Work Experience:

Ms. Dávlos has been a language instructor for the past fifteen years.  She has dedicated a majority of her teaching career, to teaching Kindergarten through Sixth grade in both Spanish Immersion and Dual Immersion Programs for the Bakersfield City School District and the Woodland Joint Unified School District.  Most recently, she has ventured into teaching a foreign language at the Secondary School level.   Ms. Dávalos is a firm believer that language is a pathway to success and a gateway to understanding the world.  

Her Early Life:

                Ms. Dávalos was born and raised in Bakersfield, California.  Growing up in Bakersfield wasn’t the funnest of childhoods, as Bakersfield is a major agricultural community.   During the summer months, Ms. Dávalos’ mom believed in exposing her children to the hard labor that farm working families did across the central valley.  Suffice to say, Ms. Dávalos and her siblings would work in the fields harvesting fruits and vegetables alongside their family members.  These summer pilgrimages played a major role in Ms. Dávalos’ life.  She was intrinsically motivated and determined to pursue a higher education.  She became the first, in her family, to attend and graduate from a University. 

Family Life:

                As a child of Mexican immigrants, Ms. Dávalos mother stressed the importance of obtaining a good education.  Ms. Dávalos reflects that when she or one of her siblings earned a B, her mother would always remind say, “Puedes hacer major” (You can do better.).   It was her mother that inspired Ms. Dávalos to possess a level of high expectations for herself and it lead her to attending the University of California at Davis.  During her time at UC Davis, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish with a double minor in Italian and Music History.  She them went on to earn her Multiple Teaching Credential and a Masters Degree in Education from the University of California at Davis.   Being the first member of her family to earn a college degree has paved the road for future family members to peruse the dream of obtaining a college degree.
