I am Patricia Limjoco-Macabulos and for the Academic Year 2019-2020, I will be the Kindergarten English Coordinator as well as the MGN teacher for Early Years. This is my fifth year teaching in Hanoi Academy and I have been the International Homeroom Teacher for the MGL level in previous years.
I have been an educator for 14 years teaching 4 to 7-year-old and I have taken various roles in the Early Years setting. I taught as a Kindergarten Teacher at the International Schools in Bangkok and Singapore, and an Early Years Teacher in the United States. I completed my Master’s Degree in Child Development Education in Manila and eventually opened my own preschool where I took on the role of Curriculum and Preschool Coordinator. It was a good experience for me to have trained teachers in the classroom while adapting to an eclectic approach. I have likewise taught as a roving teacher at the United Nations International School. This year marks my sixth year in Hanoi and I am a parent myself. I have three sons attending university in Vancouver, Canada. Aside from my Masters in Child Development degree, I have a TEFL certification, a Diploma in Early Years Teaching Strategies and in the process of completing a Certificate in Caring for Children with Special Needs. I have also attended various workshops to strengthen my knowledge and practice as an educator in a bilingual setting. I am a certified yoga teacher and have experience in teaching yoga to both kids and adults.
I believe that kindergarten is a magical phrase for both children and their parents and giving the children a venue for exploration, discovery and creativity will create a lifelong love for learning. I look forward to an enriching year with your children. Thank you for your trust and support.
My name is Amy Joy and I am excited to be a new addition to Hanoi Academy this year. I am from Ireland. I am a qualified TEFL teacher with a Bachelor of Law plus a Sociology Degree from the University of Limerick.
I had my first taste of teaching through a semester abroad with the University of Limerick. I went to Spain and taught English to teenagers. This was where I fell in love with teaching, I moved to Vietnam to teach right after I graduated from college. I have 12 months teaching experience in Vietnam where I gained most of my experience teaching in a private kindergarten. I was also a tutor for Grade 2 and 3 learners at Washington English Centre.
I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know all the children in NT and MGN this year. I hope to guide them as best as I can during the course of the year and have patience in the classroom. I know that each student has their own unique way of learning and I hope I will be able to support each child to discover which way works best for them.
Hi. My name is Tanya Martin and this will be my second year teaching here at Hanoi Academy. I am very excited to be teaching MGL this year and looking forward to getting to know you and each of your children.
I was born in Ireland. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from the National University of Galway Ireland, where I studied for four years. I moved to Hanoi from Abu Dhabi, where I taught kindergarten students from the ages 3-4 for two years. I taught many subjects including, English, Mathematics, Computer literacy, Art, Music and Physical Education. In addition, I also taught English and Mathematics to grade 1 and 2 students. I am a big sports enthusiast and have participated in football tournaments, not only in Ireland but also in the Gulf league in the UAE. It is important to make kids active in the classroom to improve their interest for learning and to increase their participation in studies and I aim to do this with my students by bringing my interest in sport to the classroom.
