Mr. Brooks Baca

My name is Brooks Baca, and this is my 6th year as the proud principal of Bowman Middle School!

I began my teaching career in 2007 in La Porte ISD teaching 7th grade Social Studies and coaching football, basketball, and track. After that year, I moved back home to the DFW area and continued as a middle school teacher and coach in Denton ISD. After five years in Denton, I transitioned into administration as the Dean of Students at Jasper High School. After two years at Jasper, I was given the opportunity to be an assistant principal at Haggard Middle School. After three years of serving as an assistant principal at Haggard, I was named the principal of Bowman Middle School in the summer of 2017.

On a personal note, I've been married to my wife and best friend, Megan, for fourteen years and we have a son, Caden (9), and a daughter, Ellie (6). Both of my parents are teachers and three of my four brothers are teachers and coaches, so we refer to public education as the "family business"! I hope to share the joy and passion for learning that I developed with our students at Bowman!

I am humbled and proud to be a part of the Bowman Family! I love that I have the privilege of working in this community and I've thoroughly enjoyed the relationships that we've developed. I look forward to working together this school year. Please know that my job is to help us all partner together to help students succeed. I believe that we are better together - Go Raiders!
