S1:OTR3 The Dreams of Alex Teece

Alex Teece and his team worked for three years to turn DreamHouse Academy (located in West Oahu) from an idea into a reality. Listen as Alex and I explore how he and his partners designed and developed a public charter school focused on the fusion of identity, leadership, place, culture and student agency. The Hawaiʻi Public Charter School Commission rejected Alex’s first application. Undaunted, the DreamHouse team went back to the drawing board, revamped their academic and financial plans and built community support. Today, 100 students are six weeks into the first year of this innovative, imaginative, creative school.  Alex brings educational leadership, finance, fundraising, and teaching experience to DreamHouse, and is currently a full-time doctoral student at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.  He enjoys spending time outdoors with his black lab puppy and traveling with his wife to experience new foods, cultures, and places.

  1. So incredibly proud of Alex and thrilled to the moon and back that DreamHouse is going strong with 100 lucky keiki!! I know he and his team are doing and will continue to do amazing things for education in Hawaii. Hawaii is so lucky to have such a brave, determined and committed (and highly “degreed”!) person such as Alex. Here’s to the c/o 2026! Huge aloha to you both, Josh and Alex ❤️
