The demand for Filipino teachers to teach in other countries provides boundless opportunities, including monetary reward, despite challenges concerning differences on curricula and cultures when teaching abroad. One thing that facilitates their adjustment is by embracing the Vision, Mission and Objectives (VMO) of the school where they teach. The focus of this inquiry is to gather teaching experiences of Filipino teachers in foreign schools, to share their perceptions and understanding of their present VMO’s and how they managed to embrace all these through paradigm shifting. Purposive sampling was used to conduct interview to 6 Filipino teachers abroad through email, messenger, Skype application and data were analyzed through HyperResearch 4.0.0. The highest level of achievement is in improving the lives of the children towards success of schools and its student development. Communication barriers in understanding the native language and in producing appropriate accent, cultural differences and individual preferences hinder harmonious relationship; noted were minimal prevalence of discrimination.
