Ajok Beatrice

Primary Literacy Specialist & Teacher

26 years old

Meet Beatrice, our lovely literacy specialist and teacher at our Primary School in Uganda! Beatrice is a dedicated teacher, mom and wife, balancing it all with incredible grace and care. She is driven and intelligent, and we are immensely grateful to have her at our school.

As our literacy specialist, Beatrice orchestrates the implementation of all programs focused on getting our primary students to become the best readers they can be. This includes training teachers and parents about phonics and early literacy, being a model reading teacher that other teachers can observe, coaching reading teachers, assessing each student's reading level, reporting on literacy achievement, and providing small group tutorials for our students with special reading needs.

Beatrice is essentially a super teacher, and plays a vital  role in shaping our students into confident readers. The parents of our students quickly picked up on how influential and supportive Beatrice is, and many have begged her to privately tutor their students. Beatrice knows how important it is to have the support and encouragement from home, so she decided she will start giving trainings for parents after school hours. With her help, many of our parents will not only improve their own literacy, but they will be learning such helpful strategies for assisting their children to read at home.

Beatrice is so grateful for the community of students and their families that support her, and we watch her return every ounce of love and support to them each day that she comes to campus. Her passion and dedication to literacy is going to empower these kids throughout the rest of their years in school. We know that her role is crucial to the success of our students, and we could not have picked a better person for the job! Thank you Beatrice, for all you are to our students, and for the wonderful reminder to us all of how much respect and love all kids deserve!
