The Gumaboy sisters from Kalinga, Philippines, passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) in October 2022. An inspiration to all aspiring teachers, showing that anything is possible with hard work, dedication, and support from loved ones.

Corazon and George Gumaboy, a housewife and a farmer from the town of Buaya in Balbalan, Kalinga, can now proudly say that they have four licensed professional teachers in their household. Their daughters, Jorace (30), Marjolyn (28), and Janica (24), and their daughter-in-law, Geraldine (31), all passed the October 2022 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).

The four sisters have different educational backgrounds. Jorace and Marjolyn are education unit earners, while Geraldine and Janica are Bachelor of Elementary Education graduates. However, they all share a common goal: to become teachers and make a difference in the lives of their students.

The Gumaboy sisters from Kalinga, Philippines, passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) in October 2022.

The sisters did not plan to take the LET together, but they decided to file their applications after learning that the Table of Specifications for the March 2023 LET would change due to the revised curriculum.

Jorace recounted, "Wala din po sa plan magsabay sabay na mag-take po. Dalawa sa amin po ang nag-plan talaga na mag-take but since sabi po kasi nila na last term na ng old curriculum last year kaya napadali ... at naglakas loob po ako nagfile. At 'yung youngest sis po namin pinilit lang din po namin siya."

Jorace recounted that the four of them helped each other in reviewing. One of their modes of reviewing was taking turns in asking and answering questions. She added that they also learned techniques and concepts from each other. The four sisters encouraged each other to keep going, even when things got tough.

On December 16, 2022, their hard work paid off when they all passed the LET. The Gumaboy family is overjoyed with the success of their daughters and daughter-in-law. They are proud of their children's accomplishments and are confident that they will make great teachers.

The Gumaboy sisters' story is an inspiration to all aspiring teachers. It shows that with hard work, dedication, and support from loved ones, anything is possible.

The Gumaboy sisters' story is a reminder that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. It is an inspiration to me, and I'm sure it will be an inspiration to others as well.

Here are some of the things that make their story so inspiring:

  • They are all from a small town in Kalinga province, a remote and impoverished area in the Philippines.
  • They all had different educational backgrounds, but they were all determined to achieve their dream of becoming teachers.
  • They helped each other in their review and motivated each other to keep going, even when things got tough.
  • They all passed the LET, which is a difficult exam that only a small percentage of people pass.

The Gumaboy sisters' story is a reminder that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. They are an inspiration to all aspiring teachers, and their story shows that with hard work, dedication, and support from loved ones, anything is possible.
