2006 Summer Professional Development Workshop

Twenty-nine teachers from eleven schools participated in our 2nd Annual Summer Professional Development Workshop from July 17 to July 21, 2006 at Kokokahi YWCA in Kāne‘ohe. They experienced hands on training with the TI-84 calculator from one of the top math educators in the nation, Sister Alice Hess; listened to some great mo‘olelo from cultural speaker Liko Hoe, among others; and learned how to use stereodigital microscopes and visited places like Hawai‘i Nature Center's Green Machine under the supervision and guidance of E Ola Pono's own Chad Durkin.
