TEACHERS MAKING A DIFFERENCE 2019

KAMPALA - On Friday, New Vision awarded this year's teachers making a difference in Uganda. The First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports, Janet Museveni, presided over the ceremony in Kampala.

 I thank Vision Group for this initiate of bringing on board teachers making a difference, who have nurtured our learners.

It is good that teachers have been recognized and it is a great way of motivating them because sometimes there efforts are not recognized. Today, more than ever before, innovation has become a key factor in education.

This ceremony is of public appreciation and recognition of teachers who go an extra mile to make sure students are learning.

[To the teachers] Children you teach will never forget you. Whatever you are doing now has rewards that will last. That is the hidden joy in the teaching profession. Continue serving as the ambassadors of God through the teaching profession.

I call upon all teachers of this nation to aspire to be the best in the lives of those children they teach.

It is great to meet the Ugandan teachers making a difference, who have done there best in teaching.

Teaching is a calling. There is no profession that comes about without going through a teacher. Teachers should be given the credit they deserve.

I am happy to recognize outstanding teachers who have made a great contribution in the communities they serve and learners. We must know that teachers were not normally focusing on teaching children in a classroom alone. Remember that that child comes from a home and whatever they have or lack comes from a family.

Children spend alot of time in classrooms and schools. Teachers who spend more time with these children play a big role in the communities.

I congratulate the teachers making a difference and I have no doubt in my mind that God will bless you.

I would like to congratulate the Government of Uganda for the strides they have made towards improving the education system in Uganda.

More teachers are adopting child-centered methodologies. This is one of the many initiatives we are involved in as regards education.

I am delighted that this year, one teacher will be added to the winners, making it six. You will travel [to Ireland] at a time when the weather is nice.

I would like to invite the First Lady, Janet Museveni,  to Ireland's top teacher colleges where we will arrange meetings with stakeholders in Ireland, which will be a great engagement for the parties in Uganda and Ireland.

[To the teachers] Please continue to make a real difference.
