AP Computer Science A Teacher


This is my fourth year at Cleveland and second year teaching AP Computer Science A. Outside of the classroom I coach cross country, wrestling, and track. My background is in software development, and apart from my time at Cleveland I work as a software engineer at Slalom Consulting. I get really excited about helping students discover skills and career possibilities that they are passionate about.

Hughes, Jonathan

Athletic Director / Health Teacher


Mr. Hughes is the Cleveland High Athletic Director and has been an educator for a decade now (Madrona, South Shore, Cleveland). As a long time coach, he has created unique opportunities for Central/South Seattle student athletes, including international competition in China. Hughes has coached baseball, softball, basketball, and soccer. In 2019 he was inducted into the North American Fastpitch Association Coaches Hall of Fame. Hughes has three daughters that played softball at Garfield (in 2019 Garfield won the state championship with many players Hughes coached with Seattle Spice Inner City). Hughes was a local attorney before beginning his career in education. Athletics has always been a huge focus, as Hughes played football at Univ. of San Diego and was a cheerleader at Univ. of New Mexico. Hughes has focused on increasing participation for Eagle student athletes and in 2019 brought in two new sports: girls bowling and slowpitch softball. When Hughes is not coaching/teaching, you can find him fishing on his kayak, hanging with his family, or protesting in the streets for Black Lives Matter.

,Personal Message

These are extraordinary times that while riddled with heartache, trauma, and growing inequalities, are also times that are filled with hope and possibility. It is my goal and my duty as an educator - particularly as an educator of color who teaches young people of color - to help those young people uncover their truths and manifest their dreams so that they feel empowered to liberate themselves and the world. 

I'm entering my 6th year as an educator and am officially claiming the title of an abolitionist teacher, which means I am committed to...'the practice of working in solidarity with communities of color while drawing on the imagination, creativity, refusal, (re)membering, visionary thinking, healing, rebellious spirit, boldness, determination, and subversiveness of abolitionists to eradicate injustice in and outside of schools' (Dr. Bettina Love -- We Want To Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom). 

I am excited to be a part of the Cleveland community - go Eagles!

Special Education Teacher

Personal Message

Hello Meany Middle School! My name is Jennifer Kekuna and I am very excited to be joining such an amazing community!

I decided I wanted to pursue a career in education during my own middle school years. It was during this pre-teen time in my life where I began to find my own identity. I had amazing teachers that helped me on this journey, and I made a personal pledge to one day make a difference in the lives of some youth. I have had wonderful teaching experiences over the last few years, all of which have been in diverse environments.

I was born and raised in Hawai'i and later attended college at Gonzaga University in Spokane, where I earned my degree in Special Education. I went back home to begin my teaching career and taught most core subjects in either a resource or self-contained setting for six years. I then made my way back to Washington state, and I've been with Seattle Public Schools at Cleveland High STEM for the past eight years. While at Cleveland, I've had the opportunity to co-teach with many teachers and ensure successes for all students while learning in an inclusion environment.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children. We love being outdoors or watching movies. I also have a passion for dancing hula.

I believe that all students, regardless of their challenges, should have every opportunity to expand their knowledge and become successful. I am excited to begin my new journey with such an awesome school!
