Mr. Eric E. Barnes

Greetings! It’s a great day to be a Bray Longhorn! This is my first year being a member of the Bray family, and I am grateful for the warm welcome that I have received. I am especially honored to be a member of such a special community that is dedicated to student excellence.

As a dedicated, instructional leader with 13 years of educational service, including 7 years at the administrative level, I possess a diverse background in working with scholars in both suburban and urban areas in every K-12 setting.  I believe that an inspiring educator ignites a passion for learning in which ordinary scholars become extraordinary. What motivates me as an educator is being able to serve as a role model in helping young people transition into well-rounded adults who are lifelong learners with hearts for service.

I am married to the love of my life, Kristen, and we have four beautiful godchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, sports (Go Cowboys!), cooking, listening to music, and traveling. I am definitely a lover of life and embrace challenges or opportunities directly when presented.

As a lifelong learner, I am excited to learn and grow from the Bray family.  While I am excited to further my experiences, I am equally committed to ensuring that the tradition of excellence continues at Bray.  "Celebrating the Past, Understanding the Present, Embracing the Future" is my personal motto for this special campus. If I can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Go Longhorns!

Educationally yours,

Eric E. Barnes, M.Ed.
