Janet Powell - Welcome to Island School

Eight years ago, Janet Powell came from Virginia Beach, Virginia, for a six month visit and ended up staying! She came to help her sister, Liz Hubbard (Student Activities Director), with her newborn twins, who are now 3rd graders.

Janet earned her bachelor's in elementary education from UH Manoa, and is currently working on a masters in educational technology. She taught at King Kaumual‘i Elementary last year before joining our faculty this year as the tech teacher for grades K-6 and the middle school computer science teacher. She is also homeroom teacher for 6th grade girls.

Besides the plus of working with her sister and family, Janet likes the small school atmosphere of Island School. She has attended school events for several years now as Auntie Janet and enjoys the strong sense of community here.
