|Title:||Kumu K/2 Resource|
I graduated from St. Anthony Jr. – Sr. High School in Wailuku. My mom was an elementary school teacher, and my grandmother was an elementary school principal. I knew I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age! I received my BEd in Elementary Education from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, and a Master of Education from Chaminade University. I began my teaching career at Kihei Elementary School teaching kindergarten for three years. I moved to Oahu for a year where I taught kindergarten at Pohakea Elementary in Ewa Beach. I returned to Kihei Elementary for another seven years teaching kindergarten, grade 2 and serving as the librarian. This is my 14th year here at Kamehameha Schools Maui where I taught kindergarten for eight years. I am in my sixth year of teaching terrific third graders!
