Get to know Musinguzi Sadick
On his trip to Uganda last year, trustee Ramon visited St Matia Mulumba School and became acquainted with many students and their teachers. We'd like to share a little about these fine teachers, starting with Sadick, a Mathematics & Social Studies Teacher.
Hi Sadick, thanks for giving up some time today. Would you please tell our readers a little about yourself?
My name is Musinguzi Sadick. My hometown is Mbarara, not so far from here - about two districts away from Kyansi. I have been working for two years teaching Primary 6 and Primary 7 children in Mathematics and Social Studies.
You have such an admirable profession, sowing the seeds of education for these children! What got you interested in becoming a teacher?
I was motivated by my father who was also a teacher - he taught science. I've always enjoyed science and along with mathematics, it's been one of my favourite subjects. I wanted to follow in my father's footsteps and also become a teacher.
I'm sure you are also inspiring others to do the same! What do you most enjoy about being a teacher, Sadick?
I enjoy seeing people performing well, it also makes them happy. It is important for all children to have a bright future.
Absolutely, you teachers are providing both opportunity and hope for the future for these children! What do you like to do when you are not teaching?
I enjoy playing football, my favourite team is Manchester United, and favourite players are Anthony Martial, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and of course, Paul Pogba. I also like watching films.

International Teachers' Day is celebrated annually on 5th October to recognise the vital role of teachers in society. The United States dedicate an entire week for Teacher Appreciation Week - it was celebrated earlier this month. It makes us think of the importance of education and what a difference a good teacher can make!
