Sra. Guzman, Principal/Directora

I was born and raised in Isabela, Puerto Rico. I was raised by my grandmother, a strong woman who taught me to work hard and never give up. My family is big, funny, caring, loving, and like my titi would say "Tropical". I love my family! I have three sisters and two brothers. My youngest brother is 23 months old and lives in Puerto Rico. My family in Minnesota consist of great friends and loving mentors. I recently got marry and I enjoy spending time with her and my loyal Maya (dog).  As a Puerto Rican born and raised leader, I am proud to be a role model for all children in Minneapolis Public Schools. 

South Minneapolis has been my second home for the last 18 years. In the past 16 years, I have had the honor to devote my life and passion to the ongoing efforts of improving education for all children in Minneapolis Public Schools. Some of my work includes active participation on bilingual-district and building steering committees, implementing new Spanish curriculum in bilingual settings, engaging families in our education system, mentoring colleague teachers, advocating for all children and living my believe that every child deserves a high-quality education delivered by high-quality and effective teachers, regardless of race, economic status, disabilities and other circumstances.
