About Ugena Whitlock

We are our stories. I write to make sense of the world through mine. I hope you will visit for awhile.

Welcome to my blog & website! Like me, it’s a work in progress!

I have been blogging for for over ten years. From 2018-2020, I was took a semi-break from blogging while I worked on my Master of Divinity (MDiv), and I look forward to picking it back up in all my free time…

I am chair of the Department of Educational Leadership in the Bagwell College of Education at Kennesaw State University. I am also Professor of Curriculum & Instruction. I enjoy my work at the University because it allows me to work with some talented colleagues and be part of student-centered teacher and leader preparation programs. As a chair, I get to serve as a resource to faculty so that they can pursue their scholarly work in a positive work environment.

One day, I will return to faculty to teach and write in conventional academic style. But for now, these small glimpses of the world around me–and my life in the world–make up the kind of writing I enjoy.

I live in Marietta, Georgia, with Sarah, our dogs Duncan and Caroline, and two cats Spike and Trevor. A native of North Alabama, I hold a B.S.Ed. in English and History from Athens State University, a M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction from Coppin State University, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction with a specialization in Curriculum Theory and Women’s & Gender Studies from Louisiana State University. I have a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University.
