MABUHAY! My name is Raymond Palarca Panzo from the Philippines. I am an Exchange Visitor Program (EVP) Teacher category participant. This is my first year of teaching in the United States.

It is my honor to teach in Circle School, Alaska. I am enthusiastic to learn and experience the rich culture of the Alaskans. Likewise, I am so excited to share Filipino culture and traditions to the school and community.

Teaching is a rewarding profession, because it can make a difference in the lives of children, and it can shape them into a responsible adult and an asset to the community. I am so grateful to have an opportunity of teaching in Circle School.
