Teaching Experience

I began my teaching career as the Middle School English teacher at St. Theresa Catholic School in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2013.


My hobbies include hiking, traveling, running, and photography. I love being a teacher and preparing students for the next stage in their lives. My teaching philosophy is rooted in nourishing the development of the whole student: mind, body, and spirit. Students’ “ah-ha” moments, abilities to stretch their brains and bright futures inspire me every day!
