Teachers virtually play an essential role in one’s education. When it comes to which most vital quality should a teacher possesses,  I prefer a teacher stimulating me to contact the outside world by myself.

First, the encouragement to contact the whole world in one’s own efforts will leave long-term instructive enlightenment to students.  Teachers should bring to students more than knowledge. If a teacher provides more opportunities for his students to be curious and leads them to their own way of learning, then students would gradually think, on their own initiative, about everything novel. In this way,  after stepping into society, those students are more likely to be successful. The reason is that they are capable of considering everything from all perspectives, helping him solve any difficulties efficiently. Thus, it will benifit students for life no matter where they are and what they are doing.

Second, although teachers sometimes give some suggestions on students’ future plans, I couldn’t imagine how feasible they will be. Since if given an applicable and perfect arrangement of one’s unpredictable life, the person has to know himself well. High-school students, in fact, lack this key premise.  As a result, such ability should not be the priority of teachers.

What’s more, admittedly, answering students’ questions is the most frequent and common thing teachers do; however, it’s merely a simple task. If someone wants to be a teacher, he must be expert at his professional field. Also, under the modern education system, teachers are forced to make progress constantly, like publishing theses and attending teaching competitions. Without progression, there is no possibility that the salary would be on the rise. To improve the living standard, most teachers are undoubtedly inclined to try their best to continuously advance their knowledge storage and teaching methods. In this case, solving problems for students is a piece of cake. Thus, this ability is a basic one, not a significant one.

To conclude, I believe that a sophisticated teacher should boast the ability to motivate students to learn the outside world by themselves. After all, students will benefit from this in the future.
