Elementary Student Proudly Shares Mom’s Cooking at School
A elementary student proudly shared his mom’s cooking and touched the hearts of the online community.
Ralf Louis Sanchez, a Facebook user, shared the photo of a student from Fernando F. Gonzaga Elementary School in Brgy. Vista Alegre flexes his mother’s cooking. The post garnered various reactions from the internet users.
The grade 3 teacher shared a heart-to-heart conversation with his eight-year-old student, John. During their chat, Mr. Sanchez asked John about his favorite homemade dish. The young boy excitedly shared the meal his mother prepared.
Mr. Sanchez, touched by the student’s pride in his mother’s cooking, commended John and noted how wonderful it was that his mother still took the time to cook for him.
John responds “Oo sir kay gina buligan ko siya pang himos sa balay kag panag-ob sa suba kung manglaba siya”.
(Yes, sir, because I help her with chores at home, like cleaning and going to the river to fetch water when she does the laundry)
To further encourage John, Mr. Sanchez decided to give him some money to buy vegetables to accompany the small fish dish. The teacher emphasized that not only do students learn from their teachers, but teachers can also learn valuable lessons from their students.
According to Mr. Sanchez, John is an active participant in class discussions and is known for his kindness. The teacher expressed his gratitude for what God has given him and encouraged everyone to strive for education as a means to overcome challenges.
