Had the bike fallen over, the child could have been seriously injured.” L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor In the past few weeks there has been quite a bit of controversy dealing with parenting on Kwaj. It seems to me the parents on island are more worried about the repercussions of alerting the police that they have a missing child, than the repercussions of not watching their child altogether. If you don’t watch your kids then the police or child services need to get involved. I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve seen toddlers roaming the island with no supervision, or playing in the middle of the street. And when the parents of these children are made aware of the situation their remark is almost always “oh it’s Kwaj, what’s the worst that could happen”. It’s this sort of complacency that will end up having a harmful effect on Kwaj kids. But why are the parents so complacent, very few of the drivers on island actually drive the speed limit, or stop at stop signs, there are ditches and storm drains every other block, and not to mention we live on an island, you can’t walk too far before hitting water. I fear that it will take something tragic to happen before the Kwaj frame of mind changes. What happens when these families PCS back to the mainland where there is more traf c and the criminal element? — Name withheld by request

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2006 3Roi safety record recognized Roi-Namur goes 14 months without recordable accidentBy J.J. KleinReporterEveryone who ew aboard the commuter plane from Roi-Namur to Kwajalein on July 26 owes Hart Rubon a huge kommol tata. Rubon, a traf c agent at the Roi air eld, stopped the pilots from taking off when he saw that the handle on the aircraft door was not in the locked position. “Reuben recognized something was wrong and he took the safety initiative to stop something before it turned into a later mishap. That is something all of us share; the desire to be safe, recognize mishaps and correct them,” said Don Davis, Airport Operations manager. This commitment to safety, at all employee levels, is why the people on Roi-Namur celebrated 14 months of unrecordable accidents with a party on Saturday, where Hart was publicly recognized with a special certi cate for his actions. “We had another [party] like this last year and it was just as big, but this one is even better because we don’t have any recordable accidents in the past year. I think it gave everyone a good feeling that they not only went a whole year without an accident but that they’re actually getting recognized for it,’ said Power Plant Supervisor Joe Woods. The Safety Celebration, attended by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander and Kwajalein Range Services upper level management, was kicked off with a lunch feast of chicken, barbeque ribs, deep sea sh, reef sh, lobster and coconut crab provided by Caf Roi and the Roi-Namur community. Several employees donated the deep sea and reef sh they caught the day before, making even the meal a “community effort” according to Tony Stephens, Community Activites director. Employees were treated to an afternoon off to relax and enjoy music from the Dirty Rascals, or participate in a game of volleyball, softball and golf. After lunch Col. Steveson Reed, USAKA commander, John Pickler, KRS president and Jeff DeLong, Radar manager complimented the Roi-Namur community for its exceptional safety record and presented each department with a plaque for excellence. More than three quarters of the departments were 41 months accident free. The potential for accidents is great considering the nature of the work on Roi-Namur, where employees wear harnesses to conduct weekly maintenance on a radar antenna and are exposed to potentially lethal circumstances. “It’s really a remarkable accomplishment when you talk about any industrial workplace, which is what all of Roi-Namur is, going 14 months without any kind of accident, especially a recordable accident,” said Woods. “Anyone who is involved in any way whether they are working or planning the work, has got to be proud of themselves.” The last recordable injury for Roi-Namur occurred last June when an employee accidentally stabbed himself in the abdomen. He was trying to cut a scoop out of a plastic container when his knife slipped. Recordable accidents are injuries requiring medical attention beyond rst aid. “It is impressive to not have a single OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health] recordable,” said DeLong. This is the rst time in history that Roi-Namur has not had an OSHA recordable over a 12 month period.” That is a signi cant safety improvement when compared to the six recordables from 2004 according to statistics compiled by Safety Engineer II John Pyle. USAKA and KRS management have been very visible in preaching safety as a priority, but DeLong pointed out that “the entire Roi workforce is highly engaged” in this issue. This is a sentiment held by many in the community including Ricky Everette, ALCOR/MMW Radar Field Maintenance engineer. In Everette’s workplace they use the acronym B.A.S.E. Behavior, Attitude, Sense and Environmentto educate employees about and reinforce safety in the workplace. “We use that for everybody from the administrative secretary to the people climbing the radar antenna,” said Everette. He attributed RoiNamur’s recent safety record to his observation that “for someone to be safe it doesn’t have to come from