Dear HSDB Families and Educators,
I am extremely proud and excited to join the Hawaiʻi School for the Deaf and Blind as your new Principal! I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all children are cared for, celebrated, and supported. Together we will prepare Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Visually Impaired, and for the amazing futures they deserve!
This year marks my 20th year in Deaf Education. As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to learning, educating, inspiring, and advocating for students. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm, and experience to HSDB in order to cultivate educational programs and partnerships for our amazing students. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes HSDB thrive.
At HSDB we are purposefully engaged in a culture of learning. During School Year 2021-2022, we have three big rocks though which all of our work is filtered:
● Instructional Best Practices
● Whole Child Supports
I believe that strong relationships among staff, students, and families is the bedrock to ensuring that all feel welcome and connected to our school. I look forward to listening to your ideas and creating a vision for our school. Please be on the lookout for upcoming opportunities to connect. I would love to hear from you at any time!
Please feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling our school office at 808-307-3900. I welcome any questions or ideas you would like to share.
I look forward to meeting our young dolphins in person!
With Pod Pride,
