Aloha! My name is Noe Kaiwi English and I am from Hāna, Maui. My husband and I have two sons - the oldest is in the first grade and the youngest is an ʻīnana at the Pūnana Leo o Hilo. I am one of the 9th grade homeroom teachers at Ke Kula ʻO Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu and teach English language arts to grades 7, 8, and 9. It is truly a blessing to work here within this ʻohana that strives to ensure our language lives. Each and every one of us in this ʻohana is important so letʻs work together to enrich this program that we love!