Floyd [Corder, Operations manager]. Everybody’s point of view is important, everybody contributes.” Corder has heard people downplaying Roi-Namur’s safety successes as just a matter of luck. On Saturday he asked the community to consider the idea that luck is a byproduct of preparation. “You guys take a look at your jobs and the hazards associated with them and then [you] plan and prepare for them. You’re going to have luck,” he said. “We’ve led the way in safety during the past year, and I don’t see us changing that. We’re going to continue moving forward, so if anybody says we’re lucky, we are.” It was a little little bit of luck and a whole lot of training, preparation and safety awareness invested in Rubon, that kept a plane load of passengers safe last month. “We’ve led the way in safety during the past year, and I don’t see us changing that. We’re going to continue moving forward, so if anybody says we’re lucky, we are.”— Floyd Corder, Roi operations manager

Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass It’s back-to New teachers bring very diverse backgrounds to Kwajalein schools4 When Christina Davis moved to Kwajalein from Colorado Springs, Colo. she was ready to trade in her ski boots for scuba gear. Having grown up in Okinawa, Japan, Davis really missed the ocean and “Kwajalein de nitely has a lot of that to offer.”Davis is just as enthusiastic about her position at the high school. “My goal as a social studies teacher is to facilitate students to become active, independent, and effective contributors to a global society,” said Davis. “I realize I have the responsibility to communicate clear expectations to my students and to recognize each student’s unique personality and individual abilities.” Davis brings a unique outlook to teaching social studies as she is uent in Japanese and can speak knowingly of the Japanese culture. Ask her what is the best thing about being a teacher and she is quick to say the students. Good answer. Living and teaching o verseas is not h ing ne w fo r Ann e J a h n ke Al t h ou gh s h e is Britsh Anne grew up in B razi l an d h as taug h t e lementar y and middle s c h oo l in En gl an d B razi l an d Bu lg aria. Ten years of teaching has taught Anne that it is her job “to motivate students Anne Jahnke, Sixth grade teacherto want to learn. This means providing them with opportunities to explore interesting and relevant subject matter. Students also need guidance in making the most of their learning experience.” This sixth grade teacher plans to connect with parents by communicating what is happening in the classroom, asking for parental input, and expecting parents to monitor their children’s homework. Weekends, according to Anne, were made for swimming, tennis and playing the piano. Anne arrived on Kwajalein with her husband, Jonathan, a new teacher at the high school, and her three school-age boys. “My husband and I enjoy the overseas experience,” said Jahnke. “We like to travel and meet new people. We believe Kwajalein will be a good experience for our children.” Jonathan Jahnke, 8th grade world history; 7th grade keyboarding; high school computer applications and athletic directorWearing many hats seems natural for the man from the small town of Alden, Minn. In the northern burg of 700 people, Jonathan taught, coached, led and had his ngers in just about everything. “I was the athletic director, varsity volleyball coach and head boy’s and girls’ golf coach,” he said, this was on top of his teaching duties while working for the last ve years in his hometown. “We were quite happy in Minnesota, but I wanted to give our kids another perspective on the world,” Jonathan said. Jahnkes’ sons are Jake, in the 7th grade; Sam in the 3rd grad and Ben in the 1st grade. “When we were overseas before, the boys were really too young to remember much. I hope that while we are here they will be able to see and do some things that they couldn’t living in rural Minnesota. I also think the school will give my boys a top education and I like it that they will have classmates from a various places.” Jonathan’s philosophy in the classroom is simple, “I think you have to believe that every child can learn Christina Davis, high school social studies teacher

They keep me young, (well, active, anyway). I also like to learn and to keep doing and trying new things. Teaching allows me to still be a student.” Jonathan is just as busy out of school as in. “Most of my activities are athletic golf, basketball, sailing “Call me Deb,” said he t a ll blo n de wi th a d azz l ing smi l e Debra Johnson, elementary school assistant principal as well as adult and community education lead Celeste Fazioli Jazzmyne Craven Some kindergartners have a sayBy J.J. KleinReporterAll over the island children and parents are getting together their school supplies and focusing on heading back to school. For those little people in their Wonder Years, the age ve set, this is the exciting beginning of their 13 year academic journey. If it is true that all I really need to know I learned in kindergarten then there is a lot of wisdom to be found at the sandbox at school. T he Hourglass asked the newest students, “What do you think you are going to learn in kindergarten?” “I don’t really know. My mom’s been telling me a lot about sea animals and all sorts of things about school. I know a lot about dolphins. And playtime.” “Reading and science. Learning stuff. Play on the playground. Music. Computer class. Math.” “Lots of big kids go to