Educator Spotlight

Daniel Esquivel


Fine Arts, Teacher

A dedicated educator:

"I am happy to pass the traveling trophy over to Daniel Esquivel for so many reasons. We began teaching at Lakes at the same time, and ever since that first week he has been super warm, friendly, and helpful. Our student council team has asked him for assistance several times throughout the last two years. He has worked with his theater students to provide improv acts, auditorium help, and even tutus! As anyone knows, the theater team works long hours to ensure their students have a great experience, and their accolades attest to great leadership behind the scenes. I have heard from many students that they absolutely love Daniel and the classes that he teaches. Every time I interact with Daniel, he is positive and caring, and I truly feel that he is deserving of recognition. " - Ms. Mastroianni
