I am Kēhaulani Medeiros. I am one of the teachers for the third grade. I was born and raised on this island. I live in Hilo with my husband and our boys. The boys attend this school.
This is my seventh year of teaching at this school, prior I worked at Pūnana Leo of Hilo preschool for six years. My goals are to develop the student’s knowledge, life, and love for the Hawaiian language so they can become mature adults who contribute to our community.
