Welcome Parents and Students to Ms. Espitia's Classroom!

2016-2017 Courses: Ag Powers and Ag Metal Fabrication, Ag Welding

My name is Erika Espitia and I am an Agriculture Science Teacher and FFA Advisor at La Porte Independent School District.  I am a 2012 graduate from Sam Houston State University with a major in Interdisciplinary Agriculture. I am starting my 4th year teaching and my 1st year at La Porte ISD. I have taught several areas of Agriculture Education and excited to be teaching Ag Welding this year!


I grew up in the Pasadena area and an alumni of J. Frank Dobie High School in Houston, Texas. I was involved in FFA throughout high school. FFA paved my way toward my career in Agriculture Education. Thanks to my past advisors and the support from my parents I was able to participate heavily in the FFA organization and continue my passion for the FFA organization and  Ag classroom for many years to come!


I have an 8 year old daughter-Caydee Lyn. Her hobbies include 4H, softball, volleyball, American Dolls, and art.


I am here to serve the students, staff, and community of La Porte.  I look forward to many more years of serving La Porte.  You can contact me at
