Hālāwai is gathering a list of teachers who work in any and all learning environments and communities. We want to know who you are so we all can share opportunities and resources. We know you have creative ideas and a natural thirst for knowledge. We can learn from each other. We want to celebrate your good work. If you are a kumu, educator, mentor, coach, counselor, professor or just have aloha for helping folks grow and learn, please send an email with any questions or ideas to John-Mario at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hālāwai board member Kapena offers the name of this special hui: The Kukui tree has many uses. It’s mostly known for the kukui nuts’ use as candles or torch lights. The kukui is a symbol of enlightenment.
