My Students

I love my students because of how eager they are to learn everyday despite any and all adversity. We are waiting for the completion of our school building and have been meeting at a community center. I have been amazed by how excited they are by a new school year. They are hardworking and are some of the most respectful interesting students I have ever met.

These students are always asking questions to further their understanding and develop as young potential scientists.

Before they continue on after high school into their collegiate studies/careers, I want to ensure they are able to understand and investigate on both a macro and micro level because they deserve it. Thank you for your time!!

My Project

During the scope of their upper division field ecology in high school, students will investigate different ecological zones and create proposals on how to prevent coastal erosion, how to save coral reef, how to collect and prevent pollution etc.. Through microscopic data taken from sand analysis, water samples, and other abiotic and biotic factor, they will gain a better understanding of what they are studying and how to create feasible solutions.

I would love to see my students make connections between the things they see and the microscopic organisms/abiotic factors that contribute to ecological issues.

They will have the opportunity to use what they learned to apply it and help the island of Maui.
