Alicia “Allie” Wong is extremely passionate about High Tech High’s mission and philosophy, mainly because as a graduate of High Tech High International herself, she has seen firsthand the benefits of student-centered, project-based learning. After completing her bachelor’s studies at Soka University of America, she went on to obtain her Master’s degree in teacher education and teaching credential from the University of Pennsylvania. Knowing that she wanted to go back to her HTH roots, Allie taught at High Tech Middle from 2012-2016 and then attended the High Tech High Graduate School of Education for her second master’s degree in Educational Leadership. She then became the Dean of Students at High Tech Elementary, and has been continuing her learning journey with all of the students, families and staff there for the last four years. Outside of school, Allie’s interests include soccer, musical theatre, reading, and traveling.
