Assistant Principal

Greetings Bandera Bulldogs,
My name is Ray Blanco and I am very excited to serve as your Assistant Principal for the 2019-2020 school year! This is my 14th year in education and 4th year in our great state of Texas. I most recently served the community of Burleson, TX in the DFW area as an Engineering, Robotics, and Science teacher. Before that, I served in my home town, Miami, FL as a High School Physics, Biology, and Chemistry teacher and Softball Coach. I am also a veteran of the United States Navy, where I learned above all else that engagement, hard work, and dedication breeds success. I believe in providing choices to our students in order to discover what their true passion in life is.
It is my belief that students grow academically and emotionally when they are empowered to tap into their interests and challenged to strive for nothing but the highest standards. We at Bandera Middle School aim to provide the platform for our students to dream big and give their maximum effort. I look forward to working with students, teachers, parents, and our community to achieve greatness and prepare the future leaders of our town!
