how is the esterification of amino acid carried on in this reaction

i was asked to synthesis this compound from this amino acid, i first alkylated the alpha carbon using enolate alkylating method then i esterficated the amino acid but i’m doubtful that my steps are right, do i need to protect the amino group in the esterification step? or even before ?
