As the Program Administrator for English Learners in a high school district located in the Bay Area, Welton Kwong oversees a program that serves approximately 1100 students. He recognizes that a key component of his work in helping students learn more effectively is to create an organizational environment in which adults also engage in robust learning. Prior to becoming an administrator, Welton taught high school for nine years. He was honored in 2007-2008 as Teacher of the Year in his district. Currently, Welton is also a doctoral student in the AEGIS program at Teachers College, Columbia University. A primary research interest is on the learning process of teacher leaders in K-12 schools. In addition, he hopes to bring research on adult learning to sports by studying how both athletes and fans making meaning of their experiences. Welton studied literature in a number of languages at the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University with additional degrees in Education and Educational Leadership from Stanford University and Teachers College, Columbia University respectively. Since completing the Summer Principals Academy (SPA) program at Teachers College in 2008, he has been returning every summer as an instructor to aspiring school leaders.
