Hawaii Hiring 1,600 Teachers Willing to Relocate!

By: Linda Lee

Hawaii is currently experiencing a teacher shortage, and the state has 1,600 vacancies to fill before the school year starts again in the fall. The main challenge is finding employees who will actually stay in Hawaii.

Hawaii has one of the highest teacher turnover rates in the nation and this is more so for people who come from the mainland. They say they can’t live there and they leave, and then Hawaii has to go back and recruit once again. So this cycle just continually happens.

In addition to the average teacher salary of $56,000, the state is offering a $6,000 bonus to teachers hired in “special education, secondary mathematics and secondary science.”

If interested in applying for a position, head to the DoED website for information.
