EducationBA and Teaching Credential from University of the Pacific, Stockton, CA
Masters in Pacific Islands Study at UH Manoa where I also studied Hawaiian History and Language.
ExperienceI have spent over 20 years teaching all levels in Elementary classrooms and have tutored individuals and groups in math, reading & writing.
For many years I specialized in teaching children to read in Title I reading programs.
I have also taught at the college level--in the Education Dept. at UH Hawai'i and at Punahou School.
I am a published non-fiction writer. My stories can be read in many of the Cobblestone Magazines.
I have been tutoring and testing at Sylvan Learning Center at Kahala for over 15 years where I teach learning-disable adults as well as children.
HobbiesI have been a teacher for most of my life and continue to teach because I enjoy working with children and watching them grow. I try to make learning fun and am very flexible in my teaching methods which are dictated by the situation, the child, and the particular problem he/she is having. I enjoy learning and strive to pass that along to them as well. In my spare time I can be found writing or watching over turtles on the North Shore while educating the public about their importance in the oceans of the world. I am also an environmentalist and worry about what is happening in our oceans and to our wildlife and the effect this will ultimately have on our children and grandchildren.
