ACTNews, BANTUL – Teachers’ happiness is not only measured through their wealth as felt by Margiyanta, an honorary teacher in Timbulharjo, Sewon District, Bantul Regency. His disappointment over his low income will immediately vanish when the blissful moments occur.
“The happiest thing about being a teacher is when I meet my students who have graduated and are already working the best institutions. I am also proud when I see them having a successful career, whether they become entrepreneurs, private employees, or civil servants," said Margiyanta, Tuesday (10/14/2021).
Apart from happiness, there is also sadness faced by Margiyanta such as when teachers in arms have become Civil Servants (PNS) or Government Employees with Work Agreements (PPPK).
“I am sad for haven’t been able to reach that point and still have to struggle and work harder. In the end, all I need is to keep being grateful,” said Margiyanta.
In order to ease the burden of honorary teachers in Bantul, on Thursday (10/14/2021) Global Zakat-ACT delivered food aid and financial assistance. Hopefully, can bring happiness to honorary teachers and keep struggling to educate the nation’s future.
