    I found love, friendship, guidance and discipline in one person and that's you. Thank you teacher, for reaching deep in me to find all I can be before I could. You never gave up on me. I have a future now because of you. Thank you teacher,your my unsung hero/heroine.

    A teacher deserves to get a crown and claimed to be the hardest job ever! It's all not about the job, it's about their sincerity to educate us to become a nurtured student. There is nothing we can pay for them except their smiles when we get flying colours :)

    Thank you for always supporting and showing me the right way. Thank you for continuously inspiring me to do my best. I found a poem in Pinterest. I would like to share it here;

    Architects made houses

    Writers made poetry

    Scientists made discoveries

    Teachers made them all

    Teacher, It is an unexplainable memories and experience that I had when I had you as my English teacher before. U ‘light’ me up, guide me and hold my hand, when others just only give me a torchlight to survive in the darkness. U lead me back to the lane when I started to drift out from my path of studies. U always put a hope on your student and let them be the best as they could. If u are a person to the people, u are the world to ur student. I love u teacher and thank u for the best memories. I did enjoy my school’s life! 💌🥰 thanks teacher @nnrcy

    Teacher, you are the reason I excel in what I do. I wouldn’t be who I am today if weren’t for you. You are our heroes.

    Dear Sir Khairul Nizam,I have been blessed that you came to my life, you are forever cherished, my dear teacher. Not everyone has the heart of roses and such dedication as you. Whatever challenges, you had to face in your life, you're still the best among the best. On this day, I want you to fathom how wonderful, meaningful, and amazing you're. Getting up every day is exciting knowing that I’ll be spending the day with my most favorite teacher in the world. Adoration, devotion, dedication, adulation are what you have so you deserve to be celebrated.

    Happy Teacher's Day my brightest best teacher in the world! Always and forever I know, I love you and you're the best!
