Sallieu Bundu (born January 1, 1984 in Freetown, Sierra Leone) nicknamed Teacher, is a Sierra Leonean footballer.
Bundu, who is commonly known by his nickname Teacher, grew up in his hometown of Freetown, Sierra Leone, the second largest city in Sierra Leone. He attended the Independence Memorial High School. At the age of 15, Bundu fled on foot with his mother and siblings to Guinea to escape the civil war in his home country; his father was murdered by rebels. After five years of living in Guinea, Bundu's brother won a US immigrant visa in the Green Card Lottery, allowing the family to settle in the United States.
Bundu settled in Twinsburg, Ohio, and on April 10, 2008, signed with the Cleveland City Stars after impressing head coach Martin Rennie in a trial. He was a revelation in his first season with the team, netting 8 goals in 19 appearances, and on August 23, 2008 scored the winning goal for Cleveland in the USL Second Division championship game. Sallieu Bundu has walked on the way to sign a contract with Carolina RailHawks FC.
Carolina loaned Bundu to Charlotte Eagles of the USL Pro league for the 2011 season.
Bundu went on loan to Ravan Baku of the Azerbaijan Premier League at the start of the 2012-2013 season. Bundu made three appearances for Ravan, scoring once.
Bundu signed with USL Pro club Charleston Battery on March 20, 2012.
