About Victorene King, Ed.D.

Victorene is a graduate of University of Nevada Reno with a B.A. in Elementary Education. She earned her first M.A. in Educational Leadership from Northern Illinois University. She also earned a second M.A. for an Educational Specialist Superintendent certification through Western Illinois University, and then her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Western Illinois University. 

She brings a uniquely diverse perspective to education in that she has taught and led students and staff at the elementary, middle, high school, and central office levels in communities that represent every major part of the socio-economic spectrum.  

At the same time, Victorene grew up experiencing regular cycles of poverty as a “pastor’s kid” in a conservative Christian household. She uses and reflects upon those life-shaping experiences as she examines Individual and Fatalistic Ideologies and their harmful impact on the perceptions about the causes of poverty and the structural ignorance that is persistent in White Dominant cultures to further marginalize and oppress. Many of these findings are presented in her dissertation. They will also be discussed in future articles she is writing as she continues her research and work with districts as well.
