It’s that time of year again! The holidays are coming, travel plans are coordinated, and gift-buying is on the rise. Amidst all this flurry of activity is the application deadline for a Spring 2022 scholarship from Growing Our Own Teachers on Kauai!
If you are completing your student teaching semester this coming spring, the deadline to submit your scholarship application is November 30, 2021.
Visit our website to upload the required documents and fill in the application. We will get in touch with you to set up an interview with members of our board. We want to help you succeed and fulfill your dreams of becoming a teacher! It’s our mission!
While school is largely being held online via meeting applications, teachers and students still need supplies to help foster learning.
Mrs. Kan-Souza, a former GOOTOK recipient, current board member¹, and a teacher at Wilcox Elementary needs your help! She is online every day with 50 students and her laptop is too old to handle the pressure. She often loses her connection and has to sign back into the meeting, spending precious learning time getting back online and settling the children back into the lesson. With a new laptop, she will be able to remain in control of the class and lesson plans and keep her students’ attention.
Please click here or use the following photo link to donate to her cause so she can run her online classroom more effectively and efficiently! She and her students are grateful for all the help you can provide. Mahalo nui loa!!
