Teaching Students Around the World
Dr. Annette Padilla ’13, PhD in Public Policy and Administration, is building bridges across languages and cultures around the world. Padilla is a professor and researcher whose educational résumé crisscrosses the globe from Maine to Vietnam to the United Arab Emirates. Before pursuing her PhD in Public Policy and Administration at Walden, a two-year contract at California Miramar University that allowed her to teach in Vietnam inspired her passion for international education and curriculum development. Since then, she’s also taught undergraduate business classes at Jiangnan University North American College in Wuxi, China. In 2020, she added to her global résumé, taking a position teaching English as a second language to female students with Saudi Arabia’s King Faisal University.
