Welcome to Kindergarten at Ho‘okele Elementary School! My name is Kristen Maehara and I will be your child's Kindergarten teacher for this 2018-2019 school year. I graduated from University of Hawaii at Manoa with a degree in Elementary Education. This is my fourth year teaching at Ho‘okele and prior to that, I have taught for six years at Kapolei Elementary. It has been a great experience being a part of Ho‘okele opening its doors four years ago, and watching how much we have grown as a school and community.
Kindergarten is going to be the foundation of your child’s school experience. This is exciting for both students and teachers as it is a time of new beginnings, friends, challenges, accomplishments, and responsibilities. This will be a year of learning, reaching countless milestones, and lots of fun! It is important that we all work together as a team in order to help your child succeed. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions and/or concerns via email (email@example.com), phone (305.8500), or through the Bloomz App. You may also make an appointment to meet with me before or after school. I know that with the cooperative efforts between our school, parents, teacher, and students, we will have an exciting and successful school year!
Again, I welcome you to Room F109! I am very fortunate and beyond excited to be part of your child’s Kindergarten experience! I look forward to working with each and every one of you, as we begin the start of a wonderful school year! Thank you in advance for your trust, support, and cooperation!
With Much Appreciation, Ms. Maehara
