Flavia’s teaching journey started in Kyambogo University where she trained as a teacher of Biology and Chemistry. Having spent a year in a more affluent private school in Kampala, Uganda, Flavia found her true calling teaching in Watoto schools, which are Christian schools whose main population is rescued children. With outstanding passion and enthusiasm, she was soon promoted to heading one of these secondary schools. As Principal, Flavia was able to make major turnarounds in her school’s pedagogy, student discipline and teacher motivation. In 2019, she was one of the four Ugandan teachers awarded the Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching Program Scholarship, where she participated in a 5-month practical teacher training course at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Upon her return, she was passionate about training teachers with a growth mindset in education, and she has been able to reach over 400 teachers in Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda in the past year. She is currently the head of the Post Primary and Tertiary education in Watoto Education. Her dream is to see education in her country transformed through empowering teachers with the right skills and tools for effective teaching.
