Okay, I finally remembered to research for my supposedly well-known teacher…whom I have a hard time understanding because of the foreign words he uses during discussions. It’s probably me and not him.
Anyway, I googled him and here’s what came out.

responsibilities in the University,
I was dumbfounded. It was now confirmed….The reason I can’t understand his subject was because of me——-not because of his weird way of teaching. I’ve got to admit, though—-I’m not alone.
Okay, here’s more:
Estoconing of Tayasan, Negros Occidental finished his Bachelorâ€™s
degree in Business Administration at Silliman University. After
graduation, he took a job as a teacher in Lanao del Norte where he also
served as the schoolâ€™s guidance counselor and later, assistant
principal. After a year and a half in Lanao del Norte, he returned to
Silliman where he worked, initially, as a member of the office staff,
then as dormitory adviser and as part-time member of the faculty. He
was later hired as a regular faculty member in the economics
department, even serving as its chairperson for some time. Owing to his
many involvement and accomplishments, Roberto was the Outstanding
Faculty awardee of Silliman University in 1999. He was also a recipient
of the Nationa Agila Award in 2003, and his life story was featured in
the TV program Inspiring Life Story of IBC Channel 13 in September
2003. Roberto feels that he can best contribute to the development of
the country by participating in poverty alleviation programs of both
government and non-government organizations. He intends to pursue
graduate work in enterprise development and related fields having
direct impact on community organizations and rural development.
It even got his picture!! Can’t believe it…no wonder he’s got no friendster profile ((not that I know of))—he wouldn’t need it!!!
You noticed that I didn’t cite the sources—oh well, this isn’t an official research paper you know.
