My name is Mary Ann Kurose and I teach Strategic Reading (grades 9-12), AVID (grade 12), Web Design, and Newswriting.
I am a proud product of the Hawaii Department of Education system and local university. While I spent my first year of teaching on the Big Island, Radford became my forever home in 1997.
My experiences with my own children have shaped my teaching philosophy, so I strive to be the teacher I would want for my own daughters. It is with this compelling reason that my daily mantra is to be the best teacher I can be for all my students.
Please use this site as a resource, in addition to checking Google Classroom. Use the links at the top of the page to navigate to your course and period where you will find class handouts, agendas, and other relevant material. I am very excited to get to know each of you this year.
You can relax. We will have a Ram-tastic year together.
