Michael Espinoza, Instructor of Criminal Justice, and Eric DeVillez, Associate Professor of Communications/Literature

“It’s the best feeling when you hear from students. I always want my students to do better than I’m doing.”
Two faculty members discuss their love of teaching and how they came to be at Moraine Valley. Teaching college students was not their first career choice, but they found themselves here, and the “rest is history.” Family was a strong influencer for both men to work at the college; Espinoza’s mom took computer classes to advance herself at work (his three kids also were students here) and DeVillez’s father was a long-time professor. They found a home at Moraine Valley and feel lucky to have it.
