Host

Hi, I am Josh Reppun, former chef, hotel manager and (for 17 years) teacher. I was born and raised in Kahaluʻu on the island of Oahu, went to a public elementary school and a private middle and high school. I have an undergraduate degree in history and a masters in education foundations. I currently work full time at Apple, Inc. as a sales specialist. I am the founder of Plexus Education, LLC and DBA, which is DBA @MLTSinHawaii, “a movement” founded by extraordinary people dedicated to developing public, private and charter school conversations around Ted Dintersmith’s film, Most Likely to Succeed and his book, What School Could Be. This site houses information about my MLTS/WSCB projects, and my What School Could Be in Hawaiʻi podcast series. Ted Dintersmith and I see clear evidence that Hawaiʻi is rapidly becoming a model to the nation and the world of education innovation, creativity and imagination. We believe that Hawaiʻi is living proof of many waʻa (canoe), one voyage. If you have questions or ideas, please contact me at mltsinhawaii@gmail.com, or text me at 808.342.0504. Find more information about my work @joshreppun, @MLTSinHawaii, or search Facebook for Most Likely to Succeed in Hawaiʻi. Mahalo! To see my film, Ka Helena  Aʻo: The Learning Walk, which documents Ted Dintersmith’s first visit to Hawaiʻi and the last stop on his 50-state tour, see above. Kelsey Matsu was my Co-Producer and Director. Her work can be found at KelseyMatsu.com. The film was shot on location in May of 2016 at Mid-Pacific Institute, SEEQS PCS, West Hawaiʻi Explorations Academy PCS, Hawaiʻi Preparatory Academy, Waipahu High School and Kanehunamoku Voyaging Academy.
