Hi! Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Ms. Ota. This is my 12th year at Pauoa and I absolutely love teaching here! I have had the pleasure to work with grades K, 1 and 3 in my time here. Here in 2nd grade, we work as a team and collaborate closely with each other as a grade level to promote unity and cohesiveness. Our philosophy this year is to foster independence. Our goals for all students are to be self directed learners, to be responsible citizens and to always try their best! I am so glad that I have the pleasure of working with you and your child this year!
