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 second 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.
At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
