Prior to joining Woodcreek, Mr. Bahner served as a Vice Principal in San Jose Unified School District for three years from 2013 to 2016. Mr. Bahner began his teaching career at Eureka High School in Eureka, California in 2005 as a long-term substitute teacher and baseball and basketball coach.

Following Gilroy High School, Mr. Bahner was a Physical Education Teacher, Department Chair, and Varsity Boys Basketball Coach at Christopher High School in Gilroy, California from 2009 to 2013 before transitioning into administration.
Mr. Bahner is passionate about supporting high school students and helping to prepare them for successful futures after high school, while exploring the wide array of opportunities that Woodcreek High School offers to get connected and build relationships with their peers. In addition, Mr. Bahner is a firm believer that with hard work and determination students can accomplish anything they set their minds to.

Mr. Bahner and his family are local residents and enjoy supporting the Woodcreek High School Community at a variety of events throughout the school year. Mr. Bahner enjoys exploring the outdoors, fishing, playing music, reading, and spending time with his family.
My purpose as an administrator is to be honest and fair, visible and approachable, transparent and humble; and to provide timely feedback to students, staff, and families.
