Marawi hostage survivor, teachers shares story of hope and survival in Judy Ann's 'Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan'
Four teachers share their inspiring stories about how their love for teaching served as their strength amid difficult times in last night's (Nov. 21) episode of “Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan” on A2Z channel, which is now seen on digital TV boxes such as ABS-CBN TVplus.
Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo’s docu-drama tells the stories of Lordvinn Acopio, Aljo Catedral, Michael Brizal, and Jonathan Almirante, teachers turned modern-day heroes who have helped each other through challenges and proved that religion should not hinder one’s right to education.
Lordvinn, one of the hostages during the 2017 Marawi siege, was forced to play the role of a doctor in order to save his life. Aljo, his co-teacher, was able to escape Marawi and assured Lordvinn’s family that their son would make it out alive.
Aljo, meanwhile, pays tribute to a friend who helped him realize his passion for teaching, while Michael will share his own traumatic experience in Marawi and starting over in a new city.
The episode also sheds light on Jonathan’s pursuit to solve the massive flooding in a public school in Cavite, where he is a grade three science teacher. By solving the flooding issue in their school, Jonathan hopes to provide a better learning environment for his students.
