Hello BridgePrep Academy of InterAmerican parents, students, staff, and community members:

By way of introduction, my name is Guillermo M. Gonzalez and I am incredibly excited to be your new principal for the 2017-18 school year.
I was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States in 1980 via the Mariel Boat Lift. I grew up in Miami where I played high school baseball and then went on to continue my college and athletic career at Tallahassee Community College. After two years at Tallahassee Community College and earning my Associate’s Degree, I earned a full athletic scholarship to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in International Studies with a Minor in Sociology in Latin America.

I continued my academic career in Erie, PA, where I earned my Master’s of Science Degree in Bilingual Special Education from Mercyhurst College. While earning my Master’s Degree, I also played professional baseball for the North Atlantic Independent Professional Baseball League. Although baseball brought me great success and memories, I knew it was time to start teaching and working with the future. I haven’t looked back since. In 1998, I began my teaching career and continue to do so with the same eagerness and dedication to our children and their future today. After ten years in Miami-Dade Public Schools and earning my Education Specialist Degree in Education Leadership, I relocated to Chicago, Illinois where I served as an assistant principal for seven years for Chicago Public Schools. Last August, I decided to move back to Miami to be closer to family and pursue a position as principal.

Bringing me here, to BridgePrep Academy of InterAmerican where I will continue to be as eager and dedicated to the children and the bulldog community. At BridgePrep Academy of InterAmerican, I will strive to guide and coach our teachers to effectively instruct and guide our students towards their academic and personal goals, connect and communicate purposefully with our parents and community, and most importantly I will lead and influence our students to become positive and productive citizens of our worldly community.
I look forward to meeting and working with the great community of BridgePrep Academy of InterAmerican.

Professionally,
Guillermo M. Gonzalez
