Many Filipinos face this kind of situation every day but there were still people who are extending their hands to help. This teacher from South Cotabato is one of them. He may not be rich and he may not have a lot of money but he uses his creativity and resourcefulness to decorate and fix one of their classroom walls. He used broken armchairs and sinks and transformed it into colorful ceilings.
The amazing educator was later known as teacher Reynel Calmerin. He graduated college taking up Bachelor of Elementary Education at the University of Southeastern Philippines in Tagum City, Davao Del Norte. He is currently teaching at Polomolok Elementary School in South Cotabato.

The hardworking teacher doesn’t mind the work and effort he has done just to make their classroom beautiful. He was not just creative and innovative but he is also a resourceful one!
