Mount Carmel School first-grade instructor Jasseline “Jass” Ayuyu Seman continues to work on her credentials as an educator in the CNMI.
Earning her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education is just the beginning, Seman said, as she is already enrolled in Framingham State University’s master’s degree program in International Teaching through Northern Marianas College.
“I understand how important it is in our society to have strong credentials to gain more opportunities and build a successful future,” said Seman.
Seman graduated from Chapin High School in El Paso Texas in 2014 and returned home to the CNMI to start her college career and academic journey. With education being a priority in her life, she first earned her associate degree in Liberal Arts with an Emphasis in Education.
“I feel that my greatest trial while working toward my degree was managing time with family and school work. My greatest accomplishments so far are earning my bachelor’s degree, being a good role model for my family, and pursuing my lifelong dream of being an educator,” Seman said.
Mount Carmel School principal Barbara Merfalen said, “We are very lucky to have Ms. Jass as a part of our school family. She started as a teaching assistant, but proved herself to be a valuable member in our faculty and is now one of the homeroom advisors for our kindergarten students.”
That same year Seman joined the MCS community in 2019, she worked with soon-to-retire Delfina Muña to ease the students with the transition. (PR)
