As Wikipedia Student Program Manager, Helaine develops relationships with instructors to deepen our support for program activities. Helaine is responsible for mentoring the instructors who teach Wikipedia classroom assignments. She ensures that instructors are well-supported throughout their Wikipedia assignment and helps them navigate Wiki Education’s robust set of resources. Helaine has a Ph.D. in history and brings extensive experience in higher education and academia to Wiki Education.
She has a passion for languages and is an avid (and experimental) chef, with “strong” feelings about food — though her daughters, Nina and Maxine, don’t give her much time for either.
