Hawaii Wants to Pay You $50,000 to Move to Paradise
For anyone who has ever sat on the beach during their last day of vacation and wondered why, oh why, can’t they live in paradise forever, we have just the dream opportunity for you! Pack your sunblock and sandals, book your plane ticket and wave goodbye to winter weather forevah because Hawaii is currently looking for teachers to move to the tropical paradise.
With an expected 1,600 spots needing teachers before the school year rolls around again this fall, Hawaii is facing a serious shortage. Surprisingly, one of the major issues they face is finding teachers from the mainland who will actually stay. “Hawaii has one of the highest teacher turnover rates in the nation, and this is more so for people that come from the mainland,” according to Corey Rosenlee, president of the Hawaii State Teachers Association, who spoke to Hawaii News Now. “They say, ‘I can’t live here,’ and they leave and we have to go back and recruit, and this cycle just continually happens.”
But that doesn’t mean that it’s not still a dream opportunity. Plenty of teachers have already jumped on the positions in paradise and are definitely making it work.
So if you’re into seashells and schoolrooms, lanais and lesson-plans, you can find out more at Hawaii’s State Department of Education and apply to one awesome, adventurous opportunity.
