My name is Michelle Harris and this will be my second year teaching at Kahala Elementary! This year I will the resource room teacher for grades 2 & 3.
A little about me: I started my teaching career on the East Coast in the state of New Jersey, which is also where I grew up. I have previously taught special education in a variety of settings such as inclusion and resource room over the course of a few years. I have worked with students in grades K through 4. This is my fourth year living and teaching in Hawaii.   
Teaching philosophy: I believe that the foundation of effective teaching rests upon providing a safe and nurturing classroom environment. I also feel it is important to guide our students learning so that every child feels successful and motivated to become lifelong learners. 
Please feel free to contact me at any time through email or by phone. Thank you!
