The year 2011 opened for me new doors to my professional as well as to my personal growth.

The College of Teacher Education, which was entrusted to by the present University Administration to oversee has its own share of undergoing various reform initiatives in the formation of future teachers.

As one academic unit, an daunted to give our students only the best, we were able to sustain the good name of the College. Guided by the inspi-ration of our leader, we take pride in the success of our graduates in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) and Licensure Examination for Librarians (LEL). We are one family in our mission of delivering quality teacher educator.

I can only say ―thank you‖ to our school administrators for their wholehearted support, to my fellow middle level administrators for their inspirations, my fellow faculty members of the College of Teacher Education for their support and understanding and the students for allowing us to bring the best in them. We look forward to another fruitful year ahead.

For all this, may God be glorified.

On October 14, 1965, the Board of Regents was constituted with Supt. Pastor M. Obien as Chairman and Mr. Bonifacio A. Rosales as the Board Secretary.

  3. committed humanist whose clear understanding and appreciation of human ideals and values inspire learners to reach greater heights of human aspirations.

History

When House Bill No. 9251, introduced by the late Congressman Floro S.

Act. 4449, the Ilocos Sur School of Arts and Trades was converted into a state university, now known as the University of Northern Philippines.

On October 14, 1965, the Board of Regents was constituted with Supt. Pastor M. Obien as Chairman and Mr. Bonifacio A. Rosales as the Board Secretary.

When Rep.

In 1968, by virtue of Board Resolution No.120, S. 1968, the College of Teacher Education was established.

In August 1999, Prof. Dionisio P. Tabuno was designated as Dean but unfortunately met his untimely demise on September 14, 1999.

On October 1, 1999, Dr. Rosa R. de Peralta, a former Coordinator for BEED Student Teaching and BEED Program Head was designated as the dean of the college. Mr. Bajet continued to be the College Secretary.

When Dr. de Peralta resigned as the dean of the college on April, 2002, Dr. Ocarna B. Figuerres who was concurrently the Director for Instruction was appointed dean of the College.
