Aloha! My name is Makana Ching, the child of David Ching and Linda Tong. I am from Mānana, Oʻahu. I have one son. He is in the seventh grade at Ka Papahana ʻo Mā'ilikūkahi. This year, I will be teaching third and fourth grade. It is a blessing to work here at Ke Kula ʻo Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu and with the employees who continuously strive to ensure that the Hawaiian language lives. E OLA MAU KA ʻŌLELO HAWAIʻI!!!
