My name is Xiomara Serbones; I can’t wait to meet each and everyone. My goal is to motivate children in ascertaining their inner strengths and abilities to discover what truly inspires them. I am to provide a stimulating learning environment that encourages children to trust their own opinions, while fostering confidence to accomplish their fullest potential.
