Jill Doying — Administrative Support Specialist
Jill grew up in Canada, and first came to Hawaiʻi to attend BYU in Lāʻie, Oahu. There, she fell in love with Hawaiʻi, and took classes in Hawaiian arts, culture and history. Jill came to LCPCS in January of 2017 after a diverse career on the mainland, with skills in banking, grant proposal writing, and crisis intervention. She loves this coast because it feels like old Hawaiʻi; "It feels like itʻs supposed to feel," she says.

Denise comes from a large family, many of whom have ties to the school in Laupāhoehoe. She herself graduated from LHES in 1997, and her son currently attends the school. She worked at LHES before the conversion, and then spent roughly four years teaching pre-school before returning to LCPCS in 2012. When not at school, she says, she loves to read and take her son to the beach.

Jenny Bach — Farm to School Program Coordinator
Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, Jenny graduated from the first charter school in the state. She credits West Hawaiʻi Explorations Academy, with its hands-on, project-based curriculum for opening up new worlds to her. In college, she worked on an organic farm in Puna, and found her passion in the art of growing food. About 15 years ago she adopted her first bee hives, and soon after created Bee Love Hawaiʻi and the Honeybee Education Program. With grant funding from various sources, Jenny put together an educational program, and traveled from school to school. In this process, she found LCPCS. Jenny now manages the Farm to School program, and teaches in both the school garden and the school kitchen.
