Kelley Nelson

Vice Principal Message


Dear students, parents and guardians.

It gives me pleasure to take this opportunity to introduce myself, Ms. Kelley Nelson, to Global Bilingual Academy, in my new position as Assistant Principal of Academic Affairs.

Originally from the United States, I have lived in Kuwait for the last 4 years. Before coming to Kuwait I lived in many different cities in the United States as well as living internationally in Brazil and the Czech Republic. That being said, and am looking forward to a great year here at GBA.

My working experience has taken me down many interesting paths. I have many years of experience as a teacher, a coach, curriculum head of department, math trainer, vice principal, curriculum coordinator, STEM coordinator and curriculum writer. My academic trail has lead me to earn two master’s degrees; in Curriculum and Instruction and also in Administrative Leadership.

I’m excited about being at GBA and the opportunity to work with other professionals as well as a great group of students. I hope to inspire students and colleagues with my diverse background and love for education, and support them in a process of life-long learning and teaching where we can all strive to achieve more. I believe schools are more than an institution for education but also an important part of a community for students, parents, guardians and teachers to enjoy.

VP of Academic Affairs

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Pele
