Whiz Kid's Key to Awesomeness: Known as "Bella" to the students in B.L.O.C.K.S.
When she arrives for class, the children all announce her arrival to the teacher and "Bella's here" echoes across the classroom. They have invented a "B is for Bella" song, which they sing when she arrives.
She has demonstrated an outstanding ability to work with three and four year olds with enthusiasm, patience and energy. She has wisdom and maturity beyond her years and has become a trusted and valued teacher assistant in the children's classroom.
With maturity beyond her years, Isabela is a student-athlete with a tremednous work ethic. Her enthusiasm is infectious. She makes others around her better players. As a four-year starter on the varsity soccer team she earned Bay State League first team in her junior and senior seasons.
With a passion to succeed and skills to score goals, Isabela was regarded as one of the most dangerous goal scorers in the highly-competitive Bay State league.
Extending outside the soccer field, Isabela is a person of great character and sportsmanship.
