Ms. Jeimmy Güiza A.

¡Hola! My name is Jeimmy Güiza Ardila. I am one of the IB - MYP Spanish teachers for 9th grade. This is my third year at SSS. 

I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I received a B.A. in Philology and Languages with an emphasis on English from The National University, one of the most important public universities in my country. I am also certified with IELTS level C1.

I have been teaching in middle and high school for fifteen years. I have taught literature, English as a second language and trained students for the TOEFL, IELTS, FCE, PET and KET tests.

I am part of a program called Participate Learning, which connects foreign teachers to different schools in the U.S. and gives students the chance to experience a variety of teaching environments.

I love to read books and I have a passion for cooking since it allows me to learn from other cultures. Apart from that, I like traveling, listening to music and going to the beach. My favorite city in Colombia is Cartagena. When I retire, I want to live there.

It is my desire to be an ambassador by bringing, not only my culture but also, the outside world into the four walls of my classroom.  I want to provide an invaluable cultural exchange perspective for my students to foster their critical thinking, inquiry and reflection. Hence, students will be engaged in significant, meaningful learning.
