Carolyn Nuelle

UPDC Scholar

My name is Carolyn Nuelle, and this year I'll be a graduate student at the University of Minnesota;Twin Cities. Originally from Austin, Texas, I moved to Minnesota to study at St. Olaf College, where I received my Bachelor's degree in 2018. Since then, I have enjoyed working with high school students in France as an English teaching assistant, and here in St. Paul as a college access coach. I will be pursuing a Master of Education in Second Language Teaching for French and ESL, and I look forward to becoming a teacher here in the Twin Cities. Thank you to the Union Park District Council for helping make this a possibility!
