Grow With Us Virtual Conference

Two-Day Event: July 23-24, 2020

Registration Closed

The Grow With Us theme embodies e hoʻoulu kekahi i kekahi,  which means to grow with one another. As we gather, we are inspired to step up and lead with local talent and wisdom at the forefront. Learning together helps us to support one another while growing our strengths and our community of leaders and learners. We aim to engage colleagues by connecting our essential work with students and sharing practical ideas that can be integrated into future lessons. The relevant professional learning and interactive formats will challenge us to move beyond our typical experiences and expand our hearts and minds to grow as educators!
