Raymond Panzo - Principal/Teacher
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.
I am a Licensed Professional Teacher in my home country. I taught in Corazon C. Aquino High School, Philippines for six years. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Professional Education Units from Tarlac State University. I also received my Master of Education and Doctor of Education in the same university.
I love dancing. In fact, I am a Cheerleading and Cultural/Festival Street Dance Coach and choreographer. I also do Hair and Make Up Artistry. During my free time I like to cook and collect ornamental plants.
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.
