasi medyo Malaki yung salary. it is just that that here in PNU wala silang item for counselor so ang item ko dito ay faculty. Meron ako non-teaching loadna one empty load kasi is 8 hours so meron akong dalawa. Naka-tsinelas lang ako as in naka flip flops lang ako. Tagal ko natulog mga 15 mins. Kaya nga medyo napagod din ako. siguro naman na experience niyo yung pinipilit niyo lang mag review tapos all the more wala kang maabsord all the . Imagine nag aral ka dalawang beses for Masters tapos nag board exam ka. clinical psych. nakatulog ako nung board exam. I was able to sustain my lifestyle naman for 1 year pero sabi ko hindi mahirap din nasa bahay ka. When I felt na sige ok na. mag stay lang sa house. it’s around 8:30 in the morning and hindi ako ginising. Basta naman nag study well ka nung college tapos nag review ka. sige pumunta ka doon sa ITL nag hahanap sila nang counselor dumaan lang ako yun pala interview na. OO! Nag aral ako. I had to prepare 680 items na multiple choice na midterm exam. Nag aral ako. Sinabi sakin. So that 16 so nadagdagan. Travel.

And. Most of them nasa Internet na. Kasi before that yung boss ko. Sabi ko saying naman po yung mga nag aaral nang guidance and nag aaral nang psychology tapos mag masteral pa. yung guidelines. Tapos dala nang pagkain kasi magugutom ka talaga. I remember yung ka batch ko na nag top 1. You buy the book of Ortigas kasi I think nandun siya eh. Kasi may aalagaan ka eh. “ Puwede na magka license basta matagal ka ng teacher na naghandle ng guidance”. 5. Paano yun? Di puwede sa batas yun. That’s very unfair. I was debating with two people regarding that they were saying. Kasi I think board exam is not just a test of knowledge. kasi ako nung may licence ako mas nagging maingat ako the . Sabi ko hindi dahil mahirap yun madami magagalit. tapos kung kelan ako nag counselor tsaka ako nag take nang exam na pang counselor ibig sabihin ginusto ko na. Tapos even yung stages. I think Doctor Fulcencio required that book. you really get to say na you’re really a professional. Kaya nga dapat ginusto mo din mag board exam kundi that will be a burden. The RGC is just a license na for you to get yourself better. gaya nang mga friends ko nag take din nag room to room nang pagkain kasi magugutom ka. So if were trying to professionalize the profession bakit bigla ganun. endurance test eh hangang saan mo kaya. So make sure na you like to take the board. Tulad ko. Diba K-12 itself is a law and RGC on itself is a law. yung tao involve. Na assign kasi ako sa guidance. Ako iniwasan ko ang board exam ng RGC for 3 years. Madami bago theories so aralin niyo yun. And well we also know din na not all na nag take nang board ay magaling din. What are the included lessons in your board examination under the group process? Actually lahat nang inaaral niyo nandun. at maganda magkaroon din the board exam para malaman talaga. I borrowed that book to my barkada. I was taking guidance and counseling and I have to stop and shift guidance and counseling to get the board exam and your gonna tell me na puwede na mag kalisensya yung matagal nang nagtuturo nang guidance. more wala kang maintindihan. Sabi kop ag pinayagan niyo ito sa K-12 your violating yung sa RGC. Bits and pieces of it! Including the theoris. What are the implications in taking the course and board examination in being a guidance counselor? Ang maganda dun. Kasi meron din basta makausap ka counseling na daw yun but we know very well na that’s not it. Yun pala I was arguing with the undersecretary of the DepEd and the head of TESDA. CHED. nag LBM siya that time tapos nung lumabas yung test result TOP 1. Diba ganun sa public school so puwede na bigyan nang license. So went to tesda and met the DepEd. and all those private schools. 4. imagine diba pinalipat ako nang course and that time counselor/psychometrician ako eh nag head psychometrician ako inexcuse ko pa psychometrician na ko so I don’t need that anymore pero hindi rin eh. Kasi I was part of the group who made the rules and regulations of K-12.

And to try to practice it. As a guidance counselor. Let’s say you are invited in a teambuilding and you don’t know. atleast yung nag invite sa inyo you get some background. You have to take care of it. Kunwari habang nag tuturo tayo bigla may nag sapakan. Next time keeping. What are the tips you can give us in conducting a successful group process? Know your clients first. You include that. Kaya nga as we study guidance and counseling and psychology. Pero the no matter how you much you plan and well verse you are in the activities technicalities sometimes you’re actually practicing it and something happens in the process that is outside your topic you have to address that. So I think that’s the big implication of having the board exam. And give clear instructions even sa time sa process then tawag ka nang participant and paulit mo. passing and taking that license. Kasi it will also shape the activities you plan for them tsaka mapaghandaan mo para makapag connect ka. wag din mainit ang ulo pag may di nasunod kasi hindi puwede yun kailangan mag adjust ka. Make sure you maximize time and di mag overtime. Pag mali. the way I talk to parents kasi madaling Irevoke. The real measure of what we’re learning in psychology and guidance and counseling is how you actually apply it eh. so anong gagawin mo dun. You plan for your activities and all the questions you will have. ulitin mo yung instructions kasi mahirap pag paulit ulit while doing the activity. What happens when the unexpected happens during group process. So kung di ka naman ka naman makagawa nang needs analysis atleast you know your clients. Kasi yun yung dapat tinuturo satin eh. Kasi sa group process hindi naman yan naka base ang success niyan sa materials mo. yung activities mo make sure na suited sa clients mo para you get to connect and may makuha na details. Parang in any program that you do diba you need to conduct needs analysis. 6. Diba learning happens when there is a change in behavior. 3rd. 7. Kaya nga group process. Mag tira ka ng 5 to 10 minutes. . Puwede rin naman while doing the process you get to adjust. you really learn this course there would be a change in behavior. way I speak. anything that happens in the group you need to process. wag ka mag focus sa mga nakahanda mong processing questions. sa behavior mo makikita. And always have plan B and plan C. ititgil mo ba lahat. how did you apply your knowledge in group process in your field? Can you give us sample cases? It’s like lesson plan. Syempre may mga stages tayo sa group process and do’s and don’ts as students and as professional. isama mo yung nangyari sa classroom o sa activity na yun. Kasi baka magpaka bargas ka dun tapos mga sosyalin naman pala hindi makikinig sayo yan. And it you can have an activity na less materials much better.

Find other ways na may matutunan ka kahit professional ka like seminar. What can you advice to us who wants to be a guidance counselor? It’s not about you love talking to people. Never stop reading and learning. You also have to understand also about the concepts and kaya naman natin inaaral kasi kailangan I-apply natin pero wag mag focus sa isang theory. it’s not enough to study 4 years and even masters kahit PhD. Kailangan tie up ang guidance sa ibang subject area lalo na sa K-12 dapat tie up talaga kasi every subject they should see the value in it and the future sa career nila. Kaya mahirap yung sinasabi nila na uy usap usap lang naman yan sa guidance. . Next siguro. pag babasa. And also have to review other subjects because you can use that as examples.8. kasi theory lang yan and ang mga theory ay na debunk yan.
