My Students

Most of my students are born and raised in the South Pacific, either the Philippines, the Marshall Islands, or Hawaii. I am hoping to expose them to as much as our world and specifically our southern pacific roots as much as possible. A lot of these kids will be the first in their family to graduate high school and or college. Please help support your community, the future of our country and the young and eager minds wanting to learn.

Thank you!

My Project

Students comprehend information much better when it is at their fingertips. Resources like a Hubbard Scientific Ocean Floor Raised Relief Map, that they can touch and feel and see in 3 dimension. We are in need of so much more, but I am asking for these two things so we can get started with our journey.

Living on an island surrounded by the biggest ocean on the planet is very inspiring and exciting to say the least.

I am hopeful that my students will gain a new appreciation for the most abundant area of our planet. Understanding the physical aspect of how these oceans came to be will help with the future of their learning throughout the year.
