“I have been able to incorporate my knowledge and experience with international cultures and customs into all of the classes that I have taught in high school, middle school and elementary school. I have used my experiences and classroom knowledge to direct a Japanese Kabuki piece, to write numerous research papers on the anti-political nature of Mexican Theatre as well as see first-hand the infamous Poor Theatre which was created in Wroclaw, Poland and quickly spread all over the world.”
