Welcome to Rahe Bulverde Elementary

Dear RBES Families, 
 
I am honored to be joining the Rahe Bulverde community. RBES has a reputation for being a pillar of excellence with incredible teachers, students, and parents. We will continue the hard work together which Mrs. Malone, the staff, and families have invested to keep Rahe Bulverde exceptional. There isn’t an exemplary school without involved parents. Your dedication to your child’s school is vital to its continued success. I appreciate all that you do to be involved in our school. We have many challenges to face this year, but our staff is ready for whatever comes our way. 
 
This is my 19th year in education. I started in Austin ISD teaching fourth grade and soon began my career as a reading specialist. For the last 15 years I have worked in Comal ISD. I continued as a reading specialist at Comal Elementary and then moved to Hoffmann Lane Elementary for 11 years as an Instructional Coach and fifth grade reading teacher. For the last two years, I have served Freiheit Elementary as the Assistant Principal. In all of my positions I have strived for excellence in myself and those around me. As an educator I have always respected and honored every student through all of their successes and challenges. No two children are the same and that is very special indeed. 
 
Whether you are selecting remote or on-campus instruction, your child will know that he/she is a Bronco! We are dedicated to providing the best education to ALL of our students. 
 

Sunshine Barker
Principal

Students Discover Passions, Careers with Comal Compass

As students enter middle school, they begin to put their future dreams into action. The question of, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" begins to take shape. By the time they enter high school, they are provided opportunities to "try out" those dreams. Comal Compass is Comal ISD's program that gives those dreams direction and more.
