An outstanding Alternative Learning System (ALS) teacher from Camalig, Albay received international and national recognition for her unwavering commitment to provide education to the Out of School Youths (OSY) and underprivileged children of Camalig and Jovellar, Albay during the times of the COVID-19 outbreak.
 
On January 30, 2023, in Okada Manila, Mrs. Ana Marie Herrera-Jacob will get another honor: the Asia’s Royalty Award for Most Empowered Educator in the Alternative Learning System of the Year.
 
The distinction she will soon accept is intended for those who played important roles during the above-stated pandemic.
 
She claimed that her advocacy and readiness to offer assistance during the pandemic were the requirements for this award.
 
Jacob was hailed last year as Asia’s Most Splendid and Inspiring ALS Teacher of the Year and Outstanding Educator of the Year for National and International level.
 
“Kung ang doctor ay taga dugtong ng buhay, ang ALS teacher ay taga dugtong ng pangarap”, she added.
