NAPE members include state agencies, affiliate organizations, and individual professionals who share a belief that every student can achieve their dreams. NAPE provides a community of support, helping educators improve educational systems to make this happen.
As an equity practitioner, my NAPE membership is key to being connected to the latest state and local educational equity practices. I share NAPE’s resources with Hawaii’s educational community to encourage dialogue, collaboration, and collective innovation.
Joining NAPE as a state member is sure way of gaining access to a treasure trove of resources that aren't readily available from any other organization or association. NAPE consultants provide expert advice and are readily available to assist administrators.
Being part of NAPE has made me better at teaching because now I have the capability of reaching out to underrepresented students in a way that encourages them and helps them to feel empowered. My circle of colleagues has also grown because of my participation in NAPE.
