Aloha Kākou,
Welcome, My name is Josette Kaʻiwaokalani Germano. I have been at Nānāikapono Elementary School for 17 years. I have taught 1st grade the first 6 years of teaching then I adventured to be Math specialist in Grades 4 and 5 for about 2 years.   Later I adventured into our beautiful State of the Art, Nānāikapono Community Museum teaching Hawaiian Studies for 3 years.  The last 5 years of my teaching, I have been working as an Academic Coach and Parent/Community Engagement Coordinator.   This year I am fortunate to go back into the classroom to teach 2nd grade students and practice on the skills and best practices that I learned when being out of the classroom.  This year I am also fortunate to be placed in the classroom that I started 17 years ago.  It has brought back memories to my first years of teaching. 
I am honored and pleased to continue working in this wonderful community.  I am very excited to work with my grade 2 students and their families this year. There will be many new learning for all of us as we take our journey through this school year.     
Please email me if you have any questions.  Please click on the link below to our 2nd Grade Website to see any assignments or updated information.
