Mrs. Denise Espinoza, English Teacher

About Me
My name is Mrs. Denise Espinoza. I am a proud product of LAUSD.  I am honored to be in my 17th year of teaching English.  I have taught 9th, 10th, and 12th grade.  I have taught Reading Intervention, English Learners, regular College Prep, Honors, and AP Literature.  I believe in the power of life-long learning, of continuing to expand one's mind.  I hold my students to high expectations because I believe in the ability of all students to succeed.
 
I believe that literature is life! Literature can shine a mirror on ourselves and our lives, giving us the words we did not have to express our truths.  Literature can also open windows onto those individuals, cultures, and/or times which appear to be different from us, helping us to understand others and highlighting the humanity within us all.
