Dr. Leticia Espinoza has been a part of the community since 1998. Originally from México, she arrived in Grand Rapids to finish her engineering degree.

At Cornerstone, she teaches language and literature.

“Students become self-aware and learn to practice hospitality in response to diversity when they immerse in foreign language learning and literature; they reflect on God’s love towards all strangers as they become equipped to thrive in their chosen profession.”
