Chiu-Yin (Cathy) Wong, Ph.D.

Prior to earning her doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Second Language Education from Texas Tech University, Dr. Wong had taught in Hong Kong, Korea, Hawaii, and Texas. Her enthusiasm and passion in teaching make her courses enjoyable to students. Dr. Wong’s students often comment that she is a talented instructor and that her courses are well organized and rich with content and learning opportunities.

Currently, Dr. Wong’s research focuses on teachers’ use of strategies to create a translanguaging space for emergent bilingual/multilingual students.
