Mrs. Natalie Davalos

Hello Bexar County Academy Family.  I am an Alumnus of UTSA and have had a passion for teaching from my days in High School.  I grew up here in San Antonio in this very neighborhood/community from Elementary through Middle School and then graduated from High School here as well.  I knew that I was going to teach and make a difference.  That is my purpose. 

Objective: To maintain high expectations from all children and promote a comfortable, productive learning environment in which my students are excited about learning; responsible for their lessons by not only completing them but excelling through constructive feedback with confidence by your child.

Reading - I am the 2nd - 8th Grade Title I Reading Specialist here at BCA.  My role is to analyze data and see where our students are as far as how they rank. I provide Pull-Out and Push-In services to support your students throughout the school day.  I identify those students that need guidance in building upon their reading fluency, skills, strategies, vocabulary in context, making inferences, summarizing, identifying the main idea and overall boost in comprehension during the reading process.  My goal is to assist our students in being able to apply the skills that their teachers teach them and be that guiding hand to refine these strategies and enhance the concept of all-inclusive reading.

SUT - I am also the 6th-8th SUT - Start Up Tech Teacher which is a course leading into Entrepreneurship.  This course, per NFTE, "empowers our students to own their futures.” It is my goal to support and assure that each and every student receives a top-notch education through these difficult times whether it be by a phone call to guide your child, through email, through Google Classroom or by hard-copy. I am here to reach out to parents/guardians to assist throughout our distance learning process and to let you know that there are options for your child to be successful in their learning.  Please contact me so we can work together with your child; or if you have any questions via my email address. 

Warm regards. 

~Davalos

**Please contact me if you want your child to receive any specific additional school resources for Reading Support for Ms. Adams, Mr. Salas, Mr. Duran, Mrs. Mireles and Mrs. Lozano or if it be for SUT Class via Email. **

  • Hello students. I encourage you to continue to speak to your family, friends, Mr. Nelson and you know that I am always here for you all as well as all of your teachers and BCA Staff. Remember to stay active by walking and exercising, read, take a break and get some fresh air, eat healthy, stay positive, make the best out of any situation, live, laugh, love and if you have any questions whatsoever; please reach out to me. Others around you are going through some of the same things that you may be experiencing; so talk about it. Don't stress. Love life. ~ Davalos

    These skills and strategies that I add are for your children to use in their classrooms, during lessons, exams and with me during pull-outs or push-ins throughout the school year and also during breaks, summer, distance learning, etc. Your child will use what is best and what works for them throughout their educational pathway.
