Isolated Student
There is a student in my internship that refuses to work in a group, and always begs for her desk to be separated from her group so she can sit alone. She tells myself and my CT that she does not like other kids her age and doesn't have any interest in making friends. What can or should be done for this student?

Possibly try getting close to her yourself, there's an obvious trust issue she has with her peers they could've done something behind her back that you don't know of or it could be other personal reasons. Building up trust between the two of you could have her open up and you can sit her next to another trusted student (probably the nicest one you have) and see if maybe just one partner can be enough for her to handle. If this doesn't work maybe try telling her the benefits of learning teamwork or call a parent to explain the situation.

It seems like she is having a hard time with trust. There could be more problems going on at home and in her personal life that she is having trouble with and doesn't want to get made fun of, so its easier for her to just be alone. I would try to gain her trust slowly. You could work with her one and one and give her time to just talk things out if she opens up to you eventually. Find her interests and then see if another student shares those same interests and see if she will get along with them.
