Mr Eric Goodman, Principal

I am Mr. Eric Goodman and it is my pleasure to serve as the Principal of Richard Bowling Elementary School. Prior to coming to Richard Bowling, I served as an Assistant Principal at Ocean View Elementary, Instructional Interventionist at Fairlawn Elementary, and First & Third grade teacher at Lindenwood Elementary. It is my privilege to create and supervise an academic program that meets the individual learning needs for every student who comes through our doors. The staff and I believe one way to ensure that every student receives a quality education is to build significant relationships among students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Working together we can form a nurturing learning community, where every student at Richard Bowling Elementary acquires the essential skills necessary to thrive in the 21 Century. Thank you for visiting our website!


Kathryn Caple, Assistant Principal


It is with honor and great pleasure that I greet you as the Assistant Principal of Richard Bowling Elementary School. It has been through hard work and dedication that exists between school staff, parents, community members, and students that have increased academic performance at our school. This formula for success will allow us to continue to grow as we prepare for our new building.

I have been privileged to have spent 19 wonderful years as an educator working with students at the elementary level. The first 8 years were as a 5th grade teacher in Illinois. The last 11 years have been as a teacher and administrator here in Norfolk Public Schools.

As an instructional leader, I embrace the task of ensuring that our students are prepared with the necessary tools to be productive citizens as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives.
