Susie Pallis

I am Susie Pallis, and I am the director/owner of Drama Kids International of Metro West. I have a BA in Theater from Cal State University Long Beach. After spending many years in Los Angeles, auditioning and acting in small parts…I decided to follow my heart and work with children. I have been a teacher since 1994. I love being in the classroom and working with children. Drama Kids is exactly the type of program I have always dreamed of teaching. I am very proud to be able to bring this amazing accredited program to the communities that I call home.
