In this role, she supports the planning and implementation of international field experiences, online learning programs, and alumni small grant opportunities for K–12 educators from across the U.S. Though this work, Kelsey is committed to increasing understanding of global competence in U.S. educators and their students.
Prior to joining IREX, Kelsey served as a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Armenia. She taught English to grades 3–12 and conducted pedagogical trainings for local English teachers. In partnership with the Children of Armenia Fund, Kelsey also contributed to the U.S. Embassy’s English Access Microscholarship Program, providing teenagers from economically disadvantaged communities with high-quality, immersive English-language instruction.
