This is Jenina’s sixth year with LFCSA. She started her career as an After School Instructor even before the current Coyote Arts After School Program was officially established. She joined the C.A.P. team when the school decided to have an in-house after school program that would better reflect and practice the school’s integral mission for its students. Inspired by her love of working with children, Jenina attended college and recently earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education from California State University, Los Angeles. She is passionate about art, especially from a multicultural point of view, and trusts art to be one of the greatest tools for therapy and self-discovery. Jenina also celebrates the idea that students can be some of our greatest teachers! She is now the C.A.P. Program Coordinator and considers LFCSA to be her second home.
