Even though his mother cannot afford to send him to school yet, a young boy found a way to still learn by peeking through a classroom’s window.

Teacher Jihan Ahmad noticed the boy and invited him in.

“Napansin ko batang to always nagtatambay sa labas ng room ko. Tinanong ko kung nag-aaral ba siya. Tapos hindi raw. Curious ang pupils ko,” teacher Jihan shared on TikTok.

The teacher then invited him to sit down and start learning. Teacher Jihan said she can see that the pupil was excited. “I’m asking kasi I want you to learn nak! Be one of my pupils. Sabi ko, ‘Gusto mo pumasok?’ Halinat pumasok ka’t mag-aral. Pasok dali. Excited siya,” she said.

“Deserve mong matuto at mag-aral nak! So I gave him a big notebook and pencil. My pleasure to help and educate young minds. I hope someday you’ll learn a lot from me. Kaya n’yo yan.”

In an update, the teacher shared that she already talked to the kid’s mom and she found out that the boy is the sixth of ten children. Aside from the boy, he has two other siblings who are not yet studying because the family wanted to prioritize the eldest child.

“Tatlo pala silang anak ni nanay na di pa naka-enrol dahil priority muna ang panganay. Sana raw matuto ang mga bata at gagawin po natin yun. Nanay asked me baka pwede raw pati dalawa pa niyang anak mag-aral din.”

Netizens praised the teacher for her initiative to invite the boy to start studying, saying that she already made a mark in the boy’s life.

“He will never forget you. In his young heart, you’re already someone who has a place in his chambers,” a netizen said.

“Someday that kid will tell stories of how his awesome teacher changed the course of his life,” another commented.

Others said they hope the teacher will serve as an inspiration to her colleagues. “Sana dumami pa yung teacher na ganito. A teacher with a big heart, I pray na bigyan ka ni God ng happy and blessed life.”
