I teach 3rd grade on the island of Kaua'i, Hawai'i
I live on the beautiful island of Kaua'i with my son, Mikel, 13. I am lucky to have family close-living here and on the other islands. I work at a great school with dedicated staff. I enjoy beachin' it, hiking, camping, hanging out and taking story.
I am a teacher that works in the inner city to try to improve the vision that children in these communities have about themselves. As a child of immigrants, I understand what is like to become a member of a school where people have different interests from yours. Through education, I hope to open the doors of a great future for my students, giving them the chance to believe in themselves.
