This teacher from South Cotabato is currently making rounds on social media after he created a stunning classroom corner wall made from broken armchairs.
Just a day before the classes resume, Teacher Reynel Calmerin shared a post on Facebook showing how he transformed the wall of his classroom into a colorful and artistic reading corner.
He captioned the post:
“From broken chairs to my classroom wall… para klaro po, itinapon na po iyang mga upuan, kinunan na po iyan ng parts na ginamit pang–repair sa ibang upuan… at saka yang wall… sirang lababo po yan…”
Teacher Reynel graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education at the University of Southeastern Philippines in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, and is currently a Grade 6, SPED teacher at Polomolok Central Elementary School.
In the post, he clarified that all the materials he used in the classroom wall were just scraps and parts of the broken chairs from their recent “Brigada Eskwela”.
But instead of disposing of these colorful broken chairs, Teacher Reynel thought of using it for something that would be useful for his classroom.
The creative teacher included photos on how he chose and separate the pieces of woods that can still be used for his masterpiece. He can also be seen in one of the photos sitting on the ground while patiently removing the bent nails using a hammer.
After putting the recycled woods in the wall, Teacher Reynel added more artistic displays to complete the look of his classroom reading corner.
Because of this many netizens admired him for the creativity and resourcefulness he displayed.
Here are some comments from the post:
“Galing naman ni Sir! Very creative!”
“Salute to you sir! Teachers are very resourceful talaga.”
“Very creative and innovative teacher! I salute you for your ingenuity!!!”
“Sipag at tiyaga talaga ang kapital ng mga guro para umusad ang kaunlaran ng isang paaralan. Good job po sir.”
