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!
Aloha! My name is Miss Mai.I am honored by this opportunity to work with children and families. I am motivated to inspire children to widen their potential and curiosity. I always think carefully about how the activities connect with children in a meaningful way, and how best to spark their curiosity and their love for learning. I would like to provide a secure and nurturing environment for young children, regardless of outside circumstances. I look forward to starting the school year with you and your child.
Aloha! My name is Miss Tiana.Surrounding myself with children has always been a passion of mine. I am beyond thankful to be at Kinder Kids. I have the opportunity to learn and grow alongside the students and the other teachers. Helping children to learn and grow gives me an immense sense of joy. It is the best feeling as their teacher to join them in their journey. I promise to provide the students with all the essentials that they will need to master new skills. I look forward to working with families to help build an amazing foundation for their children so that they will become great role models in the future. I am currently studying to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Education and I am loving the hands-on experience that I have been receiving at Kinder Kids. I will always go above and beyond for your child!
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.
Aloha! I’m Miss Jessica. I’ve worked with children and students 6 months old to university, but preschool is definitely my favorite age! They are so curious and open to try new things, and I love to watch them grow and become more and more confident in their abilities. I’ve taught Early Childhood Education at international schools in Germany and China, but I’m so happy to now call Hawai’i my home and to have found such a wonderful school to work. The atmosphere at Kinder Kids is so refreshing because it’s nurturing while still being academic; it’s fun while still educational. I am very happy to now be part of the team! In my free time, I enjoy running, yoga, and cooking.
Aloha! My name is Miss Dawn.I enjoy interacting with children of all ages, particularly the preschool and Kindergarten level. I love building relationships with the children and the families. Most importantly seeing the children develop and grow; learning vital life skills to be successful individuals in our society. I strongly believe children are the future to a better world and we need to create a loving, nurturing, fun environment to learn. This means planning fun activities and circle times to get the children engaged, having fun and wanting to come to school every day to learn more!
Aloha! My name is Jennifer and I teach in the Laughing Leopards classroom. I grew up in California and after high school I enlisted in the U.S. Airforce. During my military service I was stationed in Okinawa and Arkansas. I studied at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock where I completed my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. I Have taught Pre-K, second and third grade. I have always had a passion for working with children and find them to be the most genuine members of our society. I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors. One of my favorite pastimes is taking my dog to the beach. I am very proud to be working at Kinder Kids and look forward to getting to know all of you and your children!
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.
Aloha, My name is Miss Rei.I am passionate about early childhood education and have taught classes to many international students in both Japan and Hawaii. My focus is to help children discover the joy of learning and help each child develop a strong belief in his or her own ability to achieve. It is also very important to me that my students always learn how to be kind and helpful to others. I love reading books and making art and music with children. I look forward to growing together at Kinder Kids!
