Welcome to D4-B!
My name is Joana Sasaki, and I am so thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! I am looking forward to creating a fun learning environment full of knowledge and enrichment. I know how much you care about your child's education, and I will do everything I can to ensure a successful year!
Here's a little background about me....I was born and raised on Oahu. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Child Development from Chaminade University of Honolulu. This will be my third year teaching first grade at Mililani Waena. I have previously taught preschool and fifth grade. I've been married to my husband, Jordan, for almost a year and we went on our first international trip to Japan for our honeymoon in March. I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, shopping, spending time with family and friends, and collecting cute stationery items.
Communication between parent and teacher is an important key to a successful school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me through these communication tools:
- Message me via the Class Dojo app
- write in your child's Mililani Waena planner
- email me at email@example.com

Drink: McDonald's mocha frappe and diet pepsi
Food: I'm a picky eater, but I do love to eat chips and ramen!
Stores: Target & TJ Maxx
