Teacher Mentors

Our Teacher Mentors are Boys & Girls Club Hawai’i staff and Hawai’i DOE teachers working with K-5 students.

Teacher Mentors complete a hybrid Professional Development course.

Professional Development Topics include:

  • Ka Pilina Noʻeau II Math & Science Learning Model and Curricula
  • Culturally responsive teaching,
  • Universal Design for Learning,
  • Problem-based learning
  • Integrated STEM curriculum

After completing the PD, Teacher Mentors have the opportunity to use the MSL Model curriculum in an authentic environment during our STEM camps.

Teacher Mentors can earn PDE3 credits for completing the course.
