Personal info

My name is Egonga Badhaga Saleh and a graduate of Makerere University of 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree with Education specializing in the teaching of English language and Literature. I have been privileged to teach in schools and institutions where students have either been introduced or not to the integration of ICT in face-to-face classroom settings as a way of facilitating their learning. As a lecturer at National Teachers College Kaliro, I boast of over 7 years teaching experience gained through teaching teacher trainees in subject content and advanced pedagogy.
