Anderson lends a powerful voice to inspire next generation of teachers

The University of Hawaiʻi launched a new “Be a Hero. Be a Teacher.” campaign aimed at addressing Hawaiʻiʻs teacher shortage.

The voice of the campaign was provided by Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe (High School) Dean of Studies Dr. Clint Anderson, through a slam poetry performance of a poem he wrote. Anderson himself is an alumnus of the UH Hilo School of Education.

Through “Be a Hero. Be a Teacher.”, UH encourages high school and college students, as well as working professionals, to consider the importance and benefits of the teaching profession. See more at www.beaherobeateacher.com.

This work aligns critically with KS SP2020 goal two, recognizing the critical role that a highly qualified and dedicated workforce is towards an improved educational system. KS has been a tireless supporter and advocate of credentialing our own kumu and teachers across the state through the National Board Certified Teacher program.
