Aloha Angels get teachers to off-island training

Twenty-five Kauai teachers were given the opportunity to attend a conference on Oahu this past weekend if they could make their own way.

Enter Aloha Angels.

The philanthropic group paid airfare and hotels costs, about $6,500, for teachers from Kauai.

“I thought (the conference) had the potential to have a significant change on the way educators work. Most of my experiences with teachers, I’m always impressed by their dedication and hard work,” said Aloha Angels President Ric Cox.

The Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers conference started as a national event and was brought to a Hawaii level.

Mike Kline, special education preschool teacher at Kilauea School, was grateful for the support.

“It means so much to us,” he said. “They really made it possible for us.”
