Agnes is from Kampala, Uganda. From a very young age, she wanted to become a teacher. Agnes holds a Bachelor’s degree in Primary Education and has teaching experience of over 26 years. Agnes has worked in public, private and international school settings, with a concentration in early literacy skills, and has used Jolly Phonics for the past ten years. Seeing children who use English as a second language learn how to read early, improve their speech and comprehension skills, is very fulfilling for her. Agnes is currently a Brain Tree Nursery & Primary School head, co-founder of the ‘Literacy Power Consultancy’ located in Kampala, serves as a Literacy Consultant for different Primary School Boards, and teaches language skills part-time at Fram Nursery vocational school – a kindergarten teachers’ training institution.
Agnes would like to share her Jolly Phonics experience with fellow teachers, teacher trainers and parents within East Africa through hands-on workshops and trainings. This would, in return help place a firm foundation in early literacy skills among children, thus combating the literacy problem that has remained an obstacle to many children’s steady learning progress today.
