Aloha! Konnichiwa! Talofa! Yokwe! Annyong Haseyo!
Welcome to one of the most diverse classroom at Moanalua Middle. Students from Japan, Korea, the Pacific Islands, and the Philippines make Room E-3 their "Home Away from Home" as they learn the many ways to express themselves in English.
In our classroom we share stories of our experiences and our culture with each other. We are surrounded by technology to help us research and document our lives and thoughts through multiple media tools. Each student is valued for their unique and special contribution to our classes.
Please feel free to always stop by to meet new friends and learn a new language!
WHO IS MRS. TANO?
I love the ocean and people. Oceans connect and separate a wide array of people throughout the world. When we are, by good fortune, joined together in celebrating and sharing of our lives, we invest and injest valuable moments that make us who we are.
