Ōma‘oma‘o (2′s)

Gwen Dufault
‘Ōma‘oma‘o Class Teacher


Gwen believes children’s early years are critical, formative ones — a time when children need ample opportunities to explore the world, things and people. Gwen thrives on this same kind of exploration, and is particularly fascinated with helping to develop music behaviors with young children. When she’s not playing at work, Gwen likes to spend time with family and friends, play outdoors (especially at the beach), and embark on new experiences. Currently, Gwen is pursuing a Masters in Early Childhood Education from University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
Karmen Ferreira
‘Ōma‘oma‘o Class Teacher


Karmen is very happy and excited to join the UHMCC family again! She was previously a student assistant at UHMCC for over three years while earning a BS in Family Resources at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Karmen has a passion for working with children and enjoys watching them learn and grow each day. She believes that early education is crucial for a child's development and wants to provide children with the best environment to learn, grow, and explore. She is looking forward to getting to know the children, families and staff at the Children's Center as well as learning to improve as an early education teacher. Karmen enjoys spending time with her family, especially her nephews and friends. She likes traveling, reading, shopping and going to the beach.
