A 35-year-old teacher from Buyos Elementary School in Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte transformed his ordinary classroom to a very relaxing and elegant classroom for Php 20,000.00 only.
Special Education Teacher Cyrell Sidlao spent two months of work to do his classroom make over. He painted the walls white and installed a wallpaper with geometric design. He also installed vinyl tiles to his classroom floors to give it an elegant look.
He also painted the walls with leaves. According to Teacher Cyrell, he wanted his classroom to be ready once face-to-face classes resume.
“I’m teaching children with disabilities, ‘yung binigay na sa akin ang room assignment. Medyo hindi po maaliwalas and it has a big impact po sa children with disabilities. I want a room na ‘yung pagpasok ng learners ko, nakikita nila na malinis and relaxing, malaking factor ‘yun sa learning ng learners. So I did a makeover,” Sidlao said.
He shouldered the cost of the makeover and did the work every weekend for two months.
“[The cost of the makeover] was from my own expenses and it cost less than P20,000,” he said.
