http://mariafourthhour.blogspot.com/2007/12/isabelizzie-cortez.htmlHola! My name is Isabel Cortez, and my friends call me Izzie. I attend Maui High School in Honolulu Hawaii. I a 16 and a sophomore at Maui High. I moved to Honolulu when I was eight years old, because my dad got a job here. I used to live in Gila, New Mexico. I love it here in Hawaii because it is always warm and it is beautiful. In my family there is 7 children. It sometimes gets crazy, but I love it. I have a twin brother and sister who are 18, an older brother who is 22, a younger brother who is 13, and two younger sisters one 12 and one 8. I play on the soccer and tennis team here in Hawaii. I am on Varsity tennis, but JV soccer. Almost all of my friends play the same sport as me. My dad is a realtor and my mom is a teacher. My mom teaches at Hillside Elementary School. I got a job this past summer at a store called Sweet Tooth. It is a candy and ice cream shop. I work 2-3 times a week and I really like it. During tennis and soccer season, I don't work. My favorite classes are gym and history. I hope to be a history teacher or athletic trainer when I am older. I havn't started really looking at college, but I think the University of Denver looks like a place for me. My oldest brother attends The University of Madison and is graduating this winter. He is becoming a marine biologist. My twin brother is going to The University of San Diego and my sister is going to The University of Texas. I love to hang out with my friends and stay active.
