Senior High School Teachers Quits Teaching To Build A Taho Shop
Camille Ona and Marvin Paclibare, both senior high school teachers, ended their teaching journey and built a special milk tea-inspired taho shop.
In a report by Janelle Lorzano from the Philippine Star, the former teachers shared their inspiring story.
Camille and Marvin quit teaching to venture into business. Marvin said the pandemic made them realize possibilities outside of their teaching career.
“Kung hindi nagka-pandemic, siguro nasa teaching pa rin ako. Akala ko nung time na yun, doon na talaga ako habang buhay. Paglabas mo pala dun, may malaki pang mundo na naka-abang sa iyo,” he said.
They created Taho Klasiko, a shop that offers milktea-inspired taho.
Their idea was a big hit! From earning P12,000 to P15,000 as teachers, Camille said they are now earning 6-digit figures a month.
“Though mahal rin namin ang teaching, siguro being practical na lang din this time,” Camille shared.
But being entrepreneurs doesn’t mean they have completely turned their backs on teaching.
“In relation naman po sa pagiging teacher sa pag bu-business, so parang may similarities rin man o tinatawag na common denominator. Kagaya sa school, nag-aaral kami kung ano ‘yung mga tinuturo namin, ituturo namin. Dito naman natutunan din naman namin na makinig din Ma’am sa mga mentor, sa mga taong,” Marvin explained.
