12 September 2013

Any good educator would be glad to know that his (or her) students have achieved something worthwhile in life. Any good school principal or educational administration professional would be happy to find his (or her) junior colleagues rising up their career ladders. A few days back, I had pleasure of knowing that Mr Boubakar Mamane, an English language teacher from Niger, whom I mentored, qualified for the Certificate of Teaching Mastery offered by Teachers Without Borders. Mamane serves as HOD (English) as well in his school. I'm glad that I could contribute to TWB's aims and objectives.

My published works include 59 articles in teacher development magazines in India and the US and a book entitled `Creative Classrooms and Child Friendly Schools' (listed in Amazon).
