The purpose of this service learning experience is for you to engage with your school community by tapping into your “gifts” – passions, skills, knowledge, resources.  We want to see you apply these gifts towards meeting a need of your school community.  This experience is about you getting involved within your school community, contributing through service.

My last ten years before becoming an educator, I have been a successful  freelance website developer to  owning my own registered web hosting business. My skills and talents with online marketing and design are of professional quality standards,  and I wanted to use my talents at the school and possibly have a course for the students to run the page. 

This artifact is connected to leadership and collaboration because as a student teacher I am collaborating with my mentor, students, and administration to develop a website to showcase our school.

As of now, there are about 3-4 different Molokai High School websites. One of these 4 websites are one of the ones I created in 2012 while I was in High school. You can see that this isn’t my first time being involved with this. After graduating and working in New York for 9 years I am determined to collect all of the data and information to create the perfect site including all of the needed functions for schedules and meetings. I am still working with Perry (Mentor Teacher) and Katina (Principal) with getting all of the site credentials along with planning the layout. The process is in the works and is going to be an on going project. I hope to build the basic functions of the website and build lesson plans on web development to teach students along with helping the school.
