The series is presented in essays written by a number of Indonesian teachers. RISE intends to capture the experience of young teachers from their perspective in the series of Stories of Beginning Teachers in their First Years of being a Teacher.
As a child, I never dreamed of becoming a teacher. I just trust the flow of life. I still clearly remember the advice from a Muslim scholar: Whosoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. Because of that, I have always been passionate about going to school and studying.
