Dr. Kathleen Wong, Ph.D. (2014)
- Toronto, Canada
- Ph.D in Leadership & Policy
- High School Vice Principal, Toronto Catholic District School Board
Upon realizing my calling to become an educator, I resigned from my job in the business world and obtained my bachelor of education degree from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto in Canada.
I have taught 18 different courses as a high school teacher prior to completing the Master of Science in Educational Administration and Supervision degree program at Niagara University.
Currently serving as a high school vice principal at the Toronto Catholic District School Board, I attribute my preparedness for the role to the stimulating learning opportunities and experiences I was exposed to at Niagara University. In fact, I enjoyed my experience at Niagara University so much that I went on to pursue my Ph.D. in Leadership and Policy at Niagara University as well.
Prior to becoming an educator, I have had three academic computer technology papers published and have also presented at several international and local conferences. As an academic in the field of education, I have an article based on my Ph.D. research published in an education journal and presented at international conferences.
The opportunity to contribute to the education field via research and publications is a direct result of my educational experiences at Niagara University. I feel empowered by the researching skills and knowledge gained through the Ph. D. program and plan to contribute further to the education community through continual action research and publications.
