Presenting the 2016 Media Club Shirt Design! Slimming down from last year's design, I decided to focus a little less of the media side and to put more emphasis on our community - Ewa Beach - 96706! I think this is a shirt our club can be proud of, not only because it's an exclusive Media Club shirt, but because it represents Ewa Beach so cleanly in the design.
*The base shirt color had to be changed to white due to costs. I actually think it turned out for the best. :)
2016 Media Club Slogan???
2014 - 2015: "Smile You're On Camera!"
2015 - 2016: "THIS.IS.MEDIAAAAAAAAAA"
2016 - 2017: ? ? ?

About Mr. Toyota
When they say "professions run in the family," the saying holds true for my family and I. My mother, my aunty, and my grandmother were all teachers before me and I didn't ever think I'd be the one to take up the mantle. I've been teaching since 2008 and started at the age of 23 years old.
I'm a National Board Certified teacher with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education: Social Studies. Additionally, I have served in various roles ranging from an HSTA PD Trainer and Consultant, AVID Site Team Member, Club Advisory, Volleyball Coach, Event Organizer, and Chair for the CxK Media Cohort.
Basic Teaching Philosophy
There are constantly occurring learning opportunities. As a teacher, it is my duty to not only help students see these opportunities at face value, but to help them profit from these experiences.
I believe that learning is growing and that growing in the right direction is an important aspect of being successful. I can help the imperfect, I can hardly help those who are perfect. Although academics is an important part of a child's life, I understand that a child's life is even more important than school as an institution. Homework, tests, grades, and due dates pale in comparison to preparing a child for their future. I am but one person amongst a community of people that will come into a child's life, whether my role is small or large, my actions have lasting implications.
I will always strive to make a difference, to help student's grow in the right direction, to develop their passions, and to prepare them for the struggles ahead. It is my duty, my honor, and my will as their teacher.
