The teacher told the learner not to worry because they will go through the lesson again. Teacher Jamoi also thanked the student for being honest. “Ok nak. Aralin natin ulit. Salamat sa pagiging honest.”

“Ung mgiging honest ka na di mo alam… It’s okay…. Kailangan ntn ipaalam sknla na it’s okay na di nila alam… Dahil dito palang pinapakita na nila at naamin sa sarili nila na nahihirapan sila,” the teacher said.

In an interview with Pilipino Star Ngayon Digital, the teacher acknowledged that there are students who struggled with learning during the pandemic.

“1st quarter exam po kasi… Since galing po tayo ng pandemic, 2 years walang f2f classes.. Marami po sa kanila nahihirapan.. Science po actually yung subject na ito, tapos sa last part may computation po… Yung 25/50 diyan dapat po magdidivide sila… Hindi niya po alam kung paano idivide… Kaya nailagay na lang po ng bata hindi ko po alam,” the teacher told Pilipino Star Ngayon Digital.

She said she wrote a note on the test paper in order to assure the kid that it is okay to not know everything.

“Yung naramdaman ko nung nabasa ko po ung message nung bata is bumabalik sa akin kung bakit ako naging teacher khit 1st profession ko is nursing… And as a teacher po kaya nagreply ako sa paper nya… Kasi need din po natin iassure ang bata na okay lang na di po nila alam…. Okay lang yun kasi nagta-try pa din po sila….,” she said.

Meanwhile, netizens thanked the teacher for being understanding of her student.

“I hope all teachers are like this, instead of discouraging those students who failed, they should encourage them to do better next time and help them in times of need,” another said.
