It hasn't been that long ago since the local Kauai Schools were a revolving door for mainland teachers. The idea of teaching in Hawaii sounded good but after a couple of years teachers found out that the cost of living was high, housing was out of their reach, and teaching on Kauai could be a challenge. 

The Rotary club of Hanalei Bay partnered with Growing Our Own Teachers and helped provide scholarships for local, home grown teacher candidates and gave them the boost they needed to complete their studies.

The result has been that 39 teacher candidates have been given scholarships and have become teachers in our school system. 

The need continues and your support is greatly appreciated
