Juana Caminade-Villegas Proves Hard Work Pays Off
JUANA CAMINADE-VILLEGAS – Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education graduate Juana Caminade-Villegas passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).
There are people who have proven that education is really an important thing and none can hinder a person who really wants to learn. One of them is the 58-year-old LET taker Juana Caminade-Villegas or also called ‘Annie’.
Based on a report in SunStar Cebu, she is a mother of two professionals already when she took the board examination for teachers. One of her children is Jonathan Villegas, a lawyer and a councilor of the municipality of Argao.
Juana Caminade-Villegas graduated cum laude at the Cebu Technological University Argao campus in 2017. She was reportedly the oldest student in her batch.
Speaking to SunStar Cebu, Juana Caminade-Villegas expressed that she gave up her law studies for a semester to review for the LET exam. She also left her job at the Department of Agriculture (DA).
Aside from being a Law student and a monitoring assistant for DA, she was also taking a trainer’s methodology course offered by the Technological Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) during that time. All of it is aside from the fact that she has a home to attend to.
According to Juana, she thought that she would not be able to pass the LET exam as she was not prepared to take the exam. She stressed that it was like a thorn has been removed when she passed it.
“Ang pag-eskwela dili na duwa-duwa lang. Tinood nga dili ko full-time student pero kung kugihan ka o interesado kang mutoon, makapalampos gyud ka. Importante sad nga ibalance ang imung work ug studies,” she expressed based on the report.
[You must be serious about going to school. I wasn’t even a full-time student but if you study hard and you’re interested to learn, then you will succeed. It’s also important to balance your work and studies,]
Reportedly, Juana Caminade-Villegas’ next goal is to finish her course under the TESDA and to go back to her Law studies.
