Patricia Sandoval

When I was a student at HCC, I fell in love with this place. I always wanted to come back. It is my accomplishment and pride to teach here. I'm also proud of bringing Spanish playwrights to the HCC stage such as Dolores Prida and Federico García Lorca.

Robert Aller

As a professor of photography, I bring my very own experiences as an artist into the teaching process through the showing of my own work. I use a practical approach to the teaching of photography coupled with a spontaneous teaching environment for the creative process to be brought out of the student.
