Biographical Information

Attendance has greatly improved at Olomana School in Kailua, largely due to an innovative program called "Mixed Plate," developed by lead teacher Ellen Schroeder. The program offers an integrated curriculum that includes five subjects (English, math, science, social studies and horticulture/woodshop) and a team of five teachers, and is designed to address multiple intelligences. The program is now taught to half the students at Olomana School. Ms. Schroeder also created the award-winning "Partners" program, which aims to teach students about civics, current events and government; and the "Munchie Store," a snack bar for students, from which profits are used to recognize teacher achievements, purchase school supplies and subsidize student council projects.
