New group from World Teach arrives


A new group of educators from the World Teach Organization arrived last night and are now undergoing a two week orientation before the start of the new school year.

Deputy Director of Education Faaui Vaitautolu says there are 21 in the group and they come from all over the United States.

This is the 7th year that DOE has contracted with World Teach to supply teachers for local elementary and high schools.

Several will be teaching in Manu’a.

Upon their arrival at the airport last night, some of the group shared their excitement about being here with our Sa Viena.
