The Barranca Elementary Bobcats will start the year with a new leader at the helm: Bradley Parker.
Parker has been in education since 1990, working as a teacher at Santa Fe High School and Los Alamos Middle School. He holds degrees from West Virginia University and the University of New Mexico.
Parker has been an administrator since 1996, serving in school administration at the Pre-K to 12 levels in Santa Fe, Rio Rancho and Jemez Valley. He also served his administrative internship at Mountain Elementary.
“For three years I was at the Public Education Department in the Priority Schools Bureau and the Career Technical Workforce Education Bureau,” Parker said. “I have been lucky to work for some great folks!”
Prior to entering the world of education, he was a professional Naval Officer finishing his career as a Reserve Officer and retiring at the rank of Commander (O-5). He was stationed mostly in the United States, but his favorite duty station was Pearl Harbor, where both of his children were born.
Parker and wife Cindy have been married for 30 years. They have two sons, Ben and Adam, both Eagle Scouts and college graduates.
This summer you may have found him fishing, camping and canoeing. When time doesn’t permit for those things he likes to play the guitar.
