Maayong Adlaw! I'm Stephan Khrisha Romarate-Noya. I am here as a J1-Exchange Teacher from Cebu City, Philippines. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education with a major in English at Cebu Normal University, and earned 30 credit units in a Master of Arts degree in Education with a major in English Teaching. I have been teaching English for five (5) years now in both public and private schools. As a teacher, I always believe that learning takes place best while having fun. With that being said, I always integrate fun lessons and activities that will pique the learners' interest and keep them motivated in completing the tasks they must do and learn. I also don't just teach things that we could easily find in books but also life lessons. I want my students to be not just academically smart but also street smart. I am looking forward to a fruitful adventure this year!
