Welcome Letter

Aloha, MWES parents/guardians,
I am looking forward to an exciting school year! As a curriculum coach, my goal is to collaborate with teachers to provide individualized support and focus on effective instructional practices to enhance students' learning in the classrooms.
I was born and raised here on O`ahu. I graduated from `Iolani School and then attended University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, where I received a Bachelor of Education in Elementary and Special Education. I also earned a Master of Arts in Curriculum Studies from Michigan State University. This is my 9th year with the Hawaii Department of Education.
Parenthood keeps me very busy! I spend most of my free time entertaining a toddler and my hands will be even fuller with a new addition expected to arrive in November. I also like to take my Labrador on doggy play dates and watch the Food Network channel or shows on Netflix.
Curriculum development must be planned and purposeful so teachers can ensure learning progress for every child. If you have any curriculum-based questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at
Mrs. Hong
