Resum: The purpose of this research was to give a general idea on the lives of public school teachers with disabilities teaching in the Greater Manila of the Philippines. More specifically, it intended to acquirea qualitative understanding of how they grew up, and how these experiences influenced not only their decision to become teachers, but their present personal and professional lives as well. As a result of areflexivethematic narrative analysis, I highlighted several experiences from their childhood to their present lives, anddiscovered the profound effects of Filipino beliefs and attitudes regarding disability, and the teachers' own socio-economic conditions to their journey as teachersUsingthe social-relational model of disabilityas a framework, this study alsodiscussed how the external events influenced the teachers internally -particularly in the way they saw themselves. These were described as manifestations of internalized oppression,fearoffailure, and constantly feeling the needto prove themselves to others -tosociety, to their non-disabled teachers/professors, and to their peers. On the other hand, this study also showedthat the teacherswere and arenot simply receivers of negative judgement and discrimination, but are active decision makers. They fought their way through the system by supporting themselves in their studies, by rising up the ranks in their profession, and currently by also encouraging their students to do the same. Their personal motivation to be role models in the lives of their students (and their students' parents) is rooted in the personal understanding of what it means to be disabled in Filipino society.
