    Which is the best?

    I am a teacher of English. I have many students as well as many questions they ask. I can answer some questions, but not others. Now I have some questions I can't answer. Please help me, teachers.
    She is of importance for me.
    She is important for me.
    Which sentence is the best? Which sentence sounds right to a native speaker? Which sentence is more common for a native speaker?
    Thank you for your answer.
    May you be happy, healthy and wealthy!

    Use 'to' here, WM.

    She is of [great] importance to me.


    She is important to me.

    Neither is best. Both mean the same thing.

    Thank you for your answer.
