Kandra Luna, Attendance Secretary and coach for Water Polo and Softball at Aloha High School. Currently I am a student teacher at Sunset High School (January- April) and at Five Oaks Middle School (April-June). Formerly, I was the Attendance Office at Aloha High School. I was one of the first points of contact for the students in the morning, and I always make sure that I welcomed the students coming to school late. I did this because I want them to know that we are happy they came to school and want them to be here. Within this role, I am constantly busy, answering phones, excusing students, sending passes and creating a welcoming environment to all. As a coach, I am helping students develop, maintain and hone in on their sport of choice. I want the athletes to develop their confidence and learn how to work with a team. I am excited to student teach at Sunset High for health and at Five Oaks Middle School and my future as an educator.
