  • We are in “crisis schooling” now. It is an unprecedented time for parents and educators who now have to work harder than ever together. The good news is people are stepping up and doing more than what is expected. We want to honor these men and women.

    Together with Summit Original Videos, SmartParenting.com.ph launches the E-skwela 2020 video series that showcases how students, teachers, and schools adapt to changes during the pandemic. You can watch the first video here.

    Meet our first #HeroTeacher for the E-skwela series 

    Remote learning comes with a different set of challenges, including the lack of gadgets and access to a stable Internet connection for students.

    So, Edelyn Nicol, a high school teacher in Pacita Complex National High School in San Pedro, Laguna, exchanged her old projector for supplies to print learning modules and booklets for the kids who should be in preschool or kindergarten in her neighborhood.

    Edelyn says she started the initiative to help motivate parents to help their kids learn at a young age.


    “Huwag po silang mawalan ng pagasa, nakasalalay po sa kanila ‘yung pagkatuto nung kanilang anak. Lalo na ngayon, wala kaming mga teachers, nag-a-assist lang po kami ngayon, hindi po naming totally matutukan ang bata,” she says. “Ang magulang po ang pinakamalaking parte ngayon sa development ng kanilang anak.”

    Watch Edelyn's inspiring video below to find out how you can help the #HeroTeacher campaign and support her initiative.
