Teacher who just teaches what he wants to teach in the classroom without any communication with students cannot be considered as a good teacher. If teacher does not try to build a relationship with students, students will not listen to what teacher says to them.

Mrs. Kim was my favorite teacher and also my favorite mentor. I always went to her when I have a question and problem. She always welcomed me with smile and was willing to offer me her times. When I talked with her, all my problems flew away and found the perfect answer for me. She was also my spiritual mentor. When I was having spiritually down moment, she found me and prayed for me. Furthermore, she gave Bible verse to students to encourage them. It was amazing to see her using Bible verses to encourage non-Christian students. She evangelized and spread the Gospel to students by being an example and as well as directly giving them a Bible verses. I thought that I also want to become a teacher and mentor who can show the Jesus in my behavior and spread a gospel to my students through my job,
