Ms. Zuleima Barba Polo
My name is Zuleima Barba, and I am one of the very talented international teachers who has successfully joined the Aiken County School team and the Silver Bluff High School World languages department as a Spanish teacher.
I come from the beautiful country of Colombia, in South America. I have been in the educational field for almost twenty years and I have a long trajectory as a language teacher, curriculum developer and researcher in both schools and universities. I graduated as a language teacher and earned a Master's degree in Education with a concentration on educational policies and administration.
I am very passionate about what I do. I have lived and worked in different places around the globe. I love travelling to other countries and learning about the cultures and traditions of the places I visit. I also love learning languages and I strongly believe that learning a foreign language offers new possibilities to explore the world, to get in touch with new cultures, to encourage diversity and to promote tolerance.
I am excited about working with all of you this school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions or concerns. Your support and suggestions are always welcome and together we can work to have a successful school year.
