A handy man, he does all sorts of things from plumbing to carpentry to painting cars in his spare time. His new interest is genealogy.
Ariel G. Ponce, artist. “Latebloomer” is perhaps the best description for Prof. Ariel E.G. Ponce. Content to just teach Fine Arts in the Far Eastern University’s Institute of Architecture and Fine Arts (IARFA), winning in any writing contest was the last thing on his mind. But after being prompted to rediscover his essay writing skills by his Dean in the Institute of Education where he took his Master of Arts in Education, he won second place in the Angel C. Palanca (ACP) Peace Celebration Essay Writing Contest; only his second writing award after a lapse of more than 30 years ago. And the winning tradition continues as Professor Ponce placed third in the same contest the following year before joining the CFO and NCCA sponsored literary contest. He has recently won first place in the ACP essay writing contest held this year. Prof. Ponce has found a new medium in writing as he continually enjoys painting images with palettes of vocabulary.
Ariel R. Valeza teaches Humanities and Literature, sings like a diva, loves to travel and generally has a great lust for life. Stress on “lust” is necessary. He has almost everything brand new: house, ref, and a kid. He has degrees in English, and Curriculum and Instruction (High Distinction), and Educational Management.
