Gabriel Kealoha

Aiea High School

Aiea, HI

My husband Gabriel Kealoha is a high school history and social studies teacher for 9th graders at Aiea High in Hawaii. He is currently facing his second battle with cancer Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) which is terminal! Even while he under goes his potential life saving treatment he still cares so much about his students that he teaches from his hospital bed. Gabriel has been a teacher for the past 18 years and loves the public school system. He believes in helping every kid find their path through life and supports them in every way possible. If it wasn’t for dedicated teacher like Mr. Kealoha (the students call him) then the kids in Hawaii would struggle and some of them would be lost to the system. He comes up with creative ways to get students (every student) involved. Please vote for my husband if anyone deserves a little vacation from full time cancer treatment and teaching it is him. He will always be remembered and live on in the hearts and minds of his students and future leaders of tomorrow. Thank you so much for the votes. Aloha?
