Hello! I am Marijoice Melad Bariuan, but you can call me Joice for short. I am the Deputy teacher for Year 5 Blue. It is my first time to work here in HeadStart and I am excited and honoured to be part of this amazing and esteemed team. I graduated from Cagayan State University with a degree in Bachelor of Elementary Education. In 2017, the same year I graduated, I passed my teacher's license test. With five years of teaching experience, I have had the privilege of working with diverse groups of students across various age groups and backgrounds. My teaching journey has encompassed different levels, allowing me to tailor my approach to suit the unique needs and learning styles of my students. I believe that education is not just about imparting knowledge, but also about nurturing students' curiosity, critical thinking skills, and emotional well-being. Every student has a unique journey of learning, and as a deputy teacher, my role is to guide and support them on that journey. I am thrilled and eager to be part of creating empowered individuals and a brighter tomorrow through the magic of teaching.
