“I liked a lot the class with Guady because it was very exciting” (Sofia Fernandez-Couto, 9 years old). "The children loved the storytelling. They were very engaged and enjoyed writing and telling their own stories. It was a wonderful how Guady collected all the stories and made a book out of it. Students love take the book out during silent reading time".

“Guady Serrano Diez is a storyteller who brings stories to life with joyful enthusiasm. Her kind and caring nature endears her to all those who listen to the stories that she has to share”.

“I love having Guady as a storyteller each year, because her gregarious, enthusiasm is contagious to her listeners. She shares stories from other countries, and this allows the audience to envision themselves there - they don't have to know they're learning social studies! It's easy to engage our own imaginations as we hear the stories, and the children's responses.
