Pockets of Change is jointly administered by Adrienne Michetti and Clint Hamada, who were colleagues at UNIS Hanoi in Vietnam. Clint’s still there, but Adrienne has relocated to NYC.

Adrienne Michetti has been teaching young people for more than 11 years, and has been in IB-MYP schools since 2001. Her career began in Canada, where she is originally from, but she has taught in the UK, Qatar, and now Vietnam. Adrienne primarily teaches English Language Arts at the secondary level, but has experience teaching many different subject areas from K-12. Middle school students are her favorite learners; she loves their quirkiness and enthusiasm. Currently, Adrienne has put classroom teaching on hold to pursue a full-time M.A. at NYU in Educational Communication and Technology. Other activities you might find Adrienne doing include updating her iTunes library, singing in a band, practicing yoga, or cooking up a storm. Adrienne also runs another blog (create. connect. question.) where she further explores ideas about teaching and learning in the 21st century.

Clint Hamada has taught in Kagoshima, Japan; Rowland Heights, California; Tokyo, Japan; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Hanoi, Vietnam. He teaches mathematics (middle school, high school, MYP, IB Diploma, and even AP Calculus) but has also taught technology and health (for a very brief time). Clint has a fantastic wife and the two cutest kids in the world. He enjoys sports of all kinds, music of all genres, and technology of all persuasions. He also fancies himself a (very) amatuer chef. Clint runs another blog (Learning on the Job) and finds it difficult to write about himself in the third person…
