Another Filipino teacher based in Phitsanulok hopes to clinch the first Ginoong Tiktok crown.
Ian Dave Aguirre, 25, currently teaches mathematics at an elementary school in Phitsanulok, Thailand.
Dave revealed that the reason why he competes to earn the first Ginoong Tiktok crown is to encourage small time content makers to use Tiktok to show off their skills.
“I want to inspire small content creators to showcase their abilities in doing Tiktok videos. I want to tell people that it is not too late to pursue their wildest dreams or passions in life,” he said.
He added that he intends to use this platform to develop and distribute unfiltered material that will excite his audience without limits.
“There is no hatred, only love!” he quipped.
Dave hails from Koronadal, South Cotabato and finished a degree in Secondary Education, Major in Mathematics.
Ginoong Tiktok Crown: Math Teacher’s Advocacy
As a mathematics teacher, he wants to volunteer in an organization that helps children with dyscalculia.
Dyscalculia is a learning disability in math. People with this disability struggle with math on a variety of levels. They frequently struggle with fundamental ideas such as greater vs. smaller. They may also struggle with simple math tasks as well as more complicated concepts.
“I feel so blessed to have the ability to solve complex mathematical problems. I want to be the bridge to those children suffering from this kind of learning disability,” he said.
“Every child deserves equal opportunities to learn and harness their potentials in learning mathematics,” Aguirre added.
Dave’s ultimate ambition is to go around the world. He admitted that he is interested in learning and exploring new things as a traveler.
According to him, he has always been a voracious reader and a daydreamer on occasion. He now prefers to be a doer and wishes to travel and experience the other side of the globe once the pandemic is contained.
Ginoong Tiktok 2021 is a virtual pageant that attempts to bring Filipino tiktokers and teachers in Thailand closer together. @kruphiktokers is the driving force behind it.
