A Message from the Principal

It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Laura Carlin-Gonzalez, as the new principal of Baty Elementary School. I am beyond thrilled to join the Baty school family. My passion for education began when I started as a high school mathematics teacher. Throughout my career, I have been a curriculum specialist, assistant principal, academic dean, and director. In each of these positions, my mission has been to ensure success for every student by providing high levels of instructional supports and superior instruction in the classroom. I am thankful to have found my way to Del Valle ISD and Baty Elementary.

Our goal at Baty is to provide a safe learning environment where students can take academic risks and push themselves to their highest potential.  In addition, we expect that our students to follow the Baty Way everyday by adhering to the school-wide expectations:  Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.  The staff and I are ready to kick off the 2018-2019 school year. We have been preparing all summer to ensure that your child receives the best educational experience at Baty. We are pleased that we have many of our great faculty and staff returning and a few new faces that you will meet soon.  We invite you to be partners with us in your child’s education.  To stay informed, download our mobile app at www.dvisd.net and follow us on twitter at @dvisd_bes.  Please join us in this partnership and we will make it the best year yet!
