Thaddeo K. Babiiha was born and raised in Uganda and has lived in the U.S. since July 1971. He has been in New Orleans and teaching at Xavier since August 1977. Also he has taught at Tougaloo College, 1976-77. He says that he wouldn't trade Xavier students for the world. He is a conservative in education who disdains fads and those who would have the humanities mimic the sciences. He met Theresa in Uganda in 1968, fell in love at first sight, and got married in New York in 1973. They are a family of two, both American citizens since 1988. Theresa is an operating room registered nurse in cardiology at Tulane, and the pride of his life.
