Dr. Josette Biyo is grateful fate led her to a career in teaching even when she dreamt of being a medical doctor in her younger years.
...
Born with a heart for community service, Ms. Biyo purposefully integrates social relevance in her teachings. She said it is more effective to teach students based on experience rather than theoretical content.
In the rural school, she played an active role as a moderator of the Rural Health and Science Education Committee. She designed outreach programs for students and teachers, which enabled them to teach primary health care to the barangays.
After spending eight years at Saint Elizabeth Academy, Biyo pursued a Master's degree in Biology at De La Salle University in Manila for a year and five months and became a full-time assistant professor in the institution.
In 1995 she and her family went back to Iloilo and became a special science teacher at the Philippine Science High School Western Visayas in Iloilo city. Two years later, she was cited by the Metrobank Foundation as one of the outstanding teachers in the country.
To further improve her skills and widen her knowledge, she returned to Manila for postgraduate studies at De la Salle University. She obtained a Ph.D. in Biology in 2001.
Currently, Biyo is the Academic Science Chief of Philippine Science High School Western Visayas, a school where she also teaches the subject of Science Research.
...
My commitment is to teach not only the students but also the teachers," Ms. Biyo said.
Effective teaching, she said, takes different methods. "Even if I teach the subject for 24 years, hindi pare-parehas ang methods ko (my methods are different). I have to see what methods are adaptable for my students," she stressed.
Part of her methods is conducting classes outside the classroom. There are times when she brings her students to do field research, allowing the students to experience the environment.
"Aside from being a teacher, I also do research. If they do field work, I am really with them rain or shine. Even during weekends, if the students need me I will go with them," she said.
Despite being recognized in her chosen field, Biyo said that awards are not what she valued the most.
...
Behind the achievements and hardwork, Biyo lives simply. Her family lives from what she earns as her husband who was formerly a seaman stopped working after an accident about nine years ago. A farm they own helps provide fruits and vegetables on their table.
"My family lives a very simple lifestyle, when I decided to teach, we had to give up our middle class lifestyle and to really live according to our means," she said. Right now, what she considers as her most luxurious possession is her second-hand car.
...
Biyo has received offers to teach elsewhere, particularly overseas, but she is firm on staying put at the Philippine Science High School in Iloilo.
...
Apart from keeping her role as educator in the science school, Biyo is also setting her sights on putting up a school for gifted children someday.
"Eventually in the years to come I want to have my school. I want to put a school that would really cater to the gifted children, because we don't have a curriculum for their needs," she noted.
She strongly believes in the strength of the human spirit, that it has no limit and that if a person works really hard toward maximizing that potential, he/she would achieve so much.
However, she stressed that said success takes a lot of patience, perseverence and diligence.
