She successfully passed the Licensure Examination for teacher after 25 tries. Teacher Gennie is presently teaching in Tarlac at Tarukan Elementary School.
In a video shared by Doc Willie Ong, Panguelo said that she immediately worked as a teacher to educate her fellow Aetas right after graduating.
She also revealed that she was able to teach after graduation because the government were not so strict during that time. Educators were allowed to teach even without passing the LET. However, she started taking the test since 1990.
At around year 2010, the government became strict with implementing the law about teacher's license as a requirement for a public school teacher. That's when teacher Gennie started to experience insults and belittling.
