LIHUE – Jonathon Medeiros, a teacher at Kauai High School, is one of 17 public school educators selected as part an inaugural Hawaii State teachers fellowship program.
The fellows represent a range of outstanding Hawaii teachers chosen from a pool of candidates from across the state. The Hope Street fellows were selected for their strong individual commitments to improving learning outcomes for children. They will serve as leaders among their peers for the next 12 months.
Together with the Department of Education and the Hawaii State Teachers Association, the fellows will voice teacher perceptions and potential solutions to issues educators face in implementing the Hawaii Common Core.
“The Hawaii State Teacher Fellows have a critical charge ahead to expand engagement of their peers, by their peers. They stand ready to lead in this role as they lead every day in their respective classrooms,” said Dan Cruce, vice president for education, Hope Street Group.
