COEHD alumna Kelsey Stoyanova to keynote UMaine Student Symposium

University of Maine College of Education and Human Development alumna and 2022 Maine Teacher of the Year Kelsey Stoyanova will give the keynote talk at the annual UMaine Student Symposium (UMSS), a celebration of student research and creative work, April 14 at the Collins Center for the Arts.

Stoyanova’s UMSS23 address will have two main themes: “Voice, choice and advocacy: What can YOU do to make a change utilizing the skills and passion you already have?” and “How can stakeholders utilize their expertise in their fields to help grow and shape the future leaders of Maine?”

Stoyanova is an 8th grade language arts teacher at Reeds Brook Middle School in Hampden. She earned her bachelor’s degree in secondary education in 2014 and a master’s in literacy education in 2018 from the College of Education and Human Development. She is also on track to earn her Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in educational leadership this spring.
