Treena Pieper

Grew up in Waianae, currently live in Kapolei, I am building my own home on the weekends. Personal: I am a mother of 5. i have a 6month old son, two of my boys (8 & 20) speak fluent hawaiian and went to a Hawaiian Immersion school. As a DOE teacher in an english setting I am always interested in any time of English second language classes or understanding to help me be a better parent as well as a better teacher to students whose first language is not English. Just do the sensitivity for my boys, it has heightened awareness for me as a teacher. I am also building my own home on the weekends whichs makes my free time with my family a little challenging. Education: I graduated from University of Phoenix with my masters degree in Secondary Education-Science I also have my BA- Psychology and my AA. Interesting Fact: I was a previous Ms. Hawaii 2010 America?s Super Ms. 2011 and currently am Pageant Gal America 2012. I enjoy volunteering.

Thank u for the reply. That is kind of what I do. I have made copies for my students as a class set. It's just really IRRATATING when I have I search the Internet for material just so I can teach. I am finding that it takes up a lot of time away from other things ...just to hunt down material. Frustrated teacher.
