Please help us recognize Colleen Spring who is the State History Teacher of the Year!  The article by the Hawaii Council of Hunmanities (click on picture to go to article on HIDOE website) sums up everything we know about Colleen and her passion for history, and her dedication for our students to succeed in the State and national History Day competitions.  Ms. Spring makes history relevant and important for our students to know and appreciate.  Ms. Spring's personal and professional relationships with her families, teacher peers at Kahuku High and Intermediate, and professors at Brigham Young University Hawai`i promote a continuum of learning for our students. 

La`ie Elementary will be named as a Gilder Lehrman Affiliate School, and our library will receive resources from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and HISTORY. 

Congratulations Colleen and we wish you luck in the pursuit of the National History Teacher of the Year--thank you for representing La`ie Elementary!
