Biography

Joyce Lee Yang served as a teacher, assistant principal, principal and director for nearly 20 years in public schools across three states. She earned her doctorate from California State University, Fullerton where she conducted her dissertation research on female elementary school principals’ perceptions of work-life balance within their organizational and personal contexts. Yang has been a part of the Biola community since 2014 when she began teaching as an adjunct professor. She recently co-led a professional development for teachers in Cambodia and looks forward to continuing her service to students as a full-time faculty member in the School of Education while furthering her research in educational leadership and feedback-only assessment.
