To say that Education is important is an understatement. Education is a weapon to improve one’s life. It is the most important instrument to change one’s future. Education for a child begins at home, and it is a life – long process.
Education certainly determines the quality of an individual's life. It improves one’s knowledge, skills, and develops one's personality and attitude. Most noteworthy, education affects the chances of employment for people. A highly educated individual is probably very likely to get a good job. It is extremely important for employment, for it provides an opportunity for somebody to make a decent living due to the skills he or she acquired through education.
Better communication is yet another vital skill one can develop in education. Education improves and refines the speech of a person to become a better communicator to the people around. Furthermore, good oral and written communication skills not only build a good relationship but also provide a significant advantage in one's career. To do one's job effectively, he or she has to discuss problems, request information, interact with others, and have good human relations skills.

Finally, education enables individuals to express their views efficiently. Educated individuals can explain their opinions in a clear manner. Hence, educated people are quite likely to convince people to their point of view.

The ideal teacher is the one we respect from our hearts. He or she serves as a guide to the learners without putting so much pressure on them on doing tasks. He or she motivates and boosts students' morale and refrain from criticizing them.
Such a teacher shows students the right path under all circumstances and never shies away from duty. Moreover, he or she is always there by the student’s side in times of need. Some students may not always have parents beside them to offer some pieces of advice, but they still need an adult’s opinion on this matter, and teachers can become the parents' backup who can give tips and some words of encouragement.
An ideal teacher never lets the limitations of his or her student restrict their vision. He or she consistently motivates them to reach ahead and broaden their horizon. A teacher should encourage and inspire the students to think beyond their confines and help them realize their talents as well as the need to pursue them with diligence.
In conclusion, all teachers should take the time to get to know who their students are. They might even be surprised at the outcome. Knowing their students well helps them become closer to each other; that way, it will be easier for the teacher to solve any problems that occur in the classroom. Both parties, the teacher and the students who have developed mutual understanding can eventually sustain the harmonious relationship they have with one another. The teacher can even become their students' idol or even superhero for being a good mentor and motivator to his or her students.
