National Faculty member Allie Wong is extremely passionate about Project Based Learning, mainly because as a graduate from a PBL high school herself, she has seen firsthand the benefits of student-centered, authentic learning.
For the last 10 years, Allie has worked at a PBL charter school network in San Diego, California, as a teacher and school principal. In this time, she has coached teachers on how to differentiate instruction, create engaging multidisciplinary projects, and develop structures that promote equity and learning.
She also created a math curriculum for elementary and middle school grades based on constructivist theories and incorporating math into projects. Allie also developed a successful approach to collaborative design that lifts student voices in the project design process.
Allie holds her B.S. in Liberal Arts from Soka University of America, M.S. from the University of Pennsylvania in Teaching and Curriculum, and M.A. from the High Tech High Graduate School of Education in Educational Leadership.
