A Great School Year

Had an amazing 2013-2014 school year at Kamehameha. Looking back, here are some of my memories….

After servicing the elementary & middle school campuses for the past 10 years, I finally moved up to the high school. Blessed to be a part of a great team, the “Bishop Boys.” We started a tradition of Crock-pot Wednesdays.

The highlight of the school year for me was traveling to Beijing, China with Liz and Doug to present at RDFZ Xishan School’s International Summit. It was an amazing experience. The best part was reuniting with good friends, Jessie, Sunny, C.Y., and Raj.

But what makes working at KS so great is our amazing team. We are a family. Here we are at our Christmas party at the Bishop Museum.

Unreal. In February, KS was able to host students from RDFZ Xishan for two days. The RDFZ Performing Arts Team toured Honolulu, L.A., and San Francisco. They stayed overnight in our dorms and performed for our elementary and middle schools. They bonded with many of our high school students. It was a great experience and a total team effort.

In March (and on a Saturday,) our KS EdTech Team held its first annual “Mashup” professional development day for teachers. A Mashup combines the best elements of a conference and an unconference. We received nothing but positive feedback.

Our high school’s TED Talks Club hosted our very first TEDxYouth event on campus. It was a huge success! Already looking forward to next year.

Finally, the year ended with our annual KS EdTech Conference at the Blaisdell Center. It was a great time of learning and collaboration.

Extremely grateful to be a part of Kamehameha Schools. What a great year! Imua.
