Two Teachers Earn Praise for Serving as Frontliners in COVID-19 Crisis

While teachers might not be the ones you would usually associate as frontliners in the COVID-19 crisis, there are actually some who do serve in the frontlines! Two public school teachers earned praise for serving as frontliners in the COVID-19 crisis.

In a Facebook page named ‘Ang Layag’, photos of a teacher serving in the frontlines were shared to honor his deed. Sir Edmon Merciales is a teacher at Cupang National High School, a public school in Antipolo City.

But because he is also n army reservist with the 405th Rizal Community Defense Center, Sir Edmon did not just stay at home like everyone else. Instead, he joined other army reservists to provide support for cops and soldiers manning the checkpoints in their city.

Isang guro sa CNHS, nagsilbing frontliners din

Kilala bilang isang guro sa Cupang National High School si G. Edmon Merciales. Ngunit sa likod nito, pinatunayan niya na hindi hadlang ang iba pang gampanin at pagiging guro sa oras ng tungkulin bilang isang Laang Kawal o Reservist ng 405th Rizal Community Defense Center na layuning tumulong at puksain ang epidemyang lumalaganap sa ating bansa.

Sa likod ng mga itinuturing na balakid naging inspirasyon ito sa mga i-ilang gurong determinadong maging isang ‘frontliners’ ‘tulad ni G. Merciales na malugod na nagsisilbi’t tumutulong sa bansa at sa kap’wa mamamayang Pilipino.

Wala mang kasiguraduhang ligtas sa bangis ng COVID-19 handang isugal ng ating mga fronliners ang kanilang mga buhay masiguro lang na tayo’y ligtas sa panganib at isa na rito si G. Merciales.
