I come to you with 20 years of experience as an educator - as a classroom teacher, coach, vice-principal and building principal, but in addition to my role as an educator, I am also a wife and mother. When not at work my husband, Brant and I are busy raising our two sons Caleb, a 12 year old, seventh grader at Mililani Middle and Connor, a 10 year old fifth grader at Mililani Ike Elementary. I look forward to introducing my family to all of you in the near future as well as getting to know all of your families.
As part of my transition into Ka'imiloa, I will be taking some time to get to know our building, our community and familiarizing myself with the strengths and needs of our school. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when we work together as a team. Ultimately, it takes all stakeholders - school, family and community working together for the best interest of our students to make the biggest positive impact.
I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to immersing myself completely in our school and community. I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, as you in return put our students in the best possible position to succeed.
In closing, please know that my door is always open to you, I heartily welcome your conversations and input throughout this year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the remainder of this 2019-2020 school year.
