  • Education is significant in our lives. Due to the current pandemic going on it is necessary for teachers to start online teaching. With the help of digitalization and support from the government learning from home has become easygoing for everyone. So I think that teachers must continue teaching with enthusiasm and strive together with students for the betterment of the world.
