Welcome to Kindergarten at Solomon Elementary School! My name is Ms. Donna Kanahele. Here is a little about me. I grew up here on O’ahu and graduated from Kaimuki high school. I attended the University of Hawai’i at Manoa and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with minors in Early childhood and Hawaiian Studies. After graduating from college in 1990 I moved to Kaua’i and taught kindergarten in the Hawaiian Immersion program at Kapa‘a Elementary for 13 years. For the next 8 years I was the technology coordinator at the same school. Six years ago I moved back to O’ahu and was the Pearl City/Waipahu district technology resource teacher. The following year I taught a kindergarten class at Pearl City Highlands elementary and then a SPED preschool class at PCHES. I am excited to be back in the kindergarten classroom here at Solomon for the third year and to utilize all that I have learned while in my other teaching roles.
