Greetings! I am Kuʻulei Paraso, a fifth grade teacher at Ka Papahana ʻo Māʻilikūkahi. I am from Waipiʻo, Oʻahu and now I live in Māʻili with my family. I have four children. The oldest is a high school student at Ānuenue, the two middle children are students at Ka Papahana ʻo Māʻilikūkahi and the youngest is a pūnua at Pūnana Leo ʻo Waiʻanae. This is my third year teaching at this school. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Hawaiian speaking children and families. Letʻs all have a great school year!
