Posted 7/28/22

CITY OF INDUSTRY Throughout a 20-year career in education, newly appointed William Workman High School Principal Tim Espinosa has shown a true passion for helping students with special needs receive the support and instruction they need to transition to adult life.


Espinosa began his teaching career in 2002 as an instructional aide for moderate to severe students. After earning his bachelor’s degree in 2009, Espinosa has worked extensively as a special education teacher, administrator, Adult Transition program specialist, and most recently as assistant principal for attendance, behavior support and special education for Bellflower High School.


Joining the Hacienda La Puente Unified family, Espinosa said he is excited as he prepares for his first year at William Workman High, speaking extensively to his assistant principals and staff to learn more about Lobos culture and what makes the school so unique. Channeling the enthusiasm of his colleagues, Espinosa has created a new theme for the 2022-23 school year, “Time for us to shine bright!”


“I am so excited to be able to start my journey at Hacienda La Puente as the proud principal of William Workman High School,” Espinosa said. “Workman is a beautiful campus, with the most incredible, close-knit students imaginable. It’s really a hidden gem in the community. It’s time to show the community who and what Lobos pride is all about.”


Hacienda La Puente Unified Superintendent Dr. Alfonso Jiménez introduced Espinosa during a meet and greet at the Workman Media Center on July 25. Espinosa spoke to incoming and returning students, families, teachers, staff, HLPUSD Board members and the Hacienda La Puente Unified community.


“I am proud to welcome Tim Espinosa to the Hacienda La Puente Unified and Lobos family,” Jiménez said. “Tim fits perfectly with the District’s commitment to providing equity in education and creating an environment in which all students are academically and socially prepared to succeed in higher education, contribute as valued members of the workforce and become productive members of our society.”
