Entire Class Makes it to Honor Roll, Receives Special Portraits from Teacher

In the past, only the top 10 students with the highest marks in school make it to the Honor Roll, but recent changes in the grading system had also allowed changes in the way students qualify for the list of honor awardees.

This time, most schools do not just rank students by their grades up to a certain number of students. Instead, everyone who achieves a certain mark/grade and gets to fulfill other requirements, such as no grade below 80 for example, is entitled to be part of the Honor Roll.

Mailyn Esquelito Akoy went viral last year for being proud of her ‘kargador’ father, including him as part of her graduation photos.

This year, the young lady went viral again for the inspiring deed she made for her students. Mailyn is now a Business Teacher and STEM12 – Q103 Adviser at the Notre Dame of Tacurong College – Senior High School Department in Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat.

‘Teacher Mai’, as she is known to her students, had only entered the school during the second semester, she told Buhay Teacher. She had previously worked in Toyota, but tried to apply at the school even though they were specifically hiring a Business Teacher, not one with General Education.

But the school hired her, anyway. She was assigned as the adviser of the first section. At the time, no one knew she had actually gone viral and was that graduate with the ‘kargador’ dad. It was only when she became a teacher that they found out after checking her Facebook profile – and she has become an inspiration to many students in the school.

At the start of their class, Teacher Mai promised her students she would give them a gift for graduation if everyone makes it to the Honor Roll. It was a tall order for her class of 50 students, yet everyone managed to do their best and are all set to receive awards!

Seven of Teacher Mai’s students are ‘High Honors’ while the rest of the class completed the year ‘With Honors’. Proud of her students, this inspiring teacher created portraits for each one; both as a gift and an encouragement for everyone to continue doing their best in life.
