Join the Student International Business Council (SIBC) for lunch on March 16 as we welcome Gabe Nakashima '09 BBA, a former SIBC member and founder of Charter Substitute Teacher Network (CSTN). SIBC project group members will also have the opportunity to ask questions about CSTN and solicit feedback on the status of our spring marketing project. 

Nakashima is among the 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 in Education. Recognized for his leadership and innovation, Nakashima created a network that effectively vets high quality substitute teachers by using rigorous sourcing and matching analytics. Currently a 320-employee operation, CSTN is in schools across Chicago, Denver and other locations.

“This award is humbling and exciting,” Nakashima says. “It has already begun to open doors that will enable me to contribute on a greater scale. I plan to take full advantage of these opportunities that will enable me to lead and contribute to our future generations at the highest level.”

A graduate of the College of Education (COE) Institute for Teacher Education, Nakashima earned his master of education degree in teaching (MEdT). After teaching at Kamaile Academy in Wai‘anae, Nakashima focused his research on the increasingly alarming amount of time students spend with substitutes, particularly in high-needs communities. By the time these students reach 12th grade, he determined, they will have spent up to one year with substitute teachers--often a year of ineffective learning time because of a lack of continuity and appropriate placement.

Dividing his time between Chicago and Denver, Nakashima says he has aspirations to return to Hawai‘i to help build education programs along the Wai‘anae Coast.
