Isabella Capanda ‘19: As construction on the new high school continues and academies start to form, new positions begin to form as well. One such position is the Academy Coach, and Mr. Boggio has been selected to fill it.
This new job will act as an intermediary between the businesses associated with academies, the individual academies, and the teachers to assess their needs to figure out the best plan of motion to achieve these necessities. The position will also create opportunities for students such as internships, job shadowing, and college visits.
However, all good things come with a cost. The position begins this coming August, which means that Mr. Boggio will no longer be teaching.
“I’m excited. I’m nervous,” Boggio said. “I’m a little bit sad that I’m not going to be in front of students everyday because I love the connections you make with the kids and they keep it new and different everyday.”
Since the job is brand new, Mr. Boggio will have a lot on his plate as he paves the way for the future of the academies.
“No one’s had the job before,” Boggio said. “I think there’s going to be a lot of things going on all the time as you try to continue to schedule things for all the different academies and students.”
Even though Romeo High School will be losing a great teacher, they will be gaining a great academy leader.
“I think [the job] will definitely keep me busy, but I’m excited to get started with it,” Boggio said.
Although it is a sad ending to a great teaching career, Mr. Boggio is dedicated to facing this job with 110%. Starting in August of 2018, Romeo High School will be welcoming Mr. Boggio into this new role as the Romeo Community prepares for the changes that the academies will bring.
