“This was the best Institute or conference that I have ever attended! I am newly inspired! I will start the school year with many ideas that I am excited to share and try. I also feel I can be clearer in promoting service-learning in my school.” — Terry Yamamoto-Edwards, Science Teacher, Assistant Director, Luke Center for Public Service Punahou School, Honolulu, Hawaii
