Ms. Jeimmy Güiza-Ardila.
¡Hola! My name is Jeimmy Güiza Ardila. I am one of the IB - MYP Spanish teachers for 9th grade and ab Initio years 1 & 2 for Juniors & Seniors. This is my fourth 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, watch kdramas, spend time with my family, learn about God and talk to Him. 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 the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
