Meet the team

About Ms. Keri:  This is my fourth year teaching 2nd grade in Hanoi.  Prior to Hanoi, I taught 3rd grade in Maryland, 1st Grade and EAL in Madrid, Spain, and Physical Education in Dakar, Senegal. My family and I are thrilled to be part of the UNIS community. I have a son who is in university and a daughter in Grade 11.   We are originally from the U.S.A. We enjoy traveling, meeting new people, and exploring the delightful food and sights of Vietnam. Outside of the classroom, I coach volleyball and I love spending time with my family exercising and biking.  I am very much looking forward to building a strong community of learners, and being involved in your children’s social, emotional, and academic growth.  I look forward to getting to know you all next year and building a strong home-school connection.

About Mr. Micah:  This is my second year teaching in UNIS Hanoi and my seventh year teaching abroad. My wife and I are from the United States and I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching (Elementary).  I previously taught Kindergarten and Physical Education in the ECC.  Prior to Vietnam, I taught English in Thailand and Romania for the past five years.  I was also the movement and kindergarten teacher for our summer school program at UNIS Hanoi.  Outside of school, I love to play tennis, compete in triathlons, and travel. I am looking forward to meeting you all this year and I hope everyone had a wonderful summer.

About Ms Hoa:  I have worked in the field of education for 4 years. I love working with children since their potential abilities seem to be unlimited. I live in Hanoi with my parents and my younger brother. This is going to be my second official school year working at UNIS in grade two.  I am very much looking forward to going on a new learning journey with all of our students.

About Ms. Jenn: This is my second year teaching in the Learning Support department at UNIS. Again this year I will work primarily with students in Grades 2 and 3. I have had a great summer traveling throughout Vietnam with my husband, Mr. Micah. In my spare time, I love to try new restaurants, go on walks, and spend time with friends. I started my Special Education career in San Diego, California earning a B.A. in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Teaching with an emphasis in Special Education. For the past six years, I have worked with students internationally in Thailand, Romania, and now Vietnam. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.  jszwarc@unishanoi.org

About Ms. Kris: Hello families! This is my third year at UNIS where I work with students, teachers and families in Discovery to Grade 3. I love coming into the classroom to teach lessons about feelings, getting along, calmness and solving problems. I am always here to help children and their families as they navigate growing up. I look forward to seeing all students in person or on Zoom throughout the year.
