Hawaii Class

An Innovative Program to Benefit Hawaii’s Children

We created a program that is transforming educators’ understanding of young children’s math development.

Educators from public and private schools across the islands meet several times during this yearlong professional development program, to focus on early math concepts. With the generous support of the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation, participants receive in-person and online training, and also network with peers who share the same passion and desire to improve their classroom skills. Overwhelmingly, participants in this program describe feeling more confident about teaching math in their classrooms.

The program was developed with our client partners, Chaminade University, the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Center for Early Education and Development (CEED), and KCAA Preschools of Hawaii.
