Hey! I'm Gisselle Lizama and I was born in the city of Santa Ana, California on February 25, 2003. I'm currently 13 years old and in the 8th grade. My family is something that I'm lucky to have because my mom, dad, and last but not least my older brother Reggie, have been there for me since the start. I typically go to my dad if I have any life problems because he gives me great advice on what to do which I appreciate so much. I'm quite weird but hey, that makes me special. I actually have a few nicknames that certain people gave to me which, let me tell you that I LOVE. Some things that I absolutely love doing are laughing, making memories, and having a great time with my friends. I consider myself a coaster junkie because I love all sorts of roller coasters. So far I've visited Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Someday I hope I can go to the Cedar Point which is located in Sandusky, Ohio. The reason why I want to go there is because it has a lot of world breaking roller coasters which is SUPER exciting. If I could, I would actually listen to music all day. I love listening to pop, cumbias, and bachata. I've been asking and asking my dad to take me to a "Los Angeles Azules" concert for quite a while so I hope that I go to one of them too.

I have currently been trying to work hard to get my grades up as I was struggling in the beginning of the school year. I have been following my short term goal of going to tutoring more often to get help and receive better test grades in the past 3 months. Following the topic, I've also been going to practice violin afterschool in order to learn and achieve new techniques. As time passes by, I now realize that I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
PLG Check-in and MAP data Report - February 2017
- In achieving my goals, I've noticed that I've improved in lots of classes an I have been getting tutoring for math to help me for meth tests. I can improve with interacting with my teachers more to see what I can do to get my grades up. I have gotten into the Renaissance which is a really good thing and I hope I make it for the 2nd one too. My view points did pretty much change a bit because on one end, I got used to working hard for my grades and/or keeping them at a certain grade without letting them decrease. I went up on my Map test scores. Honestly, for me, ELA map tests are always harder than math test scores. I went up by 9 points on the 2nd Map test and I hope that I can keep improving because it shows everyone how much I've learnt. I need to work on my context clues but one way I can achieve that is by practicing by WPW note cards at home. I feel really proud of myself for going up in my ELA Map test score because I couldn't believe that in such little time, I can go up so high. I hope to achieve at least 233 for the next ELA Map test because I believe that I can do it.
