Hello, My name Esteban Rosas and I am the fifth-grade teacher at Mary Immaculate. I joined Mary Immaculate in 2017 and have been working in education for 6 years. My experience has ranged from working as an aide, substitute teaching, running an art class for seniors. and now teaching 5th grade.

Above all, as a teacher, I hope to inspire my students to change their future for the better and to let them know that every one of us has the ability to change our lives.
