Our school, Help Liberia Foundation Community School, located in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, has ended a two-day teachers’ refresher workshop on the school campus.
The workshop, which was held on Monday and Tuesday – September 3rd and 4th, respectively – was aimed at feeding the teachers with some professional food that will enable them to professionally impact knowledge unto the children, as the school begins another academic year.
The exercise brought together the school’s teachers and administrators, both old and new, as well as some of the old and experienced hands in the teaching profession. Catherine Gill-Jamieson, a volunteer teacher and International Contact Person of the school, was also in attendance.
Topics treated at the workshop included the following: Lesson Planning, Teaching Methodology, Testing & Evaluation, Classroom Management and the Importance of Good/Correct English in the Classroom.
Serving as facilitators/lecturers were Mr. Solomon Gbargee, proprietor of the Kids & Us Daycare, who lectured on Classroom Management; Mr. Augustus N. Karyor, the County Education Officer (DEO) of Grand Bassa County, who presented lectures on Lesson Planning and Teaching Methodology; Mr. Joseph Garneo, Jr., former Principal of Bethel World Outreach Elementary School and Administrative Assistant at the W. P. L. Brumskine High School, who spoke on Testing & Evaluation; Mr. Paul Yeenie Harry, Director of HLF School, who, along with Catherine Gill-Jamieson, spoke on the Importance of Good/Correct English in the Classroom.
At the end of the exercise, Mr. Harry thanked the facilitators for their lectures, the teachers for their participation and the cooks for preparing delicious dishes for all. The teachers, on the other hand, thanked the administration of the school for organizing the workshop and for affording them the opportunity to participate, promising to utilize in the classroom what they acquired during the workshop.
The school reopens for the new school year tomorrow, 10th September.
