Instructor Biography

My name is Sandra Serna and I am so excited to be a part of the Inspire team! I am a teacher by profession but began homeschooling when my oldest son started Kindergarten - six years ago. My husband, Adrian, and I, have three fun-loving, energetic, loud and funny boys (Adrian, Isaac & Caleb). What a fun ride! My first passion is teaching. After that I enjoy singing, reading, sewing, and crafting-- but really, who has time for all that??! So now I mostly love locking myself in the bathroom for a few moments of quiet. 🙂

I look forward to working with your children.
