Ms. Silvia Tinajero




    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 on our communities 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 the Los Angeles area or in our global world. 

    After serving LD East as an Arts Specialist for two years and now into my 3rd year,  I hope to continue to focus on the Arts by supporting students, teachers and administrators in our quest to grow the Arts across LD East;  from Boyle Heights down to South Gate. We are in this together, and I am here to support you!
