Hi there! My name is Francis Feb Paña Otong. I was born in The Philippines and come from the municipality of President Roxas in the province of North Cotabato famously mostly known as “The Fruit Basket of Mindanao.” I am a passionate, diligent, and resilient person. I am a graduate of Bachelor of Education major in English at Notre Dame of Kidapawan College. After graduating from university, I became a public servant in our rural community to help people in need, especially young adults. However, after a while, I decided to seek greener pastures and pursue my teaching career in Thailand. In June 2022, ECC offered me a job teaching an IEP (Intensive English Program) at Khokkloi Municipal School. By the end of the first term, I became a direct-hired English teacher at Thetsaban Ban Yan Yao School, teaching students in an English program. In my spare time I enjoy calligraphy and origami. I also like watching movies, and reading articles on the Internet and listening to podcasts. Throughout my career I have been inspired and motivated by a famous quote from St. Marcellin Champagnat one of the founders of Notre Dame of Kidapawan College: “If you want to teach young people, first you must love them. You must love them all equally.” This quotation is very powerful to me, and reminds me to do whatever it takes to motivate my students, be patient with them, and always believe that they are all intelligent in their own ways.
