Each student who dreams of becoming a teacher should undergo trainings to learn different methods and strategies of teaching that need in the profession which they want to belong. Three half years of pure lectures about the profession they choose, and during those times, the students were still undecided on their course. The remaining semester was the deciding moment that determines for their success or failure. At this period, the students still undergo practice teaching to apply the theories, teaching strategies and methods they learned. It was the time in which the student will teach in real classroom situations, where they would handle pupils whom they did not know what kind of behavior they had. During this period, the students expect that all things might happen to them. They also prepared themselves about the possible problems they might encounter when they are inside the school. They also should always be prepared on what possible solutions to solve their problems. I could say that this was one of the memorable parts of my entire life. In this period, I learned a lot of things like dealing with my pupils, my cooperating teachers, and other personnel in the school. I learned how to love this profession that I had chosen. I could say that I did the right choice to become a teacher.

e. Brief Historical Background of Guimba West In 1920, the first Grade I was organized. The class was accommodated temporarily at the ground floor residence of the late Lorenzo Cuyuco located north of the Ongjanco
Street and north of the public auditorium, no school building was available then. In 1922, a seven-room building made of light materials like nipa roofing and sawali walling was constructed at the southern portion of the present Guimba West Central School site facing L. de Ocampo Street. The building orientation was east to west and gate was at the L. de Ocampo Street. The school was headed by a supervising principal with seven barrio schools. In 1928, because there was an abrupt increase in the yearly enrollment, so there was a need for additional school buildings and classrooms in all schools in the district. To improve for this, a three-storey building replaced the temporary school building with ten rooms, an office at the third floor and a library room at the second floor. A home Economics building was also constructed and the ground floor served for the shop classes. During the Second World War in 1924, the storey building was burned by Japanese forces when they had made a building as their headquarters. After the war, in 1948, when the educational program expanded, the primary and the complete elementary school were established. The Gabaldon Type School Building was constructed at Guimba East Central School, Guimba West Central School, and to the other five barrio school like Manacsac, Pacac, Maturanoc, Bunol and San Roque. These buildings were named after Senator Isauro Gabaldon who hailed this province. Presently, the Gabaldon buildings were demolished because they will build new buildings. This growth were attained through the leadership of the District Monitoring Area Supervisor, Mr. John A. dela Cruz, and the concerted efforts of the whole teaching force and the school population in their involvement, cooperation and participation on any school project. An overview of the district growth and development is quite impressive,
particularly the remarkable accomplishment in both academic and physical aspects of the school. Most school surroundings are now laboratories of learning with school facilities very much innovated.
