Girl Marries Former Physics Teacher after Finding Him on Instagram

Let’s admit it, we’ve all had experienced having a crush on our teachers back in our younger years. Of course, these childhood crushes remain as secret admiration to that beautiful or handsome teacher we see in school every day; this rarely progressed to a full-blown relationship, especially because this is strictly prohibited in most schools.

But the love story of a Physics teacher and his former student recently went viral, with people gushing over the sweet way they fell in love.

Four years ago, Muhammad Shamsul Bahari was the Physics teacher at a private tuition center in Kulim, Kedah in Malaysia where Intan Syazwani Mohd Hairizan was studying.

At the time, there were a lot of students who admired the teacher, including Intan, but he was married at the time and they were his students, of course, so he never pursued a relationship with anyone.

Fast forward to 4 years later, Intan who is now 20 years old, found 32-year-old Shamsul Bahari on Instagram at the beginning of 2018.

The teacher had no idea that Intan was a former student because she had changed a lot in the years that passed.

Shamsul Bahari’s interest on Intan started when she replied to one of his Instastories, writing, “Teacher, handsome.

Now separated from his wife, Shamsul Bahari pursued Intan. When they met in person, he was touched at how easily Intan and his 6-year-old daughter got along.

I can see that she is really loving and really cares about my daughter, and none of it is fake,” Shamsul Bahari said.

He added that there had been quite a number of women who were interested in him after he got divorced with his first wife but none appeared to show interest in his daughter. Intan was different from these other women.

So, despite the 12-year age gap, the two fell in love. The two got married last August 18 at the Al Jamiul Makmur Mosque in Kulim and quite understandably many of Shamsul Bahari’s students were there to witness the moment and wish the couple good fortune.

Their love story also went viral on social media. It’s cute, right?

But she is also set her eyes on a bigger goal in the future: becoming a cop.

I want to help my family and others. I’m not scared to be a police officer. I want to protect my community especially against illegal d***s,” Cristy declared.

Barefoot Student Goes Viral for Giving Bananas as Gift to Teacher Assigned in the Mountains

Living in the mountains, a kid named Manuel still has to walk far to go to school, but this did not stop him from going to his classes, anyway, even if that meant being so late at times. What’s even sadder, this kid does not have money to buy slippers, yet he tries his best to go to school, anyway.

Recently, Manuel went viral after giving his teacher a sweet gift of bananas, most likely fresh from their yard!

Bananas for the Teacher

Ryan James Dueñas, a teacher assigned in the mountains, understands the difficulties that his students experience on a daily basis. Many of the kids have to walk far to school and most don’t have enough resources to buy the things they need for school. That’s he always aims to be understanding of his class.

One day, Manuel arrived in school very late for the class. They had already completed the prelim activities and done with their 30-minute reading intervention. The kid knew he was very late and might get in trouble; so, he shyly stayed outside until the class noticed that he was there.

They quickly informed Teacher Ryan who let the kid in. He was late but Manuel was welcome to the class.

But as he continued with their lesson in English, Teacher Ryan noticed that Manuel was not paying attention. He was busy with something in his bag. Because he wanted the kid to listen properly and catch up on their lesson, Teacher Ryan called him out.

The teacher was surprised, however, when the kid brought out a bunch of bananas from his bag – and gave this to the teacher! Apparently, the kid was grateful for the teacher’s kindness to him and his classmates.

Shoes for the Student

Licensed Teacher Becomes Waiter in Kuwait, Admits Feeling Down but Shares Success Story

He graduated from Secondary Education major in English in De La Salle University-Dasmariñas, one of the prestigious universities in the Philippines in 2015. But though he is a Licensed Professional Teacher, netizen “JM Papa” would become a waiter in Kuwait.

Admitting to feeling down over what he had gone through, JM Papa would later share his success story in a Facebook post that quickly went viral.

According to him, he was a consistent 100% university scholar and government scholar, too. He was also quite active in school, involved in various activities from singing, dancing, acting, leading, cheerleading, and so much more.

From Teacher to Waiter

Despite being a professional, he found himself working as waiter in a casual-dining restaurant in Kuwait.

From a high-achieving individual to a waiter. When I started working as a waiter, my co-workers were always questioning my decision. You could’ve been teaching in a public school in the PH but why did you choose to be a waiter in Kuwait. It’s solely because of my dream not only for myself but most especially for my family,” he lamented.

He was quick to explain that he’s not putting waiters down, but actually respects them. Yet as a teacher, he felt that he could have done better. But as the months passed and he was able to build a house for his family in a gated subdivision, he felt so much better. After all, the waiter job in Kuwait paid twice the salary of a public school teacher in the Philippines.

From Waiter to HR Coordinator

Yet JM Papa admitted that he felt down and lost his self-confidence, especially because he wasn’t recognized as a good worker at his job. He didn’t have the courage to apply for a higher position. Thankfully, he managed to overcome that eventually.

He got hired as Human Resource (HR) Coordinator at a prestigious general trading & construction company in Kuwait. This definitely helps him feel more confident now – and certainly pays a better job than being a waiter.
