UH produced a longer 2 minute and 29 second video that features a poem written and performed by Dr. Clint Anderson.

Anderson lends a powerful voice to inspire next generation of teachers

Sept. 19, 2017

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
