    A Community-Based Teacher Career Ladder
    ( 2016-09-28) Takeno, LaurieAnn
    This presentation highlights the impact teacher turnover in our HIDOE schools is having on education and socioeconomics for 96792 residents. Three reasons are suggested for why education & income statistics in N-W is lower than the state average: (1) chronic high teacher turnover in our schools lays a poor foundation for educational success; (2) pronounced student-teacher cultural mismatch sets teachers and students up for failure; (3) the current teacher career ladder is not community-based.

    ( 2015-04-16) Maunakea, Summer
    What do you see when you put on your mālama ʻāina lens? I see that we are survivors. I feel loved and nourished. I see that our culture is awesome! I see a thriving and resilient people interdependent on one another and our ʻāina. This presentation will focus on a critical practice needed throughout today's education system and within our everyday lives: Mālama ʻĀina--to care for, to protect, and to ensure the continuity of all that feeds and sustains us. I will share my journey through education and how looking through a mālama ʻāina lens has the power to transform our communities, our treasured places, and the future of our people through aloha.
