Patrick Elementary Principal

This Teacher/Administrator Feature is Bruce Fauble, a long time teacher, coach and administrator in School District #6. Bruce graduated from Southern Oregon State College with a bachelor’s degree in education and began his teaching career at Scenic Junior High School. He spent the next 32 years in School District #6 teaching social studies, coaching volleyball, basketball and football at both Scenic and Hanby. He also coached softball at Crater for nine years.

At Scenic he was also the advisor for the leadership class. When he transferred to Hanby he was a social studies teacher and also taught the leadership class. He started the backpacking program at Hanby taking students down the lower Rogue trail. That program still exists today. After 25 years in the classroom, Bruce was appointed Principal at Patrick Elementary School a position he held until his retirement in 2009. After retirement, he and his wife of 37 years Desi, have traveled to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico and the Western United States. Bruce finds time to play golf three days a week with many other retired District 6 teachers and administrators. He especially enjoys their annual golf trips to Sunriver. Bruce and Desi have two grown daughters, Kayla and Lindsey. They are blessed with seven wonderful grand-children and are grateful that they are able to be involved in each of their lives.

Bruce tells us, “I was blessed to be able to spend my entire career in District 6. Every school I was at had great teachers and leadership”. He goes on to say, “My fondest memories are of my experiences with kids, from coaching to backpacking to being an elementary school principal. It was always about the kids. I also got to hire some of those kids and that was truly a highlight.” We applaud Bruce as another in a long line of outstanding retired educators from School District #6 who have made a difference in countless young people’s lives.
