About me

Aloha I am Kumu Akana, a fifth grade teacher from Kailua, O`ahu.

I am a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, Kapālama and earned my bachelors degree from San Jose State University where I played 4 years of Division 1 volleyball.

I then earned my Masters of Education in Teaching from the University of Hawaii, at Manoa.

Before coming to Kamehameha Maui I was teaching at Waiau Elementary and coaching girls volleyball for Kamehameha Kapalama.

I now teach fifth grade here on the Maui campus and am the Head Coach for the girls varsity volleyball program.
