The Best Teachers Lead with Aloha

Last week, I watched Education Week’s “A Seat at the Table”, moderated by Peter DeWitt.

One of his guests was Jan Iwase, retired educator and author of “Leading with Aloha: From the Pineapple Fields to the Principal’s Office”.

I was struck and inspired by Jan’s comments about “leading with Aloha”—and I learned that Aloha is so much more than hello or goodbye.

The “Spirit of Aloha” is so powerful that it was written into the laws of Hawaii.
