The hilarious photo of a teacher in Misamis Oriental who took a photo of herself tilting her head sideways to check the output that a student submitted has gone viral.
It has been a common practice for teachers, particularly during the pandemic, to require students to submit their outputs online, either through email or messaging apps.
Apparently, the output submitted by one student contained an attachment that can be clearly read if it is in landscape orientation but the problem is he sent it in a portrait position.
Although the teacher, Fritzie Aileen Aratan-Puray of Gingoog City in Misamis Oriental undoubtedly knew how to correct the orientation by downloading it and rotating the attachment either to the left or right, she left it as it is and decided to take a photo.

Positioning her head sideways to the screen to allow her to see the output in its proper orientation, Ms. Aratan-Puray then took a photo of herself in that position and posted it online along with an appeal.
“Dearest students, please naman sana pag nag-submit kayo ng output, tingnan nyo muna kung nasa maayos at tamang position para wag naman mabali leeg ko, nagmamahal, inyong teacher,” Ms. Aratan-Puray wrote in the description section of her post.
The post has a double purpose.
The first is to send a message to the students about the things that a teacher goes through just to adjust to the students’ habits and behavior.
The second is to spread good vibes among her students, particularly during the first week of school where everyone needs a laugh amid stressful situations.
It seems that she achieved both as her students, including the one who sent the output, got the message and enjoyed a great deal of laughter in the process.
As of this writing, the post has already gained 11K reacts and 15K shares.
The practice of requiring students to submit their outputs through email or messaging apps have been going on for a long time. However, it became more prevalent when the government mandated that due to the current health crisis, all classes would be conducted online. As a result, both teachers and students have to adjust to a new normal where class instructions and assignment submissions, along with quizzes and exams, were all done over the Internet.
Although online learning has many disadvantages, it is also a welcome medium for some students. Last year, a photo of a college student went viral after it showed him attending his online classes while working. While watching over some items that he sells on one corner of a sidewalk, he was also seen holding a cellphone in one hand and a ballpen on the other hand, which he uses to take down notes. Many admired the determination of the young student to go to school while earning a living amid the health crisis that struck the country.
Many teachers, while going through some difficulties themselves with online learning, also understand the things that their students go through. Previously, a senior high school teacher went viral after he took to social media to let the public know about the struggles of many students with online learning. He narrated how one of his students would rent a cellphone just to be able to attend a class. The teacher also recounted how one of the students will be late because he needed to catch fish, sell them to be able to buy prepaid Wifi load. The online class is the new teaching method in the time of the coronavirus pandemic.
