KAILUA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL

Is So Proud of Ms. Kutsunai!

Congratulations to Kailua Intermediate social studies teacher, KAREN KUTSUNAI who is the Windward District's 2013 Teacher of the Year. Ms. Kutsunai will be recognized at a ceremony at Washington Place on October 26 and is in the running for the State Teacher of the Year award, along with six other nominees. This exceptional educator was selected by her colleagues as our school’s most outstanding teacher last school year and will serve the Department of Education well as a role model for all teachers. She encourages her students to become active citizens as they participate in real-world contexts - tunneling to the spine of O'ahu, following the election trail, and playing the role of a plantation worker in early Hawaii. Ms. Kutsunai is humbled by this recognition and credits the collective efforts of our entire school community for this honor. Go Jr. Surfriders!
