Greetings to our brave warriors.  My name is Kahula Yong (Reed).  I'm from Waimānalo, a place known for Kaiona beach.  Now, I reside with my husband in the calm of the Kaiāulu winds in Waiʻanae, a place known for the Kaʻala mountains.  My path of Hawaiian Language started at Kamehameha and continued at Kawaihuelani and Kamakakūokalani, my college grounds of Mānoa.  My I started my teaching career in 2014.  I am a new face at Ke Kula ʻo Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu at Ka Papahana ʻo Māʻilikūkahi this year, 2021.  I am happy to be working together with solid ʻohana in Waiʻanae.  The Hawaiian language will live.  Mahalo.
