By Ralph John Mijares and Edalyn Acta

ROXAS CITY — Teachers continue to adopt the challenges brought by distance learning due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Newly-installed Department of Education Capiz assistant district schools superintendent Jose Niro Nillasca said that the distance and face-to-face learning formats are not the same.

“We have to accept that the delivery and performance of the students would not be the same,” Nillasca said.

“Given the limited time nga may direct engagement ang teacher and students, hindi maihambing sa face-to-face sa distance learning,” he added.

“Aton ginafocusan ang minimum competencies nga applicable sa times of emergency,” Nillasca also said.

He advised the teachers to remain strong despite being weary physically and mentally due to the challenges brought by the pandemic.

“If ma-surrender, affected ang other sectors,” Nillasca said.

He added, “extra time, extra effort, extra energy must be given to those students who are lagging.”*
