You don't in general, the teacher has done it this way because she has not used a relative element such as a div or header element, or she is showing another way of doing it. This is what I think anyway.

No problem, your welcome. I suggest that if you haven't already, take a look at the html basics course and css basics course. You will get a better understanding about it.
