DUMBA STEPHEN

I wish to introduce myself DUMBA STEPHEN intending to serve as Coordinator for the Central Region ITAU. Kindly read through my introductory brief.
An Italian writer Luciano de Crescenzo said that we are all angels with one wing and can only fly when we embrace each other.
Before ITAU, each of us may have thought that we were experts little knowing that it’s when you share what you know that you realise there is a lot more you don’t know.
Surprisingly, the membership of ITAU is so low compared to the number of ICT teachers out there. Many dont even know ITAU exists.
Personally, I have learnt a lot from the current group and can’t imagine how much more I can learn if we were more.
I have offered IT support in several schools in Uganda and realised a big knowledge gap between members. We can only reduce this gap if we work together. We therefore need the numbers.
📝I wish to add a helping hand in increasing enrollment in ITAU.
📝 I want to help in improving the involvement and participation of members in ITAU activities.
📝I want to help build a foundation for quality submissions in form of articles and the like on the ITAU website.
📝I will also help to find out the challenges teachers of ICT are facing.
Through this, we shall help schools have better quality teachers, and also help these schools make better informed decisions in areas concerning ICT.
Kindly share with me your views in my submission and better still GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE ON THE ITAU CENTRAL COMMITTEE this time round.
Regards.

JOSHUA MUBIRU MUGERERE

Am JOSHUA MUBIRU MUGERERE ICT& CST Tr. Basically Teaching , currently at Wakataayi SS and Mpigi SS in Luweero District. I have alot of profile but briefly that’s it.
Every leader needs a personal manifesto: something that lets everyone know their views, their thoughts, and their beliefs and intentions. When I create my manifesto, I instill a sense of transparency that makes it easy for others to respect, emulate and trust me.
I have created this manifesto, starting with what I value. Letting it be the guide that steers one to embrace my greatness.
Here are the Valuable points to my fellow CST & ICT Trs who want to experience greatness in ITAU in case you Vote me in power to take A lead as The V.PRESIDENT of the CENTRAL REGION or Secretary for FINANCE:
I will commit to being an authentic person.
When you commit to being genuine as a leader, you embrace all parts of who you are—the good, the bad, the weak, the strong, the gaps and the greatness. You’re committed to acknowledging and leveraging the sum of all your parts. If you can be genuine, you will win hearts and minds.
I will take responsibility for my life.
Commit to being fully responsible for your health, happiness and success. Refuse to blame others or make excuses for your problems and hold yourself fully accountable for whatever you do.
I will communicate in a way that conveys what I mean to say.
The words you speak and the way you communicate will always matter; every time you say something it provides a reflection on who you are, what you think and what you value. Make sure your heart and mind are saying the same thing.
I will remember to serve something bigger than myself.
The greatest rewards come when you give of yourself. It’s about bettering the lives of others, being part of something bigger than yourself, and making a positive difference. People want to be part of something bigger than themselves. They want to be in a situation where they feel that they are doing something for the greater good.
I will take ownership of my work and strive to make things better within my sphere of influence.
Leaders inspire accountability through their ability to accept responsibility before they place blame and the best leaders serve humanity in a way that lifts everyone around them. Accountability is the measure of a leaders height.
I will embrace resilience.
Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. Learn not to reject failure as fatal but instead to face everything with boldness and courage. When you do, you will gain the perspective that nothing is off limits and that every opportunity is a platform for future success experiences, because only those who dare to fail greatly, can ever achieve greatly.
I will invest in myself as I invest in others.
No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders. So the point is not to become a leader but to invest in yourself as a person. To use yourself completely – all your skills, strengths, gifts and talents– in order to make your vision manifest. You must never hold back. You, must, in sum, become the person you are meant to be, and to enjoy the process of becoming. The true great leaders are constantly making ongoing commitment with themselves to invest in their own growth as a leader and also in growth and training for those around them.
I will remember there is always free choice.
You may not always be able to change or choose your situation, but you will always be able to choose who you are going to be in the situation. Choose the character and the values that lead you to embrace your greatness.
I will dedicate myself to my calling.
Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve your greatness, because not everyone lives up to their calling. But if you know what is important to you, and if you know that what you do matters, you will put your best into what you do and how you do it. To live up to your calling is to tap into your greatness and embrace it.
Lead from within: Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It’s precisely that simple, and it’s also that complicated. Leadership is a choice and a privilege, learn to embrace the greatness it can bestow upon you
NB:
I can’t promise heaven on earth but the almighty knows what my heart yearns for the ITAU. Therefore, I ask your vote
by 30.01,2019 and continue to interact with me for mo

Wejuli Moses

Good evening the ICT fraternity, with humility and gratitude I just want to thank everyone who endeavors to willingly contributes to this fraternity for a noble cause and positive development of both individuals and the fraternity as a whole
Allow me to briefly introduce myself to you the noble people on this platform
My name is Wejuli Moses
A teacher of ICT/computer studies and mathematics.
I hold a bachelor’s of science and education in maths and computer studies
Have been a teacher of mainly ICT for now three years
Started my carrier at Aaron’s Christian High school, went to Shammah High School in Luweero, and now at St. Lawrence Citizens High School Horizon. That’s briefly about me.
My main aim for writing all the above is to bring to the light of this fraternity the person of me who has contested for the post of a secretary for projects on the central ICT teachers committee with an alternative of vice chairperson.
With a lot of experience in leadership at different levels and in various positions, I have been compelled to contest for this post (secretary for projects ) because that’s where I feel my capacity lies.
As a visionary leader, always aiming at making a contribution to the society and concerned about the well being of others, am humbly making my simple submission to this platform asking for your mandate and trust in the above position. My major aim for applying is based on a few yet very critical aspects as pertains the ICT fraternity and here they go
Promoting socioeconomic transformation of the ICT teachers
Many times we have always centered on social development and most notably professional development but one cancer that is eating up the teachers is economic development, I therefore come at this time with a mind well set to tackle that challenge but of course this comes with your mandate and a huge support from all of us here.
Ensuring the availability of funds to always support every activity of the association.
This can be achieved through various projects that we can set up and support as a team given that we already have the numbers and now only requiring the idea and mobilisation.
Aiming at ensuring the progress of ITAU SACCO.
Being one of the very best way of promoting and uplifting the teachers economic status, my focus lies on how to mobilise numbers to join the SACCO. This not only will help the individual teachers, but the association as a whole and most profoundly, it will do a lot of publicity for the association.
I would have wished to add more but my main emphasis lies on the above observation.
Am therefore requesting for your mandate so that the above ideas can be put into practice for the betterment of our association. Thanks so much good people.
Wejuli Moses
Secretary for projects
