Nasly Rengifo Zuñiga, Licenciada en Lenguas Modernas - 2ºnaslyrengifo@cca.edu.co
My name is Mrs Nasly Rengifo Zuñiga This is my fourth year teaching at Campestre Americano School, I was born in El Bordo Cauca in 1987, and moved to Popayán when I was in the third grade. I have lived most of my life in Popayán, Cauca, known to most people as the white city. After graduating from high school at the age of sixteen, I decided to study Modern Languages (English and French) I spent 5 years in The University of Cauca, learning English and French at the same time. I really enjoyed studying these languages. I graduated in 2009 after completing 10 semesters there. During my career I started to teach English from fourth semester, my first experience was with Unilingua Courses as main teacher. After graduating, I continued working with English courses in Unilingua where I have had a long experience as English teacher with students of different ages and levels. At that time I had a short English experience in an institution called “Instituto Colombiano de Educación Bilingue” where I worked with students of different technological programs; it was really interesting because my classes were contextualized to their careers. In 2010, I began to work with “Campestre Americano School” as classroom teacher in second grade. It has been a big challenge but it has also been my greatest experience as teacher, I considered this place my school too. Because I have learned meaningful things as teacher, as person and as mom of a beautiful girl, “Gabriela” my daughter is 3 now and I enjoy sharing time with her and my husband. I am fortunate for having my wonderful daughter. She is my inspiration every day. I have taught at this school for almost four years. I am glad to have the opportunity to teach 2nd grade, applying new methodologies to make my experience more meaningful. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful project in CCA, I love teaching and I especially love teaching the children at our school.

My name is Claudia Patricia Flor Chamorro. I was born in Popayán. I am part of a very beautiful family. I have two brothers and two sisters. My dad passed away when I was ten and my dear mom went to meet Jesus almost three years ago. I have a wonderful son named Juan Andrés; he’s ten.
My life at school was great. After graduating at Bachillerato Femenino San Agustin, I studied Modern Languages (English – French) at Universidad del Cauca.
My first teaching experience was the pedagogical practice. It was carried out with fourth and fifth graders at Escuela Pubenza. I started working after graduating in 1998. The Meyer Institute was my first “Teaching School”. Aspiring teachers there, received a very conscious training to become part of the staff. There, I had the opportunity to work with their regular courses which ran by levels, and with all the school and companies that had teaching arrangements with them.
I started working at Campestre Americano School in 2002. This school has been my second home. All the years that I have worked here have made me grow as a teacher and as a person. CCA has given me the chance to meet new methodologies and tools to teach. Working here has been a very valuable teaching – learning experience. I am blessed for being part of this Eagles’ Family. I love teaching here and I love my kids!
