Dr. Freire has worked as an Assistant Professor at Brigham Young University since 2016. Previously, he worked as an Assistant Professor at New Mexico State University for two years. He has also worked as an elementary school teacher for 4 years in Spain and for three years in a Spanish-English dual language bilingual education program at an urban school in Utah.

In 2014, Dr. Freire completed his Ph.D. at the University of Utah with a dissertation focusing on the beliefs and practices of Spanish-English dual language bilingual education teachers learning how to enact culturally relevant pedagogy. His research interests concentrate on equity in dual language bilingual education with a line of research looking at multicultural teaching practices and a second line looking at language education policies in dual language bilingual education.

He has presented his work at various conferences, such as the American Educational Research Association (AERA), American Educational Studies Association (AESA), National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE), La Cosecha, National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies (NACCS), and the International Colloquium on Language and Cultures in School and Society in Spain.

His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as the Bilingual Research Journal, Educational Policy, International Multilingual Research Journal, The Urban Review, and Journal of Latinos and Education.
