2016-2017 TLA Cohort Celebration 2017

Na Kumu Alaka’i Celebrates
the 2016-2017 Cohort of Teacher Leaders
April 20, 2017 • Oahu Veterans Center

On April 20, 2017, forty-four exceptional teacher leaders from across the State of Hawaii showcased their action research projects and professional learning goals through a culminating event ~ Na Kumu Alaka’i Learning Fair - 2017. Over 100 guests representing schools, complex areas, state level offices, universities and non-profit organizations celebrated the outstanding work accomplished by these master educators.

It is with bittersweet emotion I bid farewell to the 2016-2017 Cohort, and wish them well on their journeys as assets to the field of education in Hawaii’s public schools!
