Calling all current and aspiring educators—find fellowship and inspiration in this first-ever virtual talk story forum presented by the Hawaii Education Association! The pandemic has disrupted our classrooms but also created opportunities for new ideas and innovation. Learn from our guest speakers and connect with fellow educators from all across the state on how they are navigating and adjusting to the new teaching environment.

Engage With Other Educators

After the key presentations, the webinar will be transformed into interactive “hallway chats” where you’ll get a chance to ask questions, provide feedback, and exchange ideas. This peer learning and networking event is open to all Hawaii educators, administrators, teaching assistants, student teachers, and anyone interested in a career in education.

This virtual event is free, thanks to the sponsors who value educators in Hawai‘i.
