About Me

Aloha!  I am stoked to embark on each authentic school year teaching at BOHS. My overall mission is to genuinely build meaningful connections with my students, while teaching/guiding them to independently learn how to use their intuition and realize the power that their personally chosen life experiences and literacy skills—reading, writing, speaking, active listening, vocabulary acquisition and use—can be of significant, vital use not just in school; but most importantly: as creators (not passive followers) and self investigators in the real world outside the classroom.  Kia ora! (Life be well/healthy!)
