Teacher Brings Good Vibes Online for Offering Unique Choices in Exam Reviewer
A male teacher goes viral online and elicits various reactions from netizens for giving unique choices to exam review materials.
Tom Labonete, a Facebook user, shared a photo featuring a question from one of his exam review materials. The post quickly spread after it was posted on social media and garnered comments from the online community.
Tom, a nurse and teacher from Baguio said that pursuit of knowledge often carries a sense of seriousness. He presents concept-based and serious questions that students might encounter during board exams.
However, he decided to break the ice and bring some joy to the students by including humorous items to make them smile.
“Taga-Baguio po ako,, nagle-lecture po ako sa iba’t ibang review centers. In between my lectures ay nagpapakita po ako ng questions, yung mga pinapakita kong questions ay serious, concept based, and board exam- like questions. But to break the ice and para matuwa po sila ay nagpapakita ako ng mga items na may humor para mapangiti sila,” Labonete said.
Labonete’s teaching method is a breath of fresh air in an educational scene that can be overly serious at times. He is a firm believer that learning does not always have to be a depressing experience. A sense of humor can sometimes help to balance the scales.

“Naniniwala po ako na hindi natin kailangang magseryoso sa pag-aaral palagi, minsan bigyan din natin ng konting saya para balance. Pero hindi naman po palagi ay jokes ang lecture ko, seryoso po ako magturo kaya binabawi ko nalang po sa mga ganitong paraan,” he added.
