Teacher Leaders in Action

Congratulations Teacher Leaders

During the 2015-2016 SY, teachers from across the State of Hawaii came together as strangers, grew as professionals, and now venture forward as leaders in their respective areas of expertise. With a focus on action research and driven by the momentum of professional growth, thirty-nine educators shared their projects and school initiatives which supported structures, peers and students. It has been an honor to have learned alongside the members of this cohort, and I look forward to future collaboration opportunities that will enable us to support Hawaii's public schools!

  1. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with all of you (my fellow Teacher Leaders, Sandy, Bobby, and the rest of the PDERI team)! This has been a truly wonderful professional experience! It was such a respite to work with Sandy, our exemplary leader, and my fabulous table group. I'm really sad that I won't be able to see you all on a regular basis but I wish you all the best of luck and I hope we cross paths again soon!
