Ms. Helen Rose P. Omela of Ayangan Elementary School, Mayoyao, Ifugao engrossed in her profession as a teacher in one of the mountainous areas of Ifugao province.

She is a Grade 6 teacher. This new normal tested her passion for teaching where she proved it very real.

She used to visit one of her pupils, Raven Claris P. Aduan every Tuesday for about an hour and a half.

She needs to walk for about 30 minutes from the school to the learner's house.

Recently when she went to the house of the learner, they informed her that Raven Claris together with her Grade 7 sister went to their kaingin along with their modules to guard their rice plant against Maya birds.

This experience made teacher Helen Rose realized that if a child thinks of his future, nothing will hinder him to reach their goals in life. Parents need to help children understand the importance of education in creating a better tomorrow.

Once they understand this, their motivation will rise, and they will work for it willingly and without hesitation.

Together: we can do better.
