Emma Cordray, who graduated this year with a bachelor's degree of humanities and arts in Hispanic Studies and drama (directing), also will teach in Spain, where she spent a summer in Madrid after her first year of college.
Caballero and Cordray expressed how fortunate they have been to work together. “We really think we’ve found something wonderful and unique in this collaboration and it has so much potential to keep growing. There is so much potential for us to grow together,” said Caballero.
