Isabella Villa '12

Isabella's primary research interests include how Afro-Colombian Studies programs are implemented by teachers within the Bogotá public school system. She spent two quarters studying abroad (one in Chile and one in Columbia) and was able to spend an additional two weeks in Bogota during the summer of 2011 with Mellon funding to complete additional field work. She participated in the SROP program in the summer of 2010 and completed an independent internship in San Francisco with a legal clinic in the summer of 2012. Isabella taught English at a primary school in Barcelona for one year before joining Teach for America.
