Ms. Denise Torres
Hello Esperanza Families,
My name is Denise Torres. Esperanza has been my home school for all 3 of my boys. My oldest boy would be 23, my middle son is 20, and the youngest is 15. They all started at Esperanza as kindergartners. I have always loved this school and the teachers that have been involved with my children's education. I have been teaching traffic school for 19 years. Eleven years ago, I decided to go back to school and finish my teaching degree. I graduated in December 2018 from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor's degree in general ed. and special ed. I just completed my master's degree in Special Education in 2022. This is my fifth year of teaching. I teach first and second grade special education. I have always loved teaching, especially elementary school. I am so excited about the opportunity Esperanza has given me, and I hope to get to know all of my students' families and my students.
