Xiomara, or Xio to the children, has been with Growing Light Montessori School for many years and comes to us from the Kensington Campus. Xio grew up in the Bay Area in a Mexican American household. Xio is very passionate about Maria Montessori’s philosophy and work as she grew up attending Montessori schools. Xio completed her Montessori teacher certification at MTEC (Montessori Teacher Education Center) in all subject areas and loves being a Head Teacher. Xio enjoys teaching Spanish, Art, and Science to her students as well as sharing her love for meditation and yoga. Fun facts about Xio include that she used to train in the martial art of Kung Fu as well as teach it, and she enjoys rescuing and fostering animals of all shapes and sizes when they are in need. In her free time Xio loves singing, writing poetry and trying out new recipes and spending time with close friends and family.
