Student-Athlete Profile

Isabel’s teacher speaks of how well rounded she is in both swimming and her academics: “I have had the pleasure of teaching Isabel as both a freshman and as a junior, and she has been nothing less than an outstanding student. This year, as a junior, I have Isabel for both AP Language and Composition and AP Seminar. Isabel naturally excels in English, but I have seen her struggle, and overcome many obstacles in AP Seminar. She went from being terrified of writing a research paper and presenting in front of her peers to becoming one of the best presenters in class. Isabel is the first student to cheer on her peers, to challenge their thought processes in order to help them better in their academics and performances, and is always offering to help those around her. She has become a leader in the classroom and plays a vital role in the class’ success. Isabel does well at including students who may not easily fit in with others, or who could be a challenge to work with. I have also seen Isabel compete in swim over the last three years where she has assumed a leadership role as co-captain. Isabel holds herself with confidence, grace, and poise. Her teammates look up to her as a role model, and just like in the classroom, she encourages her teammates and helps them strive to do their best.”
