My name is Esteban Rosas. I am a recent addition to the Mary Immaculate School family. I am very proud to be serving the community as part of the faculty. After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree from the University of California Santa Cruz, I returned to Pacoima and began my educational career as an instructional aide within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
