Mr. Bowen was a science teacher when my 'I don't need school since I'm going to be a professional baseball player' attitude walked into his biology classroom in 1987. He was funny, smart, and a good ball player himself. He challenged me to get an 'A' and that's what I needed. Anyway I got the 'A', never made the pros and ended up a biology major at the University of Colorado. Without him I don't know where I'd of ended up. Instead I ended up back where I started from. When you are from Pleasanton that's not a bad fate. If your kid has had him you and your child are lucky. If you can get your kid in his class, do whatever it takes. A great teacher, man and mentor. Thanks Mr. B.
