Last Friday most of the class attended the Maui Independent Schools Organization Conference upcountry at Seabury Hall. Ms. Enriquez had a workshop pertaining to the Houkule'a World Wide Voyage. Along with her presentation, Krizhna, Jp, Chanel, and I made a little speech like the one we prepared at the Ritz Carlton. All I could say was that it was easier that expected. If you could get that feeling of intimidation this was certainly at time to understand it. Speaking in front of a room full of teachers talking about our SCHOOL lives ( which is their specially). In the workshop their had to be at least 25 people maybe more. We were told that our workshop was one of the most requested about 60 people wanted to attend. During Ms. Enriquez's presentation all I could feel was nervousness, but as the talk got more detailed I was reminded why we were here to lokomaika'i ( to share) what we know out into the future and into other classrooms. That was one of the key aspects of our reformed education. Overall the MISO conference was sincerely inspiring and I hope that the other teachers understood the message.
