The Grade 4ai Teachers
Peter Lincoln - Teacher
Hello, my name is Peter Lincoln (better known as Mr. Peter) and I am delighted to be starting my fourth year at HKA. I have had the pleasure of teaching across grade levels, from Kindergarten Performing Arts to Secondary School Business Studies, but my heart is truly at home in grade 4.
Prior to coming to Hong Kong Academy my wife Stella, HKA's Secondary and DP Drama Instructor, and I taught at the American International School in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In Dhaka I also had the pleasure of being the Service Learning Coordinator for our secondary school and helped develop a program that had our children working with 12 community organizations involved in social programs for the impoverished. Before moving to Bangladesh Stella and I were the founders and operators of the NorthWest Children's Theatre in Seattle, Washington, the place we call our home. In addition to a bachelors degree and U.S. teaching credential I hold a Masters of Education in ELL.
As a strong advocate for developing children to be life long learners, I am a firm believer in the words of Joseph Campbell, “The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves”.
Murjana Marafa - Co-teacher
Hey everyone, I’m Murjana, but you can call me Ms. M!
I was born and raised in Hong Kong, but am originally from Nigeria. I am a firsthand graduate of the IB programme as I did my MYP in Renaissance College and DP in Shatin College. I then proceeded to gain my Bachelors Degree in Social Science at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
I have always loved kids and have spent a great deal of time tutoring English as a second language to local Hong Kong children. These experiences have lead me to find my passion in being around children and teaching. I look forward to having a fun and fulfilling year and getting to know all you lovely people!
