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.

2020-2021 School Year/Google Classrooms:

ELAR 6th Grade - Class Code = 2kpzfbj

ELAR 7th Grade - Class Code = 5mmknvn

ELAR 8th Grade - Class Code = abigx6v

Reading - I was previously the 2nd - 8th Grade Title I Reading Specialist here at BCA and am happy to announce that I will now be the ELAR Middle School Teacher for 2020-2021.  I personally will be working hard to bridge the gap that we have incurred during the Pandemic and will assure parents and students that we will take the necessary steps to make provisions. I provide ELAR teaching through critical thinking reading/writing activities and lessons to support your students throughout the school day.  I will guide students and build upon their reading fluency, skills, strategies, vocabulary in context, making inferences, summarizing, identifying the main idea and overall boost in comprehension during the reading/writing process.  My goal is to prepare and educate our students in being able to apply the skills, enhance those skills and take them to a higher level in order for them to grow and be successful in their educational learning experience. What your child learns in my class, they will take with them into their future endeavors and individual pathways.

In addition, I can assure you that each and every student will be receiving a top-notch education through these difficult times whether it be by a phone call to guide your child or virtually through Google Classroom.  If need be, there are hardcopies on campus for your child.  This is a time now for students to be familiar with technology and to learn how to navigate through online learning especially to be prepared for high school and places of higher education. 

**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. 

~Mrs. Davalos

**Please contact me if you want your child to receive any specific additional school resources for Reading Support by which Mr. Salas will be leading. Mr. Salas can be reached at freddy.salas@bexarcountyacademy.org
