Shannon Adachi
Ānuenue Class Teacher, 4's & 5's


Shannon started her journey with UHMCC as an intern. She graduated thereafter with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, and joined the UHMCC family almost immediately. “I want to provide children the space, materials, and resources needed to express themselves freely.” She’s excited to be working alongside of those with similar goals and passions. As the learning never stops, she plans on continuing her education in early childhood education or some area of child development. In her free time she enjoys DIY projects, hiking, and finding the best Mexican food Hawai‘i has to offer.
