Johanna Esquivel is a third year PhD student in the curriculum and instruction department. In her time as a doctoral student, Johanna has kept herself on track in the doctoral program and represented NMSU positively in a variety of ways. She has authored and co-authored several academic articles and book chapters, taught several classes including ‘Sheltered English Instruction for the ESL Classroom’ and ‘Second Language Acquisition’, and presented her research on peace, identity, bilingual education, critical discourse analysis, critical media literacy, and second language acquisition at international and national conferences. Last summer, she participated in a Spanish-English cognate vocabulary project where she taught intervention lessons to second and third graders, helped analyze data, and wrote up the project. Johanna continues to distinguish herself and make NMSU proud as she progresses through the doctoral program in Language, Literacy, and Culture within Curriculum and Instruction. She is becoming a true scholar that the faculty in Language, Literacy, and Culture are proud of.
