03 Jul Frank Kim Elementary School counselor selected for national fellowship

The NEA Foundation named Monica Bryant, a counselor at Frank Kim Elementary School, as one of the 48 public school educators to become a member of this year’s class of Global Learning Fellows.

By participating in the fellowship, Bryant will be better equipped to prepare students for global citizenship. She will spend a year building global competency skills, the capacity to understand and act on issues of global significance.

This year’s class was selected from more than 400 applicants from across the country. Fellows teach all grade levels and all subjects. They come from rural, suburban and urban schools. Some fellows are National Board certified, curriculum coaches, foreign language speakers and more.

Over the course of a year, the NEA Foundation staff, partners and field experts will support Bryant as she immerses herself in online coursework, webinars and collegial study, including a two-day professional development workshop this fall in Washington, D.C., bringing the full cohort together with experts in global learning.
