LA Times taps Esquivel as education investigative reporter

She has also worked in Spanish-language radio and was an occasional substitute teacher.
Esquivel has also served as a weekend cops reporter at City News Service.
Esquivel holds a master’s degree in magazine, newspaper and online journalism from Syracuse University.
