I am very delighted to be teaching 2nd grade at Haaheo Elementary School. This is my first year teaching in Hilo. I have been a classroom teacher at Keonepoko Elementary in Hawaiian Beaches for 12 years. The last 4 years I was an academic coach supporting teachers and students. I live in Hilo and now I can enjoy the benefits of working close to home.
I was born and raised in Okinawa. I attended a Department of Defense school and graduated there. I attended University of Manoa where I received my Bachelor of Science and the University of Hilo where I received my Teaching Certificate and Masters of Education.
I am looking forward as we partner together in supporting your child to be successful in all areas.
