HSTA’s 2020 Pono Award winner continues social justice work during COVID-19 crisis

Congratulations, Ilima Intermediate STEM teacher Sarah “Mili” Milianta-Laffin!

“I tend to say I’m a scrappy Title I public school kid turned scrappy Title I public school teacher. We know hungry kids can’t learn. Let’s feed them. Hot kids can’t learn. Let’s get those ACs going. If kids are embarrassed to wear dirty uniforms on campus, let's get a campus laundry. It’s just the work teachers do.”
