Izael is kind and helpful to others, and he enjoys helping others succeed. One teacher said, “Izael is a prime example of what it means to be student of the month.
I appreciate his warm smile and his willingness to lend a hand. Izael always helps to put up the chairs at the end of the day, checks the Chromebooks to make sure they’re returned correctly and never fails to stay an extra minute to tidy up my classroom as the rest of the students head out upon hearing the dismissal bell.” Congratulations, Izael, for winning Student of the Month!
