GlobaLinks Learning Abroad Recognizes Boteva, Kimball

GlobaLinks Learning Abroad, one of the largest and most prestigious study abroad organizations in the country, recently honored Orlina Boteva, study abroad adviser at the University of Maine, with an Innovation in Education Abroad Award. Boteva was given the award for her part in developing the Student Teaching Abroad program, which allows UMaine education majors to study abroad in the summer.

Pam Kimball, field experiences and certification program director at UMaine, was also recognized for helping Boteva create the internship program that lets students complete the first half of their student teaching in the United States and the second half in one of the GlobaLinks Learning Abroad locations.

“Through her ability to think outside the box, Boteva created a unique, integrated, international teaching experience available to all education majors at the University of Maine,” the GlobaLinks Learning Abroad announcement states.
