Richard Bowling Family:

Welcome to the Richard Bowling Elementary School website.  Here you can gain access to the happenings at our wonderful school.  For the upcoming school year, we have put many initiatives in place to ensure that our scholars receive the best education we have to offer.  Our scholars will be afforded the opportunity to receive enrichment and assistance on a daily basis.  As principal of the school, I will ensure that we do our best to make sure all of our scholars show considerable improvements throughout the school year.

Although my seed wasn’t planted in Norfolk, my roots run 19 years strong in Hampton Roads.  I spent my first four years teaching fourth and fifth grade at James Monroe Elementary, followed by one year at P.B. Young Elementary providing services as an Instructional Specialist.  Afterward I spent three years as assistant principal at Jacox Elementary, eight years as principal at Chesterfield Academy, one year as principal at Dreamkeepers Academy, and I am now entering my third year as principal of Richard Bowling, home of the Super Hornets.

Growing up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I am an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan.   I received my undergraduate degree from Lock Haven University of PA, my Master’s degree from Indiana University of PA, my principal’s endorsement from Norfolk State University, and my doctorate degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fl.  I am married with three children who all attend Norfolk Public Schools.
