Educational Leadership for Faith-Based Schools
Why did you choose this graduate degree program? What interested you in this particular
field of study?
There was a need for the school I was teaching in to groom a new principal in the next coming years and the school board extended the opportunity to me. I prayed and considered the opportunity. I started looking for a Christian university in particular on the internet. I chanced upon several Christian American universities offering graduate program in education, but it was CBU where God led me to.
What did you like about being in this program at CBU?
It is the fact that the program focuses on grooming Christian leaders for Christian schools by Christian professors.
What did you think about your professors?
Culturally, since I am Filipino immersed in the Philippines educational system, there is a huge difference. In the Philippines, most professors intimidate students by making students feel inferior as opposed to professors in CBU who take an extra mile to help out their students. They teach bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
How did you grow while in this program at CBU?
As this program focuses on grooming Christian school leaders, I found every lesson to be very meaningful as each topic had an immediate application in the Christian school I work in. It made me ready to face the challenges in being an educator. Growth professionally was very evident for me. But more than that, it was the growth spiritually that made all the difference. Seeing things in a biblical perspective and being Holy Spirit led were the best “disciplines” I learned. I am not just an educator, but a Christian educator.
What have you done since graduating?
I am currently working as the principal of Antipolo Faith Christian School in the Philippines. CBU helped me grow professionally and spiritually. CBU prepared me well, in both mind and heart, to take on the leadership role to lead the school and nurture excellent Christian student leaders who will live purposefully and shine for Christ.
