    In the Arts, our dedication and commitment is to prepare all of our students with the best Arts Education possible. Our goal is to provide our students with Arts Education that is well-rounded, provides them with real-world experiences, opportunities and tools that will help them in their future college and career pathways.  We also want to prepare those students who are focused on an Arts career,  with visual or performing Arts portfolios so they are able to make a smooth transition from high school into an art school or art career. By preparing our students, we give them the opportunity to take advantage of the jobs the Creative Industry here in Los Angeles and our Globalized world has to offer them.

    Overall, LD East's main focus is that all of our students achieve college/career readiness through a rigourous curriculum that will produce life-long learners with a wealth of knowledge in the hopes that they become agents of social change. 

    We will continue to lead with resiliency by prioritizing equity for all students during this semester of distance learning and throughout the school year, remember we are in this together!



    I was born and raised in the City of South Gate, and I have been a part of the LA Unified family for the past 30 years, not counting the years I attended LAUSD schools. My passion has always been the Arts and my goal has always been to make a greater impact by providing our students with more Arts opportunities. Many of our students depend on the Arts as a way to express themselves, it is an outlet and/or passion that may lead them to a professional future in the Creative Industry here in Los Angeles or in our global world. 

    After a almost two years of serving LD East, I will continue to focus on the Arts by supporting students, and teachers in our quest to grow the Arts from Boyle Heights down to South Gate. We are in this together, and I am here to support you!
