What is ECET2?

ECET2 stands for Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers. It was born out of a desire to provide a forum for exceptional teachers to learn from one another and to celebrate the teaching profession. Inspired by the national convening and made possible by the generous support of various partners, Hawai'i is excited to again host this inspirational and dynamic weekend for teachers. This year we are excited to feature regional conferences to further strengthen collaboration, deepen community partnerships, and sustain the movement of empowering educators.

ECET2 Values

ECET2.HI focuses on creating an experience that reflects the below values:

Nurturing trust among teachers

Focusing on each teacher’s potential for growth

Inspiring both the intellect and the passion that drives teachers in their work

Providing time for collaboration and learning

Putting teachers in the lead

Recognizing teachers as talented professionals

Our ECET2 History

2016

In February 2016, a small group of teachers organized Oahu's first statewide ECET2 event that brought together 90 teachers from all islands. They were elevated by teacher keynote speakers, teacher-led breakout sessions, and colleague circles, and were celebrated with an evening event at the Governor's Mansion.

2017

In 2017, our ECET2 statewide convening grew to 100 teachers. At the end of the convening, the teachers were asked what they would "bring back" to their school communities. 5 groups of teachers (from Kauai, Molokai, Honolulu, West Hawaii, and Campbell Kapolei) decided then and there to bring the ECET2 movement back to their own communities.

2018

2018 saw 5 Hawai'i regional ECET2 events come to life. Over 350 total teachers attended the events on West Hawaii, Oahu, Molokai, and Kauai.
