About Vanessa Ott

Aloha!  Vanessa is a former audio electronics specialist, technical writer, and IT professional.  She became a Hawaii public school teacher in her mid 40s, but quit working for the State of Hawaii Department of Education after five years of smothering bureaucratic frustration infused with very little pedagogy or learning.  She now happily teaches piano lessons to beginning students of all ages at Kailua Music School, tutors children with learning challenges, and helps elderly people with their computers while continuing her journey on the path of  lifelong learning.
