Principal Carmen Santos is a recurring character on California Dreamin'. She is the highly sexual principal of Pacific High North and works as the comic relief.

Carmen is portrayed by Sofía Vergara and made her debut in the series premiere, Pilot.


Carmen was born as the oldest of seven children poverty stricken parents in Bogotá, Colombia. As a child she was taught honesty and respect (two qualities she rarely possesses) and worked for her father's construction company. When she was twenty, she stole plane tickets to Malibu, California and ended up as the principal of Pacific High North, though no one knows how.


Carmen is not a professional principal. She swears in front of students and acts very sexual in front of them two, wearing revealing clothing and saying suggestive things. She's outspoken and has a place in her heart for The Reef Circle.


Carmen has long curly dark brown/black hair and deep brown eyes. She has tanned skin and a curvaceous figure. Carmen stands at 5'9".
