In this episode I talk to Dr. Alex Teece about his journey that began with a Teach For America assignment in Ewa Beach and has culminated in the creation of DreamHouse 'Ewa Beach. Alex gives amazing insights into what is possible in education during COVID and beyond. His positive outlook and deep respect for indigenous Hawaiian culture gives us something our whole country can strive for during these challenging times.
