"Creativity and Innovation helps to propel a teacher's vision" this where one of his words on being visionary 
He urged the teachers to be a risk taker "You must be willing to take calculated risks and some times surrender yourself to the students' knowledge" he said.

The seminar was experience filled as teachers shares their experience on different type of students they have.
On Modeling Behavior he opined that "There is an expectation that teachers will teach values, so we model the behaviors that we expect from our students" He said in conclusion that a teacher that doesn't change with the times, will get changed to obsolescence with time.
