Teachers at Central Abaco Primary attend motivational session

After almost two months of vacation, public school teachers all across the Bahamas returned to work on Monday August 27, 2012. In most of these schools a motivational session was held on this day to get teachers fired up for the new school year. On Abaco, the same took place and the forty plus teachers at Central Abaco Primary School heard from gifted author and pastor of Change Ministries International Samuel Cornish. Mr. Cornish spoke to them about the importance of speaking into the life of the students they teach. He told them that this topic is dear to him because when he was in school he did not hear the encouraging words he should have from his teachers. In fact, he stated that based on the words he heard, he was not supposed to succeed in life. However, he did not embrace those words and is now a success. He told the teachers that mentoring students is part of teaching because students look up to them and listen intently to the words they speak. Therefore, they can uplift or break a child’s spirit. He appealed to them to speak positively into the lives of their students.
