Aloha, my name is Candice Ota. This year I am teaching 6-9 Social Studies, AVID, and 7-8 PE. To just say a little about myself, I am born and raised in Hilo, am a proud graduate of Hilo High School. I have received my Masters in Arts in Teaching degree at UH Hilo and is a licensed social studies teacher! I have started by teaching career at Waiakea Intermediate School where I taught social studies and science for 2 years, then I moved on to teach at Hilo High before I came here to Paauilo Elem. & Inter. School. I love being here teaching your children and being part of this community!
