Dear First Grade Parents and Families, 
 
Welcome to D4-A! I'm so excited to be your child's first grade teacher this year. I hope to make your child's learning experience enjoyable, meaningful, and fun! I can't wait to see what this year has in store for us!
 
I grew up in Mililani, graduated from Mililani High School, and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Wheaton College, near Chicago, Illinois. I have taught third grade, kindergarten, and first grade for a total of five years in teaching. I just got married to my wonderful husband, Jon, and we love to travel together. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, going to yoga classes, and trying out new recipes. 
 
As a partner with you in your child’s education, I will do my best to encourage, support, and inspire your child as we work together towards becoming lifelong learners. I also believe in the importance of communication between school and home. Please check your child's planner and binder daily for homework and important forms. I will also be using Class Dojo to send out reminders and post class photos throughout the year. Please sign up for Class Dojo to connect with our class and stay in the loop! 
 
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to:
  • Message me through the Class Dojo App (fastest communication)
  • Write notes directly in your child's planner
  • Email: amy_stringer@notes.k12.hi.us 
  • Call: 627-7300 x265
 
Let's have a fantastic school year!
 
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Yamaoka
