Welcome to Silvia's Page
I am glad that you have come to visit one of Laga's Research Scientists at the World Builders Research Institute. I hope you  you will enjoy your visit to the mysterious  and wonderous world of

About Myself
I am the youngest of four children.  My parents are originally from Chihuahua, Mexico. I consider myself Mexican American: I have had the opportunity to become part of both cultures. I love visiting Mexico to relax and keep in touch with my many relatives that live there.   I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in the Los Angeles area, in the city of South Gate.  I really enjoyed living in South Gate for most of my life: I have many fond memories. I now live in the city of Downey, which is just east of South Gate.

My Work
I am currently a substitute teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District.   My goal is to find a position as an Art Educator at the Junior or Senior high level. My passion is art and I want to teach and share my passion with students who need an outlet. I want my students to be able to express themselves in a creative and positive manner.

My Education
I received two AA Degrees from Cerritos Junior College in Art and in General Studies. I then transferred to California State University Long Beach, where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art with an option in Art Education.  I now attend California State University Los Angeles, where I have almost finished my Single Subject Credential and am unofficially enrolled in the Masters Program in Education with an option in New Media Design and Production.  I hope to integrate the knowledge I receive in my Masters Degree by combining it with the art curriculum, or by working for an educational company as a program designer.

My Interests
I really enjoy painting, but I especially love to sculpt.  In the future I hope to sell my own pieces and open an inner city gallery, where the voices of people of all colors and creeds can be heard.  I also enjoy visiting museums, listening to different styles of music, traveling , hanging out with my friends and family and just enjoying life to the fullest.

I am very proud of these huaraches, this was my first oil painting!

Here I am outside of Long Beach State's Pyramid on graduation day
and getting my hands full of plaster, while creating a life sculpture.
I really love working with my hands!
