Dr. Brad Owings, Principal

Brad OwingsIt is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the Poplar Bluff Middle School. My name is Brad Owings and I have the privilege of being the new principal this past school year. This is my 23rd year in education. I taught fifth grade for seven years in Fordland. I then moved to West Plains, where I taught computer skills for two years. After that, I became the assistant principal at West Plains Middle School. I did that for three years before moving into the principal post at West Plains Elementary for the next seven years. Most recently, I spent the last two years as the elementary principal at Parkway Elementary in St. Joseph. 

As the parent of four children, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional and academic needs are met. During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will partner to provide the students of Poplar Bluff with the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world-class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st century with a solid foundation created here at our school. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions or ideas to help make this the best year yet!  

I am excited about the coming year and the many great things we are going to accomplish. My philosophy has always been to do what is best for kids. I look forward to partnering with each of you in the education of our students.
