The quality of teachers as people and as citizens is a condition for building and making the prospect of our national and European dreams successful. And this quality of ours as people and citizens is based on our education, social sensitivity, skills and our participation in evaluative processes.

We will design programs with an aura of innovation and an aroma of excellence, and with all these dreams and our reflections the tower of innovation will be built, the harbor that will safely anchor our own dreams and our own pedagogical ambitions.

The knowledge of pedagogy and the understanding that one must build on what has been applied and proven to be successful is a necessary condition that can get us out of stagnation. And I say this because if we stand still we will grow old…, we will perish…
And if this happens, then Greece will be reduced to begging. I personally don’t want us to become beggars. I want us to be torchbearers and innovators. To be bathed in the light of educational innovation, meritocracy and academic distinction.
That’s the only way we’ll survive. Only in this way will we be proud of who we are and taste the ambrosia and nectar not of the Olympian Gods, but of ordinary people who know how to transform physical and spiritual toil into a supreme good, which is distributed to all people, who participate in process of giving and creating.
