Dr. Yoko Mogi-Hein, a native of Tokyo, Japan, is a Senior SOTL Scholar and historian of education.

She received her undergraduate degree in art and music from Southeast Missouri State University (1986) where she was an active member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority and lettered four years in varsity tennis.

After managing university relations at an international education consulting firm in New York for three years, she received a corporate scholarship to complete Masters of Arts (MA) degree in Education from New York University (1991), and Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in History of Education and Transcultural Studies from Columbia University’s Teachers College in the City of New York (1999).

Yoko brings to the University twenty-five years of professional experience in education management and teacher training. Her other post secondary teaching experiences include undergraduate courses in early childhood pedagogy, ESL/foreign language methods as well as graduate courses in research method and affirmative action at the College of Education, City College of New York in the City University of New York (CCNY); Silver Lake College; and St. Norbert College.  In addition, Yoko taught music and movement to preschool and daycare children at St. Norbert’s Children’s Center for three years and has taught Japanese language and culture to high school students in the Upward Bound Pre-College Summer Program.

She began her education management career in 1987 at a private educational consulting business in New York City for which she directed international education seminars and managed the college relations program at over 300 colleges and universities.

Through this professional experience – both inside and outside of academe and partnerships with school districts in New York, Wisconsin, and Tokyo, Japan – she developed her expertise in bringing education stakeholders together to address challenges facing PK-12 schools and higher education institutions today.
