I was a Teacher

Dear all,

I was a teacher.

I was the most fortunate of all who labor. I was allowed to see that life is reborn each day through new questions, ideas and friendship.

I was privileged to build something out of love and truth, and that this would stand tall within the children forever.

I was constantly in a battle against negativity, fear, ignorance and prejudice. But I have an alliance of intelligence, parental support, creativity, faith, love and laughter to support me.

Now that my time is up, I am obliged to express my deepest gratitude to you, dear parents. You have done me great honour by entrusting me your greatest contribution to eternity, your children.

I have to go, for I believe now I have to do justice to those who God has directly entrusted upon me. That is a promise worth fulfilling.

There will be days when I will reminisce this sweet memory, of the tears and laughter that have made me who I am now.

And I hereby proudly testify that I too, have done my part in moulding the future. I too, have lent a hand in building this nation of virtues.

Thank you for the trust given to me.

I was a teacher, but deep in me, I believe I will always be a teacher, ad infinitum.

This is where my life begins...


Kak Teh said...

Mimi said...

Dear Ida, u r very lucky coz u da ada 'investment' on an 'amalan yang berpanjangan' coz being a teacher is one of 'amal jariah yang berpanjangan'...

May u succeed in everything that u do..insyaAllah

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Mimi,

I am lucky to have invested for my akhirat..

U take care

DrSam said...

Teaching is always a noble profession.I am sure you'll be missed by many.

I wish you all the best and may the grass is always greener on the other side.

Mom dah retired 5 years ago, but she still received invitation for class reunion frm her students ranging from class of 80's until the year she left.Not to mentioned Raya cards and Teacher's Day card.

I really think your students will remember u forever.

p/s : Teacher, when is the tuition class?? Nak enroll anak ni

edelweiss said...

Cikgu...[gelaran tuh akan lekatttt sampai bila-2]

mcm kata kak teh,sekali jadik cikgu selama u tetap seorang cikgu...[betoi ka translation i nih???]

dah halalkan ker ilmu-2 yang u ajar kat anak-2 murid ida? Insyallah bila u halalkan...berkattt ilmu yang dia org dapat. :)

All the best okay...!

p/s: [dah berenti cikgu JGN pulak berenti blogging :P]

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

Ida, mari lah, saya nak beri award, kata Pak Malim sambil masuk ward. Ida tak nak award ke, kata ungka. Ok, kalau tak nak, tak apa, kata Pak Malim sambil duduk bertapa. Then, how bout giving ME an award, kata Pak Malim yg masih dalam ward. (Cedera parah, kena belasah sebab suka minta hadiah kat orang, kata Pak Malim sambil memegang parang)

madam gold said...

Ida,I 'm sad because one good teacher has left this noble profession.I m sure you will be missed by all your students.
All the best in your future undertaking... whatever area it may be.

tireless mom said...

I will always call you Ticha Ida. Hubby was a teacher 20 years ago and he still is because yang kenal dia since then, semua call him Cikgu. Such a noble profession. Too bad you have to leave it. Tak pe, rezki lain adalah kat mana mana tu

Faa said...

puan ida, we'll miss you :'(
[from 4 CEKAL 2009]

mamasita said...

Cikgu Ida?
Yes you'll always be that pretty Cikgu Ida! Your students takkan lupa you and their parents will always address you as Cikgu.
And now..I doa you'll start the chapter of your life that you've always been dreaming of and May ALLAH SWT Bless You and Your Family with more happiness than you can ever imagine!

Naz said...

Good Luck, Ida :)

Hairudy said...

all the best 2 u sis.... :))

nissa said...

Good bye my friend..we'll be missing u a lot..don't forget us here..may u succeed in your future undertaking..and may all your dreams will come true..Insya Allah..

sherry said...


