Waiau Elementary School

Mrs. Yolanda Shim » Home


Hello, I am "MS. YO."
I grew up in Aiea and moved to Pearl City in 1997. I was introduced to Waiau Elementary when my children started school in 1998. As a stay home mom, I had the time to volunteer and help out in the class room. I chaperoned on their field trips an enjoyed spending time helping with small reading groups. I fell in love with the staff and campus.
As a parent I found myself surrounded by the people that were going to show my children what it means to be part of a caring community.

In 2001, I became part of this awesome community of caring people. I have the opportunity to spend my day in the fully self contained special education classroom, help with lunch room supervision, and tutor. As an Educational Assistant in the Special Education Department I learned to have compassion for others, be very patient, always smile, and know that every child learns at their own pace and we are there to always support them.

Until we meet someday...So long for now...
