Aloha mai kākou,
I hope that for all of you closing out your school year that things are going smoothly and that you will soon be able to take a well-deserved Summer Break.
Hoʻomaikaʻi (Congratulations) to our newly elected ATE Board of Directors members:
Second Vice President, Jennifer Young Wallace
College / University Representative,Thomas Conway
Thank you as well to those who chose to submit their names for consideration. Your willingness to serve ATE is both commendable and appreciated.
ATE’s 2023 Summer Conference in Washington, DC (July 28-August 1) is right around the corner. If you have not signed up yet, please do - and bring a friend! The Presidential Theme: A Professional Educator's Kuleana - Preparing for the Future through Accountability, Diversity, Advocacy, and Celebration will be examined through a variety of lenses and the conference itself will be, we think, something that will strongly resonate with our members. Submit your proposal here by May 31, 2023.
Inquiry Initiative 2 (II2) is also gearing up to look at the topic of “Teacher Retention.” As you may have seen and heard in the closing session in Jacksonville, some things will be a little different this year and II2 will be one of those things. Please join us for this exciting and timely topic and choose your inquiry into teacher retention. Learn more about II2 at these links:
● Flyer of II2, including a timeline from DC (2023) to New Orleans (2025)

Please note that LFTE (Leadership Foundation for Teacher Education) is seeking and accepting applications for the Robert J. Stevenson Scholarship for graduate students and the Ann Gayles-Felton Scholarship for undergraduates in secondary education. Information about these scholarship opportunities can be found on ATE’s website by taking this link – Scholarships Link.
A Hui Hou.
Jon Yoshioka, ATE President (2023-24)
