Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo believes teachers are also modern day heroes for their efforts in teaching students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an October 5 Facebook post to mark World Teacher’s Day, Quimbo vowed to push for legislation promoting teachers’ welfare in Congress.

“Bilib po ako sa ipinapakita ninyong malasakit para makapagbigay ng maayos na edukasyon kahit na may mga hamong dulot ng pandemya. Tunay na mga bayani kayo!” she said.

“Maaasahan po ninyo na patuloy ko pong isusulong na mabigyan ng proteksiyon ang bawat isa sa inyo at pati na ang pagtaas ng inyong suweldo, benepisyo, at insentibo,” Quimbo added.

The lawmaker, who used to be a professor at the University of the Philippines, thanked teachers for their service.
