Why HSTA believes in professional development
Hawaii State Teachers Association teachers are deeply committed to every student’s success. We want all students to achieve their full potential as individuals and become productive citizens who make positive contributions to society.
We believe that educators provide the stable, nurturing, inspiring environment that makes it possible to teach each student and provide individual attention to each student’s learning needs. To this end, we work to ensure that every student has a qualified, caring educator.
We believe that we must change the way educators are recruited, trained, evaluated, supported, and held accountable. We believe we must raise the bar for what it means to be a quality educator by focusing on preparing new educators for the classroom, attracting and retaining educators, providing continuous, high quality professional development for all educators, and promoting effective teachers and quality educators.
We believe that HSTA is one key to achieving these core areas of professional excellence. Through expanding your learning opportunities, you will ensure that all students in Hawaii’s public schools have the benefit of qualified, caring, committed educators throughout their school years.
The Benefits of HSTA Professional Development
One of the benefits to being an HSTA member is you can get your course deposit reimbursed on any PD course that you complete, excluding National Board courses. When you sign up for a course, you will be asked to pay a $150 deposit.
Once the course is over and your instructor provides the HSTA PD Department with proof of completion, i.e., your portfolio was completed and accepted for reclassification credit, your deposit will be returned to you in the form of a check. Please note, reimbursements can take up to four weeks to process after the close of a course. Make sure your current mailing address through HSTA Membership is up to date so your refund is not delayed.
HSTA PD Member Benefits
HSTA members have access to professional development courses across Hawaii. These opportunities include face-to-face, online and hybrid course offerings.
As a benefit of membership, HSTA course fees continue to remain extremely competitive.
HSTA’s professional development courses are a great way for educators to network with one another and share ideas.
