STEM Middle School Site Administrator

Originally from Connecticut, I have been teaching in Hawaii since 1999. My primary focus has always been inquiry-based, student-centered learning. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sustainable Agriculture from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts and a Master’s of Science Degree Early Adolescent Education from the Bank Street College of Education in New York, New York. Prior to joining the Kihei Charter School ohana, I taught public and private school on the Big Island and worked as Adjunct Faculty for Chaminade University mentoring in-service teachers. I live in Kula with my husband, Vince. My son, Gregory is entering his sophomore year at Georgetown University. In my free time, I love to travel, stand-up paddle, play tennis, and garden.
