Miss Keris

Busy BeeTeacher

Aloha! I’m Miss Keris and I’ve always loved little kids. Teaching is a passion of mine and I get joy from watching the children reach their goals and to see their facial expressions when they can finally do something on their own.
It is very rewarding seeing children use what I have taught them as they teach their siblings or friends what they have learned.
Children are our future, and if we can teach them how to do things the right way from a young age, they can have a wonderful life and create a better world for their children.

Hello everyone! My name is Miss Trisha.I have experience working with children of all ages. Early childhood education holds a special place in my heart. The thing I love most about being a teacher is being able to help children grow and reach their milestones during their early years. Additionally, I love that Kinder Kids gives teachers and students the opportunity to learn in an engaging, nurturing, and fun-filled environment. As part of the Kinder Kids team, I am excited and grateful to be able to work together with all of you!

Running RabbitTeacher

Hello, my name is Miss Moon. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach at Kinder Kids International School. I believe that children are incredibly valuable and represent our future. I love being around kids and feel happy and energized when I am with them. This passion led me to pursue a 6-year course in Early-Childhood Education at a university and teach children for several years in Korea. Now, I’m excited to teach children here in Hawai’i. My three children always support me, which makes me even happier. I look forward to helping children and their families.

Running RabbitTeacher

Hi, my name is Miss Kayoko. I studied early childhood education in Hawaii and have experience working with children from 0 to 5 years old. Five years will pass by with a blink of an eye for adults but for children, each year is very unique, different, and very important- especially in their very early years.
I’m excited and honored to build good relationships with Kinder Kids children and their families, and support their growth with love. Hawaii is a very special place to live. A place where many cultures gather. I hope that the children will learn to respect their own uniquenesses and each other’s differences while at Kinder Kids.

Hi everyone! I’m Miss Mayumi. I love teaching and watching children learn and grow. I really enjoy all the time I spend with them.
Children are so positive and curious and not only do I feel it is a privilege to teach them, but also I have the pleasure of learning from them.
I believe that Kinder Kids International School’s unique curriculum gives the children a great deal of opportunities in an environment that is both engaging and fun. I'm originally from Japan and I will be the Japanese and Music class teacher for the older children.

Aloha kākou, my name is Miss Brandi and I am so excited to be a part the Kinder Kids International Hawaii Kai team! I am from the Big Island of Hawai’i and in my free time I love spending time with family, friends and my dog. Some of my hobbies include spending time at the beach, doing arts and crafts such as resin art and shopping (mostly at target)! I’ve always loved working with children. Watching them grow and mature during their time in preschool is such a rewarding and exciting journey! The pure joy in the children’s faces when they accomplish something is a constant reminder of why I love teaching! Children are our future. “He keiki aloha nā mea kanu.”- Beloved children are the plants. Children are like plants, given the attention and care that is needed, they will grow!

I am honored to be working at Kinder Kids to assist your children in this crucial phase of academic and emotional development, using the utmost understanding and support. I believe that as I help your children grow and learn, they will be helping me learn and grow as an educator and a human being.

Dancing DinosaurTeacher

Aloha I’m Miss Natasha, I’m passionate about teaching and academics in early preschool because I believe in laying a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning. Watching young children explore, discover, and grow is incredibly rewarding. I cherish the opportunity to foster curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking in these early stages, and setting children on a path towards a bright future. Kinder Kids International School provides children with a stimulating curriculum like no other. Apart from teaching I love cooking, waterfall hikes, and spending time with my own little learner (my son). I look forward to every moment with your child.

FloaterTeacher

Hello, everyone. My name is Miss Katsura. Working with children always intrigues me because they have so much potential and great imagination. I would like to guide them as they learn about themselves and the world around them. I strive to create a warm and enriching environment where children can be themselves. I’ve been working with children ages 1 to 15 for the last 25 years both in Japan and in the US, but I enjoy working with preschool children the most. I am very excited and honored to work at Kinder Kids International School. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, making crafts and going camping with my family. I am looking forward to expanding my experience and knowledge with the children at Kinder Kids!!

Assistant DirectorTeacher

I love teaching young children because I enjoy watching them grow & reach their potential. I’ve worked with kids from all backgrounds & ages (3mos - 10yrs) and it has been very rewarding seeing their growth throughout the school year and as they get older. I believe every child is unique and will teach us (educators) something new every day about the field of ECE. I truly believe that Kinder Kids has all the tools & techniques it needs to help children with their developmental milestones; at the same time learn basic skills to be successful in society. During my free time, I love spending time with my family, cook & bake.
