I am happy to announce that Anna Koval is joining the Wikipedia Education
Along with Tighe and Floor, Anna will be our third Global Education
Program Manager and will work with our team to support education
initiatives around the world. Anna's Serbian background will be helpful
to our team's efforts to support education program leaders in Eastern
Europe. She will also serve as our point person for outreach to Asian
countries and secondary schools. She and Sage will work closely on Global
Education technical support needs.
For the past 8 months, Anna has worked at the Wikimedia Foundation as a
Community Advocate, supporting several teams, including mine, as well as:
* Siko Bouterse and the Grantmaking team on IEGs and gender gap work
* Yana Welinder and the Legal team on the new Trademark policy
* James Forrester and the Product team on the VisualEditor roll out
and, of course,
* Philippe Beaudette and the Community Advocacy team on a number of
workflows, not the least of which is the wikis' emergency response
Anna's transition from her Community Advocacy position and activities
will be completed soon.
Anna is an award-winning educator, with a master's degree in education
and more than a decade of classroom teaching experience, ranging from
middle school through graduate school. She was a Walt Disney Teacher of
Year nominee, an American Library Association
Emerging Leader, and was
featured on the cover of *California Teacher
When Anna's not at work, she enjoys gardening at her home in Sonoma and
spending time her husband and two dogs. She's also a mighty fine home
Please join me in (re-)welcoming Anna Koval!
