I have an earned doctorate in Special Education and I intend to contribute myself in the field to realize my passion. As a researcher and a scholar, I am fully recognizing my ability to pursue my duty successfully. Some six and a half years of teaching experience in the elementary schools would definitely help me in doing my job as a youth researcher. Still my experiences of teaching at several colleges and attending national and international conferences would be great asset for me in corresponding and collaborating with other colleagues in the field.

Community Service
I have tried to contribute myself to the enhancement of people's understanding of the children and youth with disabilities in the schools and community. Sometimes I gave short lectures, discussions, and

organized various types of gatherings with parents. I also tried to enlighten the regular teachers in understanding exceptional children and special education through in-service training. Most of these jobs are voluntary.
