Indigenous Support Advocate
My name is Amanda Koivisto and I am the Indigenous Support Advocate for NER. I am a graduate of what once was Babbitt High School and continued to receive my AAS in Chemical Dependency from Mesabi College and my Bachelors in Social Work from UWS. I have been in this position for nine years, and I am absolutely convinced this is the BEST job and get to work with the best students, families and staff. I keep my days busy pushing into classrooms for academic help, open office hours, as well as using Check and connect, Dreamcatcher and the Academic Journey Program to help towards student success.
With any questions or concerns, please reach me at:
