Hōkū (3’s)

Gwen Dufault
Hōkū 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.
