Freddy Esparza is a proud Elementary Education graduate (2007) from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces and a graduate of the USC Rossier School of Education MAT program (2010). Freddy spent the last five years inspiring and motivating second and third grade students at Aspire Titan Academy in Huntington Park, CA. He loves working with this majority-Hispanic population of students who are English Language Learners and who, more often than not, have all the odds stacked against them. He chose to implement blended learning because he has taught student populations of higher socioeconomic status backgrounds and sees the advantages these students have over their lower socioeconomic status peers. These advantages and disadvantages have created the achievement gap and he believes that interactions that students experience at home, in their community, and at school create the conditions for academic success or failure. Freddy is committed to making sure that his students succeed.
