Meet the Teachers: Maurice Masala

This year, we are starting a new recurring segment entitled: Meet the Teachers. Dwankhozi Basic School is filled with incredible adults committed to the education of over 600 students. And we want you to know them. So, meet Maurice Masala, grade 7 teacher at Dwankhozi Basic School.

Maurice is the second youngest of ten siblings who grew up in the Dwankhozi Community and went on to pursue further education. After volunteer teaching at Dwankhozi Basic School in the mid-2000’s, he developed the desire to become a full-time teacher and has been there on staff ever since.

On our most recent visit to the school in June, Maurice was selected to be a Project Manager for World Reader’s e-reader training. He helped educate and train his fellow teachers on using e-readers and incorporating them into class curriculum.

Later this fall, World Reader asked Maurice to travel to Malawi and help launch a brand new e-reader project at a school. He became the first Project Manager ever to lead an additional WR launch!

Maurice has seen Dwankhozi’s development firsthand over the past decade. He sat down with us for five minutes in June to recap his own involvement and just how far the community has come. Enjoy!
