This year HSTE has assisted neighbor island teachers in attending the Hawaii Educational Leadership Summit, Schools of the Future, the Deeper Learning Conference and the annual International Society for Technology in Education Conference.  Don't miss out on an opportunity to grow your community of colleagues and resources.
