High School Spanish Teacher Alba Nelly Korman Named NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellow

Nelly Korman St. Louis Park High School Spanish Teacher Alba Nelly Korman has been named a 2019 Global Learning Fellow by the NEA Foundation.

Each year, the NEA Foundation chooses one educator from each state to participate in this 12-month professional development program that includes a two-day workshop in Washington, DC, online coursework, webinars by leading experts, peer learning, and a nine-day international field study experience in South Africa next summer.

“I am honored to have been selected as a NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellow, and I am excited to have this opportunity to work with a group of amazing educators and education experts from around the country,” Korman said. “I am looking forward to developing the skills and experience to actively use and apply global learning education in my classroom and in my community, and share it with my students and other teachers around the world. I am ready to help my students become global citizens!”

This is Korman’s third year working at St. Louis Park High School where she currently teaches Spanish III, Spanish VII, and Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture.
