Aloha National Board Certified Teachers –

Congratulations on obtaining your National Board Certification or renewing your National Board Certification.  We are so proud of the hard work that you have put into achieving this recognition, especially as each of you were given unexpected situations due to the current pandemic.  I am reaching out again to ask that you hold the date for our first Virtual National Board Certification Celebration.  We are excited at the opportunity to celebrate and recognize all of our teachers together and all on the same day, April 19th at 5 pm

As mentioned this year’s celebration will be virtual.  To help us prepare, we need all newly certified and those that renewed this year to send us the following information no later than April 12, 2021.

Presentation of Certificates Slideshow:

We need a photo of you. ( This photo can be in your classroom, at your school, with your family, enjoying your favorite past time, etc. Make it a picture that represents you!)

We also need a paragraph about you to use with the photo. (What are you accomplishments, your experience, and/or you passions as it pertains to teaching.) Please keep this information to one paragraph.

Video Opportunity:

We are going to put together a video to show during the ceremony.  We would like submissions of short videos that express what the certificate means to you or how the work will impact your teaching.

Video Requirements:  1-2 minutes long, recorded from phone or webcam.  If you choose to do the video please record it with your phone horizontal not vertical

If we receive more than 5-6 videos, they may be compiled in a marketing video to inspire other teachers.

To submit the picture/paragraph and/or video please send to Diane Gibson at dgibson@hsta.org

You might be wondering how you and your family will be able to “attend” this virtual event.  We want you to be celebrated by everyone who has supported you in this effort, so we will live stream the celebration on the Hawaii State Teachers Association Facebook Page and YouTube channel.  This will allow access to the celebration regardless of where you or your support team are located.  All of our livestreams are saved, so should someone miss the celebration, they can view it at a later date.

Please send your information soon! We want each of you included in the celebration.  We are so proud of the work you have accomplished and we look forward to celebrating with you in April!
