I started teaching in 2007 in the high school and intermediate setting. I've taught in the special education setting in Language Arts, Social Studies - Economics, U.S. History, Pacific Islands, History of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Study Skills, Workplace Readiness, and Psychology. I have taught in the regular education setting and Honors setting in Social Studies - Early American History and History of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
I'm pretty laid back and like to let the students teach each other. I prefer doing projects and group work with stations so students are not just sitting there listening to me talk the whole time.
Highly Qualified to teach Social Studies in Hawaii for grades 7-12, Social Studies Department Head
I graduated from Brigham Young University - Hawaii with a Bachelors in Social Science Secondary Education, Associates in Theatre and a Minor in History. Attended high school in California and Canada.
I am married, have two kids and love living in Hawaii.
