1rén Teaching Team
Ms. Rachel Strozeski (Ms. Rachel)
This is my ninth year teaching at Hong Kong Academy. I am originally from the United States, and have been teaching overseas in international schools for the past 26 years. I have spent time teaching in Africa, South America and Asia. I am here with my husband who is a semi-retired teacher and my son, Nicolaus, who is in the 12th grade at HKA. My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education. I completed my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and also have a Reading Specialist endorsement. My passion is teaching and promoting literacy. I am thrilled to be a part of your child’s early literacy and educational experience. I am looking forward to a fun and productive school year!
Ms. Caroline Noonan (Ms. Caroline)
I have been teaching in Hong Kong for the past four years as a part-time English language teacher and this is my first year at Hong Kong Academy. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Art History, and will also be studying for my PGCE teaching qualification this year. I live in Sai Kung with my husband, two children, Ivy and Liam, and our elderly cat, Bimmy Boy. Prior to children, I worked in the book publishing industry for many years in the UK. I am really looking forward to working with Ms. Rachel and getting to know your children during our exciting and busy year ahead!
