ACTNews, CIAMIS – It’s not easy to remain steadfast in teaching if one only receives a little salary for her work. In a such condition, one’s focus is divided between dedicating to teaching and working to make ends meet.

For Hana Musobihah (65), however, this has never been a problem. For forty-five years, the woman who lives in Hegarmanah Village, Cidolog District, Ciamis Regency, has dedicated herself to teaching despite receiving only IDR 150,000 a month and having to walk three kilometers every day to work.

She never tries to find other jobs to make ends meet. After teaching at the school, she teaches at a madrasa until late afternoon. After maghrib, she continues teaching Quran to local children.

“I am determined to dedicate my life to education and teaching. Though what I receive isn’t much, it’s enough, Alhamdulillah. The parents and guardians often give me assistance,” said Hana to Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Ciamis, Wednesday (12/1/2021).

Hana then said that many of the students she used to teach have become government officials, entrepreneurs, and private employees. To her, her greatest joy is seeing her students succeed in life.

“To teachers like me, true happiness is when seeing our students succeed. It means that what we have taught is beneficial to them,” said Hana. []
