The school year has started and I hope that it is going smoothly for all of you! Just like students, one of the things I look forward to as the year starts is the chance to see my colleagues again. I look forward to seeing all of you at the upcoming conferences we have planned for this year.
Our HBEA Fall Conference at Leeward Community College on Saturday, September 27, will help educators focus on their mental health, stress management, safety, in addition to keeping us current with new technology. Co-chairs Kay Ono and Peggy Regentine have secured an interesting slate of speakers who will be sure to introduce new and useful information to you. The details and registration form are on this site, so please share this information with your colleagues. We look forward to having you join us at the Fall Conference.
Thank you to the 2014-2015 HBEA Executive Board who met in June to plan the calendar for the upcoming school year. HBEA is fortunate to have an enthusiastic and experienced group on the Board. Your president and president-elect are both from neighbor islands and are relying on technology and the hard work of the Oahu board members to organize and coordinate the activities this year. Thank you to all our HBEA Executive Board members for their commitment to making a difference in our profession.
