His Majesty King Abdullah II inaugurated the Queen Rania Teacher Academy (QRTA) new building in the University of Jordan, with the presence of Queen Rania Al Abdullah on Sunday, January 27, 2019.
Queen Rania expressed her joy and appreciation via her official Twitter account, saying:
“It is with great joy that we mark the inauguration of the teacher training academy’s new premises today as a gateway for educators towards new horizons in education and learning.
Congratulations to the University of Jordan, which has today expanded its academic arsenal by welcoming the teacher training academy among the faculties of this esteemed institution.
Over the past 20 years, I have met with thousands of teachers. I saw in each of them the hopes of an entire generation – the collective ambitions of parents, and the future of a nation. That is why we established the teacher training academy.
There is no one more worthy of our resources, time, and effort than the person standing at the front of the classroom – the teacher who spends a third of her day with our children, and who imparts principles and values to them alongside math and language skills.
The lucky ones among us find someone to inspire them and push them toward their goal. I am fortunate to have found that in the person closest to me, His Majesty King Abdullah II, and I am honored to be his lifelong companion.
I know you never wait for a word of thanks. Even so, from myself and on behalf of every student, father, mother, teacher, and principal – thank you, King Abdullah II. If not for your vast heart – where every child can find a home – this academy would not have seen the light.”
