Masaru Uchino

2016-17 Milken Educator Award

 

On February 2, 2017, Momilani prepared for an assembly. The assembly wasn't for a holiday, it wasn't for a fundrasiing kickoff, this was a secret special assembly! As students came into the cafeteria, there were many new faces of adults standing all around. Some had suits on, some had leis, and some were setting up big video cameras.

 

It wasn't long before the assembly started and the many students and adults listened in to find out why we were assembling in the cafe. A man named Lowell Milken began to talk about leadership, excellence, and teachers. He mentioned that someone at Momilani was about to receive a Milken Educator Award! The suspense was killing everyone!

 

Our very own Mr. Masaru Uchino received a very prestigious award called the Milken Educator Award! He even received $25,000 for being the amazing educator that we all know him to be! Mr. Uchino becomes the 74th teacher in Hawaii to win this honor and we couldn't be happier to have him at Momilani...

Grade 6 Drama

Cinderella: A Modern Makeover

 

On Thursday, January 26th, the final performance at Momilani for this group of students, the 6th grade class performed two shows of this wonderful play. With the expert guidance of Mrs. Shannon Winpenny and teachers Maile Yasui and Todd Tashiro, the students were able to bring the play to life on our stage!

 

Cinderella's friends are worried -- she spends all day cleaning and talking to rodents!  A wicked family must be to blame.  But that's not it...

Momilani Minecraft Projects

 

Minecraft is an open-ended single and multi-player game world where students can explore, design, and create while practicing problem solving and critcal thinking skills.

 

When we started using this program at Momilani, we began by teaching math concepts such as multiplication, conversions, decimals, graphing and probability. To date, there have been approxmately 40 math based lessons / maps created within MinecraftEdu.

 

Since those ealy years, the use of Minecraft has evolved and we now utilize it to incorporate real life problems with content through a project based learning environment...
