In his conclusion, he quoted Ivan Welton Fitzwater which reads: “the future of the world is in my classroom today, a future with the potential for good or bad… Several future presidents are learning from me today ; so are the great writers of the next decades, and so are all the so-called ordinary people who will make the decisions in a democracy”.
Mrs. Efua Amoakwah Quansah In her address during the opening Ceremony applauded the participants for attending the workshop in their numbers to learn new things which will help enhance their classrooms deliveries. Teachers are not to rest, because the moment they rest, they will rust; And the development of every nation depends on its Education(which are Teachers) . Therefore it’s very “dangerous if a teacher should rust” because the future of the children through his/her hands will become a doom to the nation.. Hence the need for teachers to stay updated and upgraded all day, she added.
