work in hawaii

By Caroline Rolf | The Plaid Zebra

It’s easy to tell why Hawaii is considered one of America’s happiest states. It boasts sun, sand and surfing. Recently however, a fierce competition has broke out across the islands. Competition, that is, for teachers. There is a huge job opportunity in Hawaii right now as the demand increases for dedicated educators.

The Hawaii Department of Education anticipates having nearly 1,600 vacant spots to fill come fall because of the improving economy and an increasing number of Baby Boomers due to retire. What does this mean for millennials searching in the sparse market for work? If you meet the level of education and experience they’re looking for, you could be paid up to $63,665, according to the Teacher’s Salary Schedule. There is even the possibility of a $3,000 annual bonus for those working in certain rural areas.

Former reports by the National Center for Education Statistics have shown that 40 to 50 per cent of teachers in America left after the first five years. Although that number continues to decline, Hawaii still has one of the highest teacher turnover rates in the nation. “They say, I can’t live here,” explains president of the Hawaii State Teachers Association, “and they leave and we have to go back and recruit, and this cycle just continually happens.”

The Department of Education is looking to fill positions in the secondary mathematics and science department as well as in special education. Officials have reached out to Mainland cities like Dallas, Chicago, New York, Portland, Newark and Los Angeles in need of teachers willing to relocate to the rural areas of the island and Oahu’s Leeward Coast.
