I am a third generation Pilipina American and the first of my family to origin to earn a 4-year college degree. I completed both my B.A. and M.A. in Theater Arts at Cal State L.A. and have worked on over 100 professional live theater productions. My teaching experience includes three years of substitute teaching, but my heart is with the dual enrollment scholars in the Compton area. I currently teach theater appreciation at Compton Early College and hope to become a full-time professor someday.
