Mahalo Teachers and HSTA

Last updated on February 19, 2021 11:36 am
The Hawaii Teacher Standards Board (HTSB) is thankful to have been part of the Hawaii State Teachers Association (HSTA) 2021 Institute Week on each of the islands this year. The virtual format was innovative and engaging. Thank you to all of the teachers who showed up to our workshops and discussions, and thank you to HSTA for providing the space to share our work with teachers. We were able to provide a licensing workshop that explained what we do as well as vital information for those licensed and interested in becoming licensed. National Board Certified Teacher Ambassadors were able to explain the importance of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher as well as professional development and other supports for assisting teachers in this process. There was also a workshop (inspired by the work of Dr. Troy Hutchings) dedicated to helping teachers consider what it takes to make ethical decisions, which featured a presentation from an expert on Cybertraps for Eductors. All of the presentation slides are provided below. We hope to continue the collaboration with HSTA and teachers as we continue to move forward.
