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 an 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 significative meaningful learning.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
