I never imagined how magical dreams really are when you achieve them.
With the constant support of Jobs Connect USA, it has been an adventure!
Since I started the process with JCU, I knew for sure I wasn’t alone fighting for my dreams.
I felt so blessed that Jobs Connect USA gave me the opportunity to believe in myself, and here I am teaching in a beautiful school, where I’m teaching and learning every single day, sharing my culture, and loving what I’m doing.
I couldn’t be more grateful to Dr. and Mrs. Tupas the Owners and CEO of JCU.
Thank you JCU, I will always be thankful for this and for the friendship we built from day one.
Grants High School
Moving to the City of Grants New Mexico USA, from the small town of Binangonan Rizal, Philippines was a move that I thought would be impossible. Even so, with the help and unwavering support of Jobs Connect USA owned by Dr. Jonathan and Madame Alma Tupas, I was able to make a seamless transition from Philippine Education into the American Education System. I have been searching for the perfect teacher agency for a while to help me fulfill my dreams of teaching in the United States but never came close to finding it until I found JCU. God has given me that ONE THING, and that ONE THING was the perfect opportunity to know these wonderful, purpose-driven, and indefatigable couple who helped me dream high, fly high, and soar like an eagle. They’re God’s instrument to fulfill my dreams to teach in America and to reap the fruits of my labor. This couple is passionate to help their “kababayans” reach their dreams of becoming an international teacher. My journey here at JCU is truly a life-changing experience. I will definitely recommend JCU to anyone who wants to teach in the USA and change their lives for the better.
