Mike Harada's bio

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND
University of Hawaii – Manoa: Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineer
Army Management Staff College - Sustaining Base Leadership and Management Program

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have instructed many classes during the course of my career. I’ve also made numerous presentations called “briefings” that have either provided information or enabled others to make a decision. However, industry standards towards instructing people is very different than teaching young adults. I look forward to the opportunity of “teaching” and working with the young men and women of Moanalua Middle School. Hopefully I can apply some lessons learned from my past experiences when I “coach and mentor” them as well.

I’ve tutored after school math at Moanalua Middle School since January 2013.

PERSONAL
I am a registered Professional Engineer (Hawaii). I continue to work for the US Army and have done so for most of my career. Working with the Army has afforded me the opportunity to develop many skills which should serve me well as an educator. I’ve also had the privilege of working with many professionals from varied backgrounds and traveled throughout the US and parts of Asia and the Pacific.

My son, Aaron, is a dentist here in Honolulu while my daughter, Allyson, is a certified public accountant in New York, NY.
