UIC College Prep

Laurice Sabala is a Chicago born 1st generation Filipina-American. She received a BA in English at Rutgers University and M.Ed in Secondary English Education at the Rutgers Graduate School of Education with a focus on Urban Education. Upon finishing her graduate degree she spent 6 years working in the Greater NYC area. From 2010-2012 she worked with Rutgers Future Scholars as program facilitator and mentor to 1st generation DREAMers, then in 2012-2016 teaching 9th-12th English in Linden, NJ. Spending nearly a decade on the East Coast it was time to return to her roots where she taught 2 years for Chicago Catholic schools. Then in 2021 after taking some time off from the classroom, she finally found her tribe at UICCP and will be entering her 3rd year as a proud Firecat Educator! She enjoys cooking for friends and family, spending time with her husband and 5 year old son at the many beautiful parks in Chicago, and listening to 90s Hip Hop and R&B. Laurice hopes to bring true justice and equity in education for all students of color, particularly those of immigrant backgrounds and unveil the invisibility of being a Filipinx-American.
