Cavite Board Member Kevin Anarna used to have classes in a pig pen
One of Cavite Board Member Kevin Anarna’s earliest classrooms was a pig pen.
Anarna shard this tidbit as he looked back in his days as an elementary school student following a visit from his former teacher Olive Cotoner.
In a Facebook post, Anarna said he had been a student of the Rural Improvement Club Children Center of the Department of Agriculture.
It did not have proper classrooms back then, so their teacher taught their lessons in a room that used to house pigs.
But he said it was more important the students actually learn something.
He thanked his teacher for her efforts and said that without her, he would not have been a lawyer.
The quality of the teaching is more important than the facilities!
“Alam nyo ba na ang una kong classroom ay isang ulbo o kulungan ng baboy?
Siya po si Maam Olive Cotoner, ang first formal teacher ko noong bata ako. Ako po ay naging estudyante ng RICCC or Rural Improvement Club Children Center ng Department of Agriculture. Wala pa po noon na maayos na classroom, kaya tyaga muna sa dating ulbo ng baboy. Kahit saan pa magaral, ang importante ay matuto at magpursige sa pagaaral.
Salamat po binisita nyo po ako sa aking tanggapan. Hindi po siguro ako magiging abugado kung wala pong Ma’am Olive na nagturo sakin.
