Dr. Aposin was born and raised at Hipona, Pontevedra, Capiz, by his parents, Mr. Mamerto Aposin (deceased) and Mrs. Gloria Aposin. He has finished his elementary and secondary education also at his hometown. He then proceeded to Filamer Christian College (now Filamer Christian University) and took up Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Halfway through his college, his father died; and being the eldest and the only son in the family, he has to find ways to sustain and finish his college education. He became a work student and was assigned at the snack counter of the high school IGP. While doing his chores at the high school canteen, he learned the value of service and discipline. In his speech delivered before Filamerians two years ago, he recalled his experiences during those times. Here is an excerpt:
"It’s not enough that we know what we wanted. We must pursue it with patience and persistence. In other words, don’t give up easily. It wasn’t easy to be assigned in the canteen. I had to balance work and studies, especially so because the work in the canteen was mostly during the day. It required discipline and being organized. At 6 am, we had to open the canteen and my first task was to clean the whole area inside and outside. Filling the cooler with bottles of soft drinks follows next, and so on. It’s here where I learned to wash piles and piles of dishes in a systematic manner. I applied the same discipline when I worked as a professional. Things are not earned the easy way. Success is sweeter when attained through hard work and perseverance," Dr. Aposin emphasized.
Through his perseverance and hard work, he finished his course in 1987 and joined the teaching force the following year. Prior to working at the public school, he has spent almost 10 years in the private schools. In 1998, he joined Hipona National High School starting as a Teacher I, then Teacher III. Eventually, he was assigned as principal of Tuburan National High School in 2007, and in Florentina Degala National High School in 2008. In 2009, he both served as Principal III of Malonoy National High School and OIC - Assistant Schools Division Superintendent of Department of Education Capiz Division. The following year, he was elevated as Assistant Schools Division Superintendent of the DepEd Capiz. In 2012, he was promoted as Schools Division Superintendent of DepEd Roxas City Division.
