Howdy Grizzly Family!!!
I am Steve Bouldin and I am extremely excited to be the next Principal of Newport High School. I want to take this time to tell a little about myself. My wife, Amy, and I just celebrated our 6th anniversary recently. We have a large blended family of 6 boys, a St. Bernard, and a cat. We have fun chasing our kids around at all their sporting events and extracurricular activities, which include baseball, football, tennis, track, wrestling, and band.
I have just finished my 25th year in education and still love it as much as the first day I stepped into a classroom. After finishing my Bachelor’s Degree at Texas A&M University, I taught and coached in Texas for nine years. I taught in all special education classes and coached football, basketball, softball and track. I guess Texas wasn’t big enough, so I moved to Alaska for the next nine years of my career. While in Alaska, I taught and coached at North Pole High School. I taught Health, PE and CTE courses and coached basketball and baseball. I was also known as the “Voice of the Patriots.” If there was a pep rally, sporting event or a graduation, I was the announcer who celebrated the students. I moved to Washington seven years ago and spent six of those in the Riverside School District and 1 year at Lewis & Clark High School. My wife Amy has just finished her 19th year in education. She spent 17 years as a special education teacher and the last two years as a kindergarten teacher at Chattaroy Elementary in Riverside.
I can’t wait to start working with the amazing students and staff of Newport High School and get to know the families and community members of Newport.
Seeing our Grizzly students succeed in the classroom and in the multitude of extracurricular activities offered in Newport will be my goal every day.
