CONGRATULATIONS to our Fall 2021 Grant Recipients!

We are Growing Our Own Teachers on Kauai, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting Kauai’s aspiring student teachers to complete their education. Our goal is to provide grants to teacher candidates entering their final student teaching semester who are in need of financial assistance. We have expanded our reach to include aspiring secondary educators. We have also reached past the University of Hawaii and included students from other teacher credentials programs. As always, recipients must have strong ties to Kauai and be willing to teach for at least three years on Kauai. 

We want to congratulate our Fall 2021 recipients: Jacqueline Bernaldes, Tory Singer, and Athelstane Schott. They are truly called to the teaching profession. They all come highly recommended by the school staffs of the schools where they are working. We wish them every success!

With the lack of teachers on Kauai approaching a critical point, Growing Our Own Teachers on Kauai is dedicated to identifying the ways in which we can help alleviate this issue.
