    I’m a regular teacher employed in one of the public schools here in the metro. I would like to ask if you have other job vacancies (other than those you posted) for teachers like me who is interested to work in your agency? I salute the services you render to the public and I believe I could be of great help. Thanks and more power.

    i am a graduate of bachelor of science in electronics communication engineering, and had earned units in education and masteral units in MAED. i am a license teacher and a differently abled person working for eleven years as computer teacher at the same time computer technician in one of the private school here in Panabo City, Davao del Norte with my monthly salary of 7,500. I am writing you because I need your support and recommendation letter for my application to the DepEd. I want to apply in a public institution because my salary cannot compensate with the growing needs of my family as a married man. Knowing your commitment to support us as PWD to the fullest extent possible, I shall count on your most positive feedback. Thanks
