It is best to work as a teacher in Hawaii Public Schools if one is from the island or single with no dependents. If not from the island, then having a network of support is crucial. The salaries are so low that a single person with a child or children cannot provide for him or herself and child(ren). The network of support will allow you to do what you love as a teacher and earn a salary not commensurate with the cost of living on Hawaiʻi Island.
