Al Nagasako led the HSTA from 2010 to 2014 following his retirement as principal at Kapolei High School where he spent nine years building statewide recognized programs of excellence.
The program allows teachers in the State of Hawaii Department of Education to obtain much-needed supplies, books, furniture, electronics, equipment and other basic necessities for their classrooms with grants up to $500.
Nine years after a Kauai woman was brutally murdered, her family and friends are renewing their call for help.
Our professional development courses ensure our members are able to provide a stable, nurturing learning environment that supports students' learning needs.
Heading into this week's summer leadership training, Kaimuki High School teacher Jade Pham says she was "super excited about being involved with HSTA and growing closer to my colleagues who are passionate about advocating for teachers and students." She didn't expect her first-grade teacher from Palolo Elementary, Suanne Kim, to be one of them!
