I am excited to be a part of the Romoland Elementary team this year. I am a Kindergarten teacher and this will be my 16th year teaching. My experiences include teaching grades K-8, early childhood classrooms, and being a Preschool Director. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a Masters in Elementary Education Curriculum and Instruction from San Diego State University.
Teaching is my passion! I believe that when children are loved, accepted for who they are, and their uniqueness is celebrated, all children are capable of reaching their greatest learning potential. I am a lifelong learner and love learning. I want to instill that love of learning for each child I have in my classroom.
On a personal level, I am a Maui, Hawaii native and I take great pride in my culture and heritage. Family is very important to me as they have always been my biggest supporters in my career. I have three children and an amazing husband, who is a radiation therapist. During our free time, we enjoy just spending time together, whether it would be traveling, paddle boarding, snowboarding, bowling, golfing, or simply watching a good movie.
I value partnerships with families and my colleagues. Together, we can instill skills and values in our children to ensure a better tomorrow. I am looking forward to working with all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
