About Mrs. Kalei Chu
I currently teach 5th grade at Kainalu Elementary. Working with children interested me because my mother was a teacher, now retired, and she used to take me and my sister to school with her on days when we did not have school. My mother had us tutor the 2nd grade students who needed additional help with their phonics and sight words. We also participated in events such as May Day as our school didn't have such activities.
I attended UH Manoa and muddled through my life as my mother did not think that being a teacher paid all that well. After a couple of years though, I applied to the College of Education and received my Bachelors of Elementary Education and Professional Diploma by 1983.
I have taught from Kindergarten to 6th grade in different schools such as Hana Elementary, Hau'ula Elementary, and Kainalu Elementary. Teaching has become more intense as the years have progressed with the many different changes that education has gone through.
