Reception Class Team

Sarah Preval – Reception Flame Tree Teacher

My name’s Sarah and I come from the UK. I did a Law degree at Nottingham Trent University in England, then later studied for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia. My teaching experience began in South Korea where I taught English for 1 1/2 years. I originally came to Uganda in 2000 as a volunteer with a disabled group and in January 2006 was lucky enough to be offered a job at Ambrosoli. I’ve taught in Seedlings, Reception and Year 2. When I’m not working I love spending time with my two boys (who are both at Ambrosoli and love it!), reading, watching movies and exploring new places.

Mary Mbonigaba- Reception Flame Tree LA

My name is Mary Mbonigaba. I am a learning assistant in Reception Flame Tree this year. I have been working at Ambrosoli since 1997. I hold a certificate in Montessori Education and a Diploma in Early Years education. It has been a privilege to work with so many children in Ambrosoli watching them grow and graduate through the school. My favorite thing about education is watching children flourish into adulthood and achieve their full potential.

Rose Achan – Reception Flame Tree LA

My name is Rose Achan. I come from Nebbi in the northern part of Uganda. I joined Ambrosoli International School in 2005 to work in the Early Years department. I enjoy working with young children and helping them learn through play.

Lydia Katuura – Reception Baobab Teacher

My name is Lydia Katuura and I am a Reception Baobab class teacher this year.  I have been teaching at Ambrosoli since 2014. Teaching has been my passion since I was a teenager.  My interest is to see children develop into competent, creative, and self reliant individuals. I believe in individualized learning and developing children’s mind through challenging questions and engaging into sustainable thinking. I am looking forward to having a blast in Reception.

Dorothy Namagembe – Reception Baobab LA

My name is Dorothy, I started working at Ambrosoli in 2007. I’ve been in Reception before and I’m glad to join Baobab again this year. I’m looking forward to an exciting year with the children.
