Journey of Classroom Teachers


Where Nohona Meets Hawaiian Language Competencies:

“Take wisdom and make it deep." That was a common belief of the people of old. If there was something that you wanted to become adept at, you need to practice it constantly until it becomes a part of you. That concept can also be applied to the use of Hawaiian language. It is not enough to just attend one single class and hope that you will gain constant fluency. Mastery of any skill takes continual practice and dedication.

Our kumu at Kamehameha are striving to perpetuate and proliferate the Hawaiian language and culture in their classrooms. On this page you will find different examples of the efforts put forth by some of our teachers to integrate ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i and mo‘omeheu Hawai‘i into their daily class activities.
