UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
Department of Educational Psychology
A professor in the department of educational psychology, Lois Yamauchi believes that “all students can learn; it is my job to figure out how to engage them so they will be successful.”
She strives to be a teacher who has high expectations of all students while remaining sensitive to individual needs.
When asked to reflect on Yamauchi’s influence, a student said, “her ability to tap into each student’s interests, together with her enthusiasm for educating, inspire a sense of empowerment and a passion for learning.”
