Ms. Shauna Tanaka Hirota
Hello! I am Ms. Tanaka Hirota and I will be your Social Studies teacher. I have been teaching at Moanalua High School since January 2004, but I was out on maternity leave raising my 2 boys for about 3 years! a "long" time ago, I attended Castle High School (Kaneohe), Pacific University (Oregon) for my bachelors of arts and Chaminade University (Honolulu) for my Masters in Secondary Education. I have enjoyed not only teaching here at MoHS, but also advising the Class of 2004 and the Class of 2008. My proudest accomplishments have been being named the MoHS Teacher of the Year in 2008 and becoming a National Board Certified Teacher in 2010. I am very excited and happy to be back and look forward to having a great year with all my new students!
