My philosophy statement plain and simple is to understand that our children are different and unique in their own way. As a teacher, our mission is to provide a solid foundation in a safe, caring, and positive environment that is also engaging in a way that supports each and every student to reach their highest potential and to eventually be contributing members of our society. As future generations continue to learn and grow, so do teachers as learning is a lifelong endeavor for us all.
As for me personally, I am an avid fishermen who is always looking for my next big catch and also enjoy diving for tako. One other thing that rivals my favorite hobby is the love for my grandson who keeps me busy every day and is always excited about learning new things. As a family, we go to U.H. football games to support Hawaii's Team and take annual trips to Japan to see family and enjoy the sights, shopping, flavors, and all the things that make a trip enjoyable.
