How does culture influence primary teaching in Hawaii?

Primary Boy

While on our trip to Laie Hawaii we interviewed several primary teachers that work at the Polynesian Cultural Center to find out how culture has an influence on their teaching.

In this interview we visit with Misty Rose a floor manager at one of the restaurants at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie Hawaii.  She has taught a CTR 7 class for nearly 3 years and has always been in primary callings as an adult.  We learn from her how she deals with the challenges of teaching a class with so many different cultures blended together.  Her class and many primary classes in Hawaii can easily have children with heritage from Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand, Fiji, Japan, Hawaii and many other diverse places.  It’s fascinating to hear her experiences.

Bottom line is the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and touches lives all over the world. Follow the spirit which will guide and inspire you how to best touch your class as you pray for inspiration.
