Mr. Eugene Agulto

I spent 1st and 2nd year high school in Phil. College of Technological Resources but due to traffic and other circumstances I transferred in St Francis in Novaliches. 

I felt so lost during my third year high because I didn't know anyone  unlike in PCTR where I knew people because my elder sisters and brother were from the same school.

I was lucky enough to have a very kind adviser, Mr. Eugene Agulto, who just came out from the seminary and decided to teach. It was his first year to be a teacher, and we were his guinea pigs (lol). He may have been young and soft-spoken at that time but he sure knew how to discipline his students in a caring way. Unlike other teachers, Mr. Agulto didn't show favoritism among his students so I felt secured knowing that I have a chance of making it to the top. I was fortunate to have been under the advisory class of Mr. Agulto because I ranked number in my section so in fourth year high I was placed in section 1.

Though happy being in the top section, I felt sad because Sir Eugene didn't renew his contract with the school.

Fast forward to 2017, 28 years to be exact, a classmate found Sir Eugene in Facebook. I added him and had a mini reunion with my former classmate Jennifer Salen. 

Ngayon para na lang kaming magkaka-edad. It was great reminiscing our high school days, as well as sharing our respective views and opinions about life, pains, struggles and love.

and instill a love of learning."
