GRADE 8

 

WELCOME TO EIGHT GRADE

My name is Meluus Ulechong and this will be my first year teaching at Maris Stella School.  I am happy to be the homeroom teacher for eight grade.  I am also the Vice Principal of Maris Stella School.

I would like to express my appreciation to Principal Lorenza for her confidence in my abilities leading to my appointment as Vice Principal of Maris Stella School. I would also like to thank the teachers, staff, and students who have taken the time to congratulate me on my new role in the school.

My goals, priorities, and expectations are:

  1. Goals: Improve behavior of students, encourage a can-do attitude in the school environment, prepare students for their next level.
  2. Priorities: Safety for all, adhering to school policies, excellence in sports, academic achievement.
  3. Expectations: Mutual respect within the MSS family from faculty, teachers, parents, and students.     

My focus is on the discipline of the students and any issues that teachers may have that may hinder their ability to effectively manage their classroom. Thank you and let us work together for a successful school year.

I was born and raised in Saipan to Rita Kazuma and Sabo Ulechong. I attended Mt. Carmel School in Saipan and graduated from High School in 1993. After High School, I joined the U.S. Army and served in numerous locations including Kentucky, USA, Saudi Arabia and Kosovo. In 2001, I attended the University of Hawaii School Systems and graduated from the University of Hawaii in 2005 with a degree in Psychology. I returned to the U.S. Army as an officer and served in Hawaii, Iraq, and Korea from 2005 – 2015. I attended the University of Guam Masters of Teaching program from 2015 until 2017 and was a teacher in the Guam Department of Education from 2017 to 2018. My family and I moved to Belau in 2018 after the passing of my mother, Rita Kazuma.

I am married to the former Shawna Kam of Honolulu, Hawaii and I have four children, Risa, 16, Jayse, 13, Ty 10, and Mea, 6.
