Prior to coming to Schreiner University, Dr. Bowman’s educational experiences included teaching high school students and serving in the administrative positions of assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent and associate superintendent. One of her favorite opportunities has been to mentor and train principals because she believes they have the most significant impact on campus culture and teacher and student learning. Dr. Bowman is passionate about learning, teaching and facilitating.

Dr. Joan Bowman is married to Dr. Rodney Bowman and they have three daughters. Joan and her family enjoy being together and their favorite activity is participating in runs – especially the Houston Marathon. The Bowman’s have run many marathons and half marathons including the Disney Goofy Challenge and the Disney Princess Run.

Dr. Bowman has lived in the greater Houston area for many years and she is excited to experience the “hill country” lifestyle and become a part of the Schreiner family.
