Serve the People

To become a High School Ethnic Studies teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Additionally, I want to stay connected to the community I grew up in. I plan to do so by educating the Filipino/a American youth of Historic Filipinotown through Ethnic Studies and Theater so that my students can reach their highest potential and share their talents with the world. I plan to do this by collaborating with Search to Involve Pilipino Americans (SIPA), where students can engage in critical performance pedagogy which will allow them to create  performative art based on their individual experiences, struggles, dreams and stories.
