    Theme: Building the Spirit of Professional's Builder

    Hello, everyone!

    I need some help here.

    I think there is really something 'awkward' about this phrase.

    "Building the Spirit of Professional's Builder."

    My gut tells me there is, and I just want to know if I'm right.

    Re: Theme: Building the Spirit of Professional's Builder

    I got this from a friend's facebook status. The phrase is supposed to be the theme of an upcoming event next week, but I have my doubts. Can you share me your thoughts?

    P.S.

    Professional's Builder is intended to refer to teachers---the builders of professionals.

    The designation, Professional Builder, should not have an apostrophe 's' and there should be a 'the' in front.
    The word 'spirit' is vague, it means a lot of things.

    not a teacher

    It could be a title, such as "Building the Spirit of Professional Builders."
