MATT ZITELLO • EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR • mzitello@myhta.org

I have been with HTA since its very early days and I could not be more passionate about our mission to address the unique strengths and challenges of every child. My career started with a love of geology so I initially became a science teacher. I joined the very young HTA in 2010 and was a founding member of the O‘ahu middle school teacher team before I transitioned into administration on the Waipahu campus. When I’m not working or with family and friends, you can find me surfing (mostly the North Shore), cooking, or traveling the world.

TRACI SULLIVAN • ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR • tsullivan@myhta.org

I loved school. It’s a place where I belonged, where I had inspirational teachers, an amazing friend group, and where I learned new things. I came to Hawai‘i after graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in environmental, population, and organismic biology. I started with HTA as a Learning Coach, then joined the staff as a math and science teacher, before becoming the Kaua‘i campus director in 2018. I’m still heading up the campus, but this year I’m also stepping into a new role as HTA’s associate director. It’s my job now, but I still love being in school.

HTA Learning Coaches

Family is important to us. We strive to create an open and inclusive school where parents are involved in their children’s eduction. You are your child’s Learning Coach, working with teachers and staff to provide a full spectrum of support.

“HTA is different from any other school because they have been able to blend parents, teachers, and students in a way that is the most beneficial for the student. I love that I have a much deeper role in my children’s education while they get the benefits of traditional school. As a Learning Coach, I am able to see where my child is struggling or achieving and am able to supplement accordingly.”

Rosanna Waller, Kona high school Learning Coach. Rosanna is also the most amazing leader of our Kona parent ‘Ohana Committee (which we call HOC).
