Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Deyanira Chica
Welcome! I am the Spanish teacher for the Dual Language Program in 1st grade. I am from Cali, Colombia. I have two Bachelor’s Degree: Foreign Languages, English and French and I am a Lawyer (Human Rights) from Universidad Santiago de Cali. I saw in the university the possibility to look at the world from different ways of thinking that define and dignify it. I am a professional in constant training, aware of the pedagogical practice and the humanistic vocation served to trace dreams and feed the hopes of children and young people. This is my first year at Polenta and my 11th year teaching. My first year teaching was in Elementary School, and I taught English and French as a second language. Then, I went to a Military School, where I taught Elementary, Middle and High school. In my last four years, I worked with the Colombia Government as a pedagogical advisor.
From now on, the school will always be a place with open doors, to receive your queries and to consider your proposals, convinced that dialogue is the best tool to build and entwine ourselves as people. Here, is a woman, a human, a professional, proud of what I have been doing for years: helping to draw smiles and sow seeds in children and young people who begin to transform the world. And doing it today, in this beautiful place, is a dream that I have also fulfilled.
