gave a presentation on the subject of my documentary at the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) conference. while there i met up with james sobredo, who was a colleague of mine at uc berkeley (he was in the ethnic studies department, i was in english). i also spied the names of two former students of mine–claudine and todd. spoke with claudine, who’s now a teacher in san francisco. didn’t get to reconnect with todd, though. felt proud and old–i taught their freshman comp 1A classes!
