Intern Spotlight
Grace Green
Iskashitaa would like to welcome Grace Green to the Iskahshitaa Team. Grace was picked to pursue the Paul Lindsay Internship through the College of Education this Fall 2012. She will be working directly in our ESL program supervising the Honor's Civic Engagement Teams while developing instructional material to engage and empower refugees.

Grace received her Bachelor of Science degree in Public Affairs from Indiana University Bloomington in 2011.  As an undergraduate she volunteered as an English as a Second Language (ESL) tutor in public schools, in addition to interning for political campaigns, a congressional district office, and state environmental protection agency.  After graduating, Grace worked for Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska, where she conducted environmental education, and as an ESL Instructional Assistant at a junior-senior high school.  Grace is currently a graduate student in the University of Arizona's Teach Arizona Master of Education program, and an intern at Doolen Middle School.  She is excited to build relationships within Iskashitaa and serve the Tucson refugee community.
