After mind blowing Inaugural session , I felt privileged that got a chance to Interact with some great personalities like Mark Levy ‘head of English programmes for the British Council in Spain’ who have a fantastic Opening plenary session on ‘Multilingual Contexts -Lessons and Reflections. Jason Anderson an award winning author & well-known educator ,in his lovely interacting workshop and in closing plenary on ‘The effective English teacher – Perception and opinions of Indian teachers.’
The great still down to earth presence of Dr. Amol Padwad sir and a special session hosted by him ‘Teachers Zara Hat Ke! -An hour with Special Teachers’ was one of the fantastic sessions of the conference . Vikram Adsul who struggled to give a quality education to the remote rural areas students , Sadeqa Ghazal and her ‘Women of Colors in ELT’ movement , Akansha Saxena and her team of ‘Basic Education Department of Noida’ & last but not the least Multi tasker , techno sevy educator Nadeem Khan sir not only inspired ,but also motivated me to overcome the problems.
Simplicity & humbleness of Hon. Amol Padwad sir makes him really a legendary , Nadeem Khan bhai’s power pack appearance is awesome as always , Krishna Dixit sir’s energy to help each and everyone without complaining is beyond the words for me , Milind Mane sir’s calm & cool existence was fantastic.

RMSA’s CHEESE Project head Hon. Ranjit Deshmukh sir’s presence and his keen observation with motivating words of appreciation was an inspiration for all of us, especially the educators from Maharashtra ,India.
