New Teachers Fill As Enrollment Goes Up
New teachers at MHS included Mr. Gary Abe, Mrs. Anne King and Miss Raynette Takizawa and Janice Kawamoto.
After rumors of discontinuation, Mr. Abe’s agriculture classes undertook new projects and cultivated many crops, such as corn, string beans, and cucumbers. In coordination with the woodshop classes ag students built new platforms for potted plants and made new plant boxes.

In Mrs. King’s TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) classes, immigrant students learned English colloquialism as well as adaptations to American Life. Mrs. King took the classes on excursions to places such as Sea Life Park for more learning experiences.
Miss Kawamoto jointed the Home Ec Department when Mrs. Jane Yamashiroya took over a new Americanization classes. She in turn took Mrs. Yamashiroya’s classes in Family Clothing. Increased enrollment in the Math Department brought the addition of Miss Takizawa, who taught mathematics.As a result of federal funding for CETA (Comprehensive Employment Training Act), Mrs. Aileen Waiau and Miss Jane Ebisuya became the campus aide and acculturation worker, respectively. Their purpose was to prevent fights and quarrels on campus by counseling.
