Theda Hiranaka

Theda Hiranaka is a gem of an employee and a super star at Raisbeck Aviation High School. Theda joined the school at its’ inception in 2004 as a parent volunteer and quickly endeared herself to the staff. By 2007 she was hired on as an employee and has been making a positive impact on students, families and the school culture.

Theda absolutely loves Raisbeck Aviation High School. She knows every student by name, strength and need and remembers every student that has come through the doors. She is our top cheerleader for student activities and has attended numerous games, fundraisers and dances over the years. She and her husband are known for their incredible dancing skills at the prom! She continually gives back to the community and especially takes care of those students who need a little bit extra. She is a positive conduit with our parents and is thorough and professional in her job.  She is mom to so many – providing that extra smile, hug or shoulder to any student that needs it. Theda is a loyal friend to all of her colleagues at the school. She will do anything to lend a hand and takes great pride in a job well done because she believes in our students and their future and lives out our philosophy that we are truly a family.

I can think of no more deserving staff member to receive a Ducky than the MOM of our school for the last 17 years – Theda Hiranaka