All the best in segalanya.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Dr. Sam and Fairy,

Tq for the good luck wish. I hope life will be grteat for u too..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Kak Eja,

I ni mana je dah resign, but keje sekolah masih kena settle..ni I tgh busy train budak debates ni..we are going to the octofinals tomorrow, i beleive we would be able to make through the finals, last year we were the first runner up.

Nanti tuition ni fees dia kira sedara punya rate la ye..nanti saya kira berapa untung i dapat..hahha

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Miss Edelweiss,

I dah lama halalkan ilimu i share dgn they all..only that I hope they all would forgive for the times I really had NO MOOD of teaching sebab teringatkan banyak keje lain yg kena settle..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Pak Malim the Taurian cat,

Tak kesian ke minta saya belikan hadiah, saya mana ada bergaji lagi, kata Ida sebelum menggosok gigi.

Pak Malaim yang kena belanja saya, kata Ida sambil berendam dalam paya..eee..banyak pacat!

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Madam Gold and Tireless Mom,

Yup, you can still call me Ticha Ida..mostly the kids call me Puan Ida, I punya la particular pasal this addressing thingy, I tak gemar dipanggil just "Cikgu"..too general la..

Anyway, I have gained valuable experience during my 5 years teaching at one of the nations's best schools..

I wish you all the best in your future undertakings too.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...


Betul ke u all miss me? U study smart, ok..

See u all again for the farewell thingy at school..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Datin Mama,

I am very lucky for having a good relationship with the parents (particularly the PIBG exco). I wish to be as dedicated as they are to their children's alma mater.

U take care, Datin..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Kak Naz,

Tq, madam.

Dear Hairudy,

Welcome to my blog. I am glad that u droped by as I will need your service for this thing that I am working on..will contact you soon..:)

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Tq sherry..all the best to u too, dear

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Nissa,

SAB teachers are the best colleagues that a person could have. I betul-betul sedih tinggalkan u all, but tak dapat nak bantu ringankan stress and pressure u all.

I cried during my farewell speech at the Bilik Guru (before jamuan breakfast Nasi Dagang), I cried again when I hugged Kalai as she gave me a farewell gift..masa tu in the kantin..hahha..

I hope this Friday punya farewell masa assembly, I tak nangis lagi..I ni memang Drama Queen, nampak macam tough, but senang tersentuh..

Since semalam, I have been with the school debaters for the competition, I mau they become champions this year as last year lagi satu step nak jadi juara..wish us luck.

I has been great knowing you. You are so kind and humble, even though your batik are all very nice ones..ala Datin2 gitu..hehhe

lenzaidi said...

Sigh.;-( you are leaving.

Good things never last,
a nice person, friend, collegue, buddy and gossy partner never stay long ;-).

Whats good we crossed path and found each other amidst the madness of SAB.

Your leaving made us feel a little sad, void for a moment this heart was, a sudden emptiness surge inside me as i passed your last desk this afternoon...
But I knew you will be striving elsewhere too, and I knew you will never ever forget us.

Adious me Amor.

Uncle Lee said...

Hello Ida Hariati, I am sure thru your hands and the knowledge you handed down to your students, when they become leaders in their individual fields, your name will live uppermost in their minds.
They will remember you and how you made them today.

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'.

In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day's work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.

Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.
My best regards and wishes to your future. Lee.

Lyana Mauseth said...

hai ida, finally tiba waktunya jugak kan...so how do u feel? ada lega skit? gud luck for whatever u choose to do next :D

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Dear Wallpapesrdeco,

Tq for visiting. I saw ur work, wah very nice la..u've so much talents..

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Bonjour Lee,

Good to have u around. Teaching is a noble job, indeed, but too much of nitty-gritty stuff bores me.

I will always be a teacher. I can say that I have had a good experience working at the one of the best schools in Malaysia!

U take care Lee..:)

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Lyana..thak God u r back..so now kita seri la ye..selamat mengdecorate umah baru..take care, darling

Famira Amir said...

Pn Ida, though you never taught me before, I felt sad to watch you leave. =) Hope you'll get to spend more time with your dearest family. =)
