Hawaii Snapchat Directory

Snapchat is huge. Snapchat is also a confusing and sometimes frustrating app to use. Some say it's badly designed specifically to keep old people like me out. But I've still developed quite a fondness for it. The challenge? Finding other Snapchat users to follow. Sure, I can find celebrities behaving badly, but what about everyday people? What about fellow Snapchat users in Hawaii?

After starting a list of local Snapchat users just to be able to recommend them to people new to the app, I decided to just put the list online so anyone can follow local Snapchat Stories. @hisnaps on Instagram or Twitter (so far) is a Hawaii Snapchat Directory. Just point your Snapchat camera at the snapcode to add them!

Stephanie Mew is Hawaii's 2016 Teacher of the Year

Stephanie Mew of Kapunahala Elementary is Hawaii's newest "Teacher of the Year." The news was announced this afternoon at a ceremony at Washington Place, after Mew had been named the Windward District Teacher of the Year last month. The third-grade instructor has taught at the Kaneohe school for 13 years and has 26 years of professional teaching experience.

“I’m thankful for this opportunity, which has given me a chance to reflect and reaffirm why I chose to teach,” Mew said in a statement. “I feel re-energized to do my best and make a significant contribution. This recognition is shared with the entire faculty and staff, who are caring, outstanding teachers and role models.”

Snapchat Stories of Hawaii

If you're into Snapchat, and that's mostly people younger than me, the fact that Hawaii was featured in a global 'Our Story' compilation was a big deal. People outside Hawaii seemed to love it, people in Hawaii were less impressed. I would suspect your opinion would be different if one of your submissions made the cut, however. What did you think?

High Marks for Hang Gliding Hawaii

I was so impressed with our experience with +Eric Nakamoto of +Hang Gliding Hawaii, I insisted on "borrowing" his GoPro memory cards right away to put together a special video to document our amazing morning. My wife Jen​ got to take flight at dawn, and even Katie​ (age 17) and Zac (age 13) got a chance to fly. Six enthusiastic, windblown thumbs up!
