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!
