Q:

Why do we need teachers?

A:

Teachers are needed to provide guidance, mentorship, knowledge and assessment for students enrolled in schools. Quality teachers provide students with a role model, an advocate and a resource while they pursue an education.

An effective teacher can have an impact on a student's career path and personal motivation in and out of the classroom. Quality teachers have formal training, dedicate time to prepare lessons and goals for students and foster a learning environment that can inspire students to want to learn. Teachers are needed to prompt students to think critically, explore diverse areas of knowledge, practice hands-on experiments and labs and to provide assessment for student's work to encourage improvement.
