Description of Work/Professional Interests
After 14 years as a classroom teacher, I left to coordinate a place based, project based after school program in Waianae through the University of Hawaii. In the classroom and as a coordinator, I loved to include technology into the classroom. Currently, I am transitioning into a new role as a community school site coordinator where I will connect community and parents to the school. I desire to help children in Waianae find their passions and become successful in life. I am very interested in the use of technology in schools, in the workplace, and in life.
With a hubby and 4 kids, most of my time is spend with them at home, in their activities, and at church. I spend much time at the soccer and volleyball fields. I volunteer as a team mom and a referee. As time permits, I love to craft. I especially enjoy making jewelry with beads. I recently started blogging as a guest on a couponing site, m2minspiredhawaii.org, using iMovie. Thus, I coupon too! In my travels for work, I enjoy visiting different parts of our country. I visited the east coast for the first time last year. My travels have taken me to San Francisco, Napa, Oakland, Minneapolis, Dallas, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Columbus, and the Big Island.
