The state Department of Land and Natural Resources will offer a new program for pre-service and in-service teachers on Maui in June.

The teacher institute program, run by the department’s Division of Forestry and Wildlife, is intended for teachers and educators of grades K through 6.

“The DOFAW Teacher’s Institutes will supply teachers with the tools and connections they need to develop successful experiential education units that tie together, science, culture, and standards-based learning,” said DLNR Chairperson William J. Aila, Jr.

The Maui teacher institute session runs from June 21 to 24 and costs $75.  Space is limited to 15 people.  There is also a session planned on Oahu from June 5-8.
