Segerstrom instructors help English learners build skills through art

Alejandro Cruz took the stage with a white chef's hat atop his head. He was ready to act in his pizza shop scene Wednesday in front of his peers, about 20 students bound for eighth grade this fall. "I've got small pizzas," he said to his audience in a theater class. "No no, mijo," Rubén Garfias, the course's teacher, interjected. Garfias then asked Alejandro to fill the room with his voice. "I've got medium pizzas!" Alejandro hollered. "I've got large pizzas! ... Come to Pepito's Pizza, where no pizza is impossible for me!" "Yes!" Garfias said as he applauded loudly.
