Educators don’t normally deceive their students, but every once in a while, they have a good reason to do so. That was the case at one local school when a staff member was the secret winner of an award often called “the Oscar of teaching.” A former teacher and current adminsitrator at Honolulu's Ala Wai Elementary School was the winner of a Milken Educator Award.
