Wolf of the Month-Luisa Xilot Gamboa

Luisa is a 13-year-old, 8th Grade Honor Roll student. Luisa names her 5th Grade Teacher, Mrs. Sue Heath, along with current teachers Mrs. Sherri Ramseier (Language), Mr. Daniel Weirich (Social Studies), Mrs. Cindy Soehner (Math), and Mrs. Kristi Minor (Science) as her favorites. Luisa’s favorite subject is Math. Some of Luisa’s hobbies and interests outside of school include basketball, volleyball, listening to music, playing videogames, doing puzzles, and hanging out with her dogs. Luisa names her mom (Carolina) and her grandma as her role model and states, “My mom always tells me to put all my effort into whatever I’m doing and try my best. My Grandma is my role model because she has a career as an accountant, which is what I would like to become.” When asked to discuss an accomplishment that she is proud of, Luisa responded, “America is not my home country, I am proud that I have learned how to speak and write English. I am also proud that I am getting better at sports and that I was selected as Wolf of the Month.” Luisa shared that a ‘Fun-Fact’ about herself is, “I like to shoot guns and make people that I know well laugh.” When asked to share her future aspirations, Luisa stated, “I hope to study and pursue a career as an accountant. I also would like to strive for constant personal and professional improvement.” Luisa’s advice to her fellow students is, “Pay attention in class and appreciate the opportunities you have to learn.” Mrs. Cindy Soehner states, “Luisa is such an amazing young woman! Her level of responsibility and maturity goes way beyond her years. Assignments are always very well-done, complete, on time, and done to the best of her ability. She helps wherever she can, and without being asked. I often find her in my room well before the bell, helping pass out papers. She is always willing to help a fellow student and is a very kind and humble person. Luisa always offers a happy greeting and I look forward to having her in class each day.” Mr. Johnson added, “Luisa is a quiet girl who might fly under the radar. Many in the community may not know much about her, but I will be the first to tell you she is one of Idalia’s finest. Luisa came to Idalia four years ago as a 5th Grader knowing very little English. Fast forward to today, and she is thriving as nearly a straight-A student on the Honor Roll. Beyond her impressive academic performance, Luisa is as sweet and polite of a student as you will ever find. Ask any of her teachers, and they will all speak to how much they enjoy having her in class, not only due to her academic performance, but more so for her outstanding effort and behavior. Luisa is just an overall nice, humble, and hardworking person who has an incredibly bright future and is well deserving of being named Student of the Month. Congratulations Luisa! Keep up the good work.” Submitted by Myles Johnson, Superintendent
