The U-Can Team
Meet our friendly and experienced diverse team whose commitment to the students of U-Can makes our school community an exceptional place to be!
I have been working as an educator all over East Africa for 28 years. In 2013 we established U-Can International School as a means to bring a first-class Canadian education to Uganda.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to help the next generation learn and grow. I can’t wait to see how they shape and develop our world.
It is fun working in a diverse and welcoming environment. I enjoy the opportunity to contribute to an exciting, fast-growing international school in Uganda.
I don’t have a magic wand, a crystal ball, or all the answers – but I do have ears to listen, a heart to care, and time to give!