kindergarten and they have to clean up the toys. And I’m going to learn my ABCs and my numbers, and wear dress up clothes. There are lots of numbers and lots of learning and homework.”Nicholas Reese “How to subtract, and just learn. They have Halloween parties and Christmas and Valentine’s day parties. I think they do it every single month, but January. They move all the desks and put up decorations.” Joe Miller Celeste Fazioli and triathlon training. The Sunday before we came out I nished my rst Half-Ironman [1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13 mile run], I also hope to scuba dive some more. The last time I dove was in Brazil 15 years ago.” While it might be hard to believe, Jonathan hope is to learn how to relax and enjoy life during his tenure on Kwajalein. Johnson’s move to Kwajalein is a big change; she’s coming from the mountains of Colorado. “I don’t know how, but want to learn how to sail, spear sh, surf, and all of the other water related sports,” Johnson said. That’s a switch from the llama treks she used to take in the summer in Colorado, as well as downhill skiing in the winter.Though being out of doors has always appealed to Johnson, her heart belongs with students. “Although I’m not currently in the classroom, I believe you need to make learning relevant and meaningful to the

Being a t eacher is the perfect ob f or any mom – I have the same schedule as my son.” Heilman’s son, Raul Herrera, 16, will be a senior at Kwajalein High School this year. Heilman has been teaching for eight years, “As I’ve Melissa Heilman, elementary computer and remedial readingMississippian Fritch s experiencin g her rst overseas j o b a n d t h in k s l ivin g on K wa j a l ein wi ll b e a u n i que exper i ence fo r he r an d he r f am ly Fritc h’ s h us b an d T omm y wor k s at En v ironmenta l Sa f et y never had the luxury of working in a school with a computer teacher, I’ve always been responsible for teaching computer curriculum and typing skills to my students.” When not in the classroom, Heilman likes to read, bake, quilt, and do ceramics, paint, crafts, and “Anything to do with the water.” The Texan described her teaching philosophy as “Creating a positive, hands-on learning environment where the children feel safe to be curious and inquisitive. Learning is fun and can be contagious.” She added that she enjoys getting parents involved in their child’s education by recruiting their help, keeping them informed and making sure they feel welcome in the class. She thanked the Kwajalein community for their warm welcome, “Their generosity, advice, and kind ways have helped us feel welcome in our new home.” Veda Fritch, math teacherand Health. They have three children, Ashley, 17, a senior; Edwin, 11, a 6th grader and Beth Ann, 7, in the second grade. Armed with ten years as a high school math teacher, Fritch has learned a thing or two about helping students learn. “Each child learns differently. I try to use a variety of teaching strategies to help each student. I am very open to students’ questions and work individually with students as much as possible. I feel the most important thing for a student to learn is a positive attitude.” She will be teaching 7th grade intermediate algebra, 8th grade algebra I, pre-calculus and AP calculus. student; they are more likely to be intrinsically motivated for their own learning,” she said. Johnson learned about teaching on Kwajalein from a Kwaj kid, Ed Taylor. He worked at the same school as Johnson near Denver. “He said the people and location are a cut above the majority of places I could go. Let me think,” she mused, “the opportunity to come to a tropical paradise? I wanted to combine my two biggest loves, working with kids and new adventures.” Judy Kirchner, kindergarten teacherEveryone in Kirchner’s classroom will be new to Kindergarten this year, including Kirchner. A 13-year resident of Kwajalein, most people will recognize Kirchner as a coach of the Kwajalein Swim Team, a Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club Education Assistance Committee member and a volunteer at the Jabro Private School on Ebeye. Add Kindergarten teacher to the list. “I love teaching kindergarten because it’s the rst actual school experience for most children and they usually arrive at school fresh and eager to learn. Kindergarteners (and their parents) are almost always excited about reaching this milestone,” said Kirchner. “I want to take advantage of the enthusiasm and ll every day with hands-on activities, lots of learning opportunities, fun and laughter, and read, read, read!” Kirchner is married to Tim Kirchner, Technical director at Reagan Test Site and has a 14-year-old daughter, Julianne, and 12-year-old son, Graham. “My husband jokes that he has to work to ‘support my teaching habit’ because I spend so much of my income on teaching supplies,” said Kirchner. “Most teachers I know also spend a good bit of their own money on supplies.” For Kirchner this expense is offset when she observes “the pleasure they [her students] take in their accomplishments as they master so many skills.” School begins Friday, with Kindergarten orientation on Thursday at 3 p.m. in their assigned classrooms. There will be an elementary school parent open house, in the classrooms, from 6 to 8 p.m., Aug. 24. There will be a junior and senior high school back to school night will be from 7 to 8:45 p.m., Aug. 25. The back to school night begins in the multi-purpose room and continues through the classrooms.
