Staff Spotlight: Headmaster, Allen C Shao

“Hard work always rewards,” is something MWK students are used to hearing from their Headmaster, Allen C Shao. “One should always struggle to overcome challenges.” His life proves these aphorisms.

Born in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania speaking his tribal language, Kichaga, he earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Education at the University of Dar es Salaam. Shao began teaching physics at MWK (formerly Nianjema) Schools in 2004.

A dedicated man, Shao is a strong advocate of a broad curriculum. He believes that creative activities like music, drama, dance and yoga, and weekly sports activities help students perform better academically. He is a firm believer in schools offering English, remembering his own experiences of learning English by all the books he could lay his hands on until he was fluent.

Shao is loved by his students. “Mr. Shao unleashes the students’ abilities by involving us in the learning process. We should strive to make him proud,” wrote Cara Sloan in the school’s yearbook.
