Dr. Darlene

Wiggins Dockery


I'm a lifelong learner. The Latin phrase,"docemus discimus," ("By teaching, we learn") sums up my teaching philosophy.  It thrills me to support others in the achievement of their goals. For over 25 years, as an educational program manager,  gifted educator and researcher, piano teacher and TESOL professional, I have worked with learners of every developmental and life stage to further education equity and joie de vivre. I graduated from Duke University with a bachelor's degree in Public Policy Studies and from The College of William and Mary with a Ph. D. in Educational Policy Planning and Leadership with a Gifted Education specialty and a cognate in TESOL.
