Michael Seger

Born and raised in New Albany, Mississippi (USA), Michael and his family moved to Uganda in 2018 as missionaries keen on building relationships and sharing the love of Christ through education, basketball and the local church. Michael serves at GGT because of the important flexibility and beneficial services it provides to homeschooling families - like his - seeking collaborative and quality education based upon a Biblical worldview. He also serves as the Educational Specialist for Hope Alive!, an NGO which provides educational, recreational and spiritual growth opportunities for orphans and other vulnerable children in Uganda. 


Michael has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology Education and a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership. Before moving to Uganda, he taught science and ACT Prep and coached basketball and cross country in Mississippi public schools for 10+ years, while being active in his local church. Michael lives in Gulu with his wife, Kellie, who is a teacher and Dyslexia therapist, and their five sons.

Jody Unterrheiner is passionate about seeing children reach their educational potential. She founded the NGO READ for Life, which specialises in literacy teacher training. It is committed to empowering teachers to use research-based methods of instruction; and it has been encouraging to see many schools make progress in their reading under their Fun of Phonics program. Jody has taught in primary schools in the UK, Australia and Uganda, where she has lived for the past ten years. She has two Bachelor degrees (in Primary Education and Teaching), and a Master in International Education.

 

Jody shares a particular love of literacy; she is an accredited storytelling practitioner and a strong ambassador of phonics and read aloud. She lives in Gulu with her husband, Daniel, and son Myron, where storytelling and read aloud is regularly featured in their family life.
